They need to get out of the box though so they can get some air. A little track dust probably wouldn't hurt. :d

I agree with TNB, you need to let those babies breath some track air. they are not meant to be shelf queens. thats what the Delorean and the mad max are for!

Yup addiction! I can't handle them being in the box though. They have to be out and diplayed. It's hard enought for me to have them on the dummy chassis. I have to be able to drive them to really appreciate them. Nice colletction though ;)

I thought an addiction was when you traveled across the country to vist family and you pack your mini-z's and find a place to race while your there :) :D :p

Nice try Phredd......some might say that not knowing all the circumstances.....

Did I fly clear across the country with a bag full of Mini Z's as carry-on?
Yes, guilty as charged. But with the following considered......
....I was on holiday (what's more fun than Mini's) :D .....
...there was racing to be had within an hours drive of where I was on holiday (an hours drive is acceptable ...isn't it?) :rolleyes: ....
....I couldn't pass up a chance to drive on a brand new RCP track could I? (never mind that the track was some 2,488 miles from my house in Oregon) :eek: ....
....did I mention I was on holiday? :) ......
....I did get to meet some new faces and make a few friends (at least I hope we are still friends) ;) ...
....., I knew that housed up with all those relatives (14 adults and 9 kids) would only last so long before I would need a day away (if ya know what I mean)...so the bag of Z's was a good escape excuse :o .....
,,,and finally, I WAS ON HOLIDAY! :p


a great hobby to be in? You bet!
addicted? Maybe, you have to be the judge of that.

Well I have never done that with Mini's, but have done that a few times back in my 1/10th scale racing days.......but that's another story, or two....or eight, ten, maybe a couple of dozen? :D

there´s a second collector, also in germany, owning at least as many: both guys compete in something as sick as having every body at least once... not that easy, there are very scarce ones...

cd, i did feel better after i saw these pics...

Ya that's a huge collection. He's even got his own track to run on. So i see 2 bodies that must of been custome painted, 1 being the yellow and blue mercedies dtm on the middle top shelf and the 2nd one is the silver and blue dtm that he races. I've not seen them in this scale befor. I know Tamiya released a 10th scale version of the Silver and Blue DTM on their TA04 chassis.

well, he misses some colours, but hedoesn´t really care yet.
he misses:
- MadMax interceptor - Dirty version
- Silber Plated DeLorean
- Western police Fairlad RS-2 (RS-1 already there)

all newer Bodys are already in his ollection, not yet in the pictures.

but he does have some scarce jewels, like the limited Jota (1000 Units in Japan, for some magazine)

I just wait until the other crazy guys takes pictures of his toy cars.... ;)

CoolDragon, those are great photos.

He has a few that i'm missing. First I noticed that sweet Black Jota I should have not let pass me by on ebay. Thought there would be one or two more posted but they never materialized.
Anyway,ask you German friend if he has any interest in some no longer availible mini power bodies.
Pougeot 206 Nine of them. All original. all factory including the matt black one is factory and is Jet black. 4 have imitation carbon fibre hoods that look real. (Factory)
And there is one Beetle that is MiniPower it has factory rear wings that look great on it. - photo here.

It's an addiction/obsession if you never use them and just stare at them. It is a hobby if you beat them to death and constantly replace.

So yes, you are addicted. Seek help.


(i would be willing to help you recover by buying a few of those at discount prices :D )
