  • Indefinite leave of absence

    Hello folks!

    As the title says, I believe it is time for me to focus on other projects. As a result, my collecting of diecast is going to be coming to an end, as is my presence on these forums. I may buy a car here and there and keep my current preorders, but nowhere near what I do now. Lol. I feel that my time and money needs to be focused on real car projects that I have, and no longer diecast.

    It has been a real joy and pleasure these last four years, and I will miss you all greatly!

    For the final time.

    Thanks!
    Ben

    Thank You Ben! We have had some great times together over the past year that I've been able to talk with you on here. I am still very appreciative of the 2016 Kyle Busch Indy Win Liquid Color you gave me a few months back, it is the gem of my collection. It was awesome to be able to interact with you as a forum regular and to see parts of your collection in Show and Tell. I do hope that you would reconsider leaving the forum all together as it is fun to see your views on things but it's your call. God Bless you and your future plans, hopefully all the 1:1 scale cars go well for you.
    -Kyle

              I quit collecting for about 18 years. Raising and supporting kids through private school and college. I never lost my love for racing and collecting. So a few years ago I was able to resume my hobby. I never sold one of my diecast the whole time and they never left my walls.(Except when my wife wants to paint the walls. Then they go right back to the same spots.) So good luck with your other endeavors and always keep the fire dimly lit. God bless sir!

                Wish you nothing but the best Ben. Hope you'll check in every once in awhile.

                I'm curious now. What projects? Whatcha building? Does it involve a big block?

                  Best wishes always, Ben. I'll cherish and continue to enjoy the McMurray 1st win car you hooked me up with. I hope you'll do the same with the truck painting I did for you. God bless.
