Collecting miniature trucks a consuming passion!
When you’re mad about trucks or cars it’s not always possible to fill your garage or garden with the real thing, or indeed to buy a football stadium to keep them in!
How do you become a collector?
From a young age children like to collect things like marbles, stickers and model cars…These things are not acquired in huge quantities and it’s the fun side that comes first.
But as kids grow up a collection can become all important and soon invade the home! Usually adults restrict themselves to one type of miniature vehicle. If you collect cars, you probably concentrate on one make or one time period and there’s no lack of products to tempt you! A collection of miniature trucks is rather specialized and requires a degree of investment.
The full size truck is impressive with all thattonnage it has to pull along investing in the miniature version can be profitable. In the same way as cars, there are all sorts of models and you can specialize in collecting different brands, like Norbert Dentressangle which is so distinctive with its white logo on a red background. American trucks also stand out because of the amazing artwork painted on the cabs.
But beware, a collection of miniatures soon takes up a lot of room and acquiring a rare piece can cost a lot of money!
