Welcome to my blog!

Welcome to the first post of Jasmine’s Garage.

This blog has been a long time in the making. Depending on your powers of perception, your foresight or premonitions, you will soon realise that I love all things automotive!

My name is Jasmine. I am a collector of 1:60(ish) scale diecast cars. My favourites are Hot Wheels (d’uh), Majorette, Matchbox, Corgi, Johnny Lightning, and, if it were possible for me to get my paws on them, Tomica. I also restore and customise models, and will be showing those too.

Unfortunately I have no fancy studios in which to photograph my models, but I am working on creating a diorama whereby I can give these really cool creatures justice.

You are probably here for one or a number of reasons. Either you love everything automobile related, like me. Or you like seeing big things in miniature… like me. Or, you may have randomly followed a link here, in which case you’re an internet explorer. Like me. Whatever reason you are here, we have something in common!

I will be posting photos of the vehicles in my collection (it is well into the hundreds and growing always, so there will be plenty of posts to come). I will also delve into a little bit of information about the vehicle in question, as I am also fascinated by the story behind each car – the real thing, and the model too.

I will also be giving my opinions on the cars. Obviously!

Please enjoy the photographs, and be sure to give your opinions if you want to.
