Some people are lucky enough to have a collection of classic cars. But, this is an unaffordable hobby for most people. Collecting die cast cars is a way for anyone to have a collection of their most loved, most desired cars or other vehicles.
The first die cast vehicles began appearing in 1934. Originally they were additions to model train layouts to add more realism to the tiny towns they created. They weren’t designed to replicate real cars in the beginning. The first to appear were Dinky models, called Meccano Modeled Miniatures, six vehicles were included in a train set.
