Share my 37 years childhood passion toy cars: Aamir Ashfaq
My pursuit may not have gone far enough to earn a world record, but such a collection is still unique in Pakistan. Each of my cars has a history, “Memories may fade with time but these cars take me back to moments in the past”. When I hold a car in the palm of my hand, I remember things I had forgotten about the past, and this gives me immense joy. In fact, I can’t explain it in words.
Based in Lahore the historical city of Islamic Republic of Pakistan, I have managed to collect nearly 5000 model cars over the course of 32 years. I started collecting cars when I was only eight years old. It was quite difficult to collect a large number of die-cast cars in Pakistan because of their non-availability.
