I've been collecting for a number of years now with an end goal project in mind. It started off as a bit of a pipe dream but as I've gone along I've found the number of cars I actually want, and am yet to get, diminishing.
I, like most probably, keep a journal in the form of a spreadsheet and, on receipt of a delivery the other day, the counter of what was left to get ticked down to 1,040. I go along at about 20 cars per month so I would be starting 2021 with less than a thousand cars left, triple figures.
Ok, I'd still be a few years away from finishing in reality, but there was something psychological about tipping that milestone.
I guess most of our collections may become finite as fast newer cars become a rarity - only so many fast pre 2013 models out there after all.
But I guess the question is, how close have you got to actually finishing?
I know the saying is "the quest for speed is eternal" - but is it if you're not modding?
Thankfully I was pointed in the direction of Dircastracers top 250 list and I added another few months worth of models to my list! Will be a while before I hit 999 now!
