Hello, my name is Gabe. I live in Pittsburgh PA and of course I'm a diehard Steelers, Penguins, and Pirates fan. Aside from sports, work, and being Dad I have been a Tamiya collector for many years.
It all started back in 1984 when the old man gave me a Tamiya Frog for my 12th birthday. Several friends got cars around the same time (Grasshopper's and Hornet's) so it became a fun time passer throughout the summers. My father also got me a Super Champ and Boomerang when I was young and I was constantly tinkering with them. Never raced just backyard fun.
Probably didn't look at the cars much thru high school and college. Then I had to move away for my first job and my parents asked if I would take some of my old belongings so I grabbed my 3 cars. This is around 1998...and suddenly I found Ebay! So I rebuilt my 3 old cars and essentially got completed hooked again. Been a collector builder of Tamiya exclusive cars/trucks ever since.
Hope you enjoy some of my cars and I look forward to seeing some of your rides as well.
