1.) Photography

2.) Scale car model collecting. I have a 35th ann '02 Cammy SS, '98 Lexus GS400, Nissan 350Z Nismo *-Tune, blah blah, the list drags on.

I build plastic models too, I'm more into building Japanese offerings generally not found over there that I can only drool about (and build)

Currently building me a third-generation Supra:



Only, mine'll be white, have no stickers, and the wheel will be factory silver (not painted black). Gotta run out and buy some more spray paint.

Next on the list:





... GX81 Toyota Mark II.



http://www.hlj.com , importers of hobby stuff from Japan, not just Japanese cars! Apparently they have some more rare Mustang stuff put out by Japanese companies.

I enjoy building models myself. Do you know if any of the manufactures are producing a 2004 Bonneville? All I can find is the 58 Bonneville.

I was an avid model railroader as a kid, and still have all my N-scale (and some Lionel) trains in storage. I have plans to unpack everything and set it up someday, when I have a second garage w/ loft built. Until then, my hobbies are ebay, internet forums ( ), and always looking for ways to save money on *everything*.

Oh Yeah... I still have that Tonka truck collection. A couple early 60'* dump trucks and a full set from the mid/late 80'*, and a few of the newer plastic ones.
