I live in Great Smoky Mountains - East Tennessee. I have been the assistant editor to Jay Olins' D4C (Die Cast Car Collectors Club) since 1997. I became a member of the board and forums moderator, online, at the Diecast Zone soon thereafter. In the "Golden Age of Diecast" I did most of our reviews and photos of model cars sent to me by the Franklin and Danbury Mints. I was honored to be inducted into the Diecast Model Car "Hall of Fame" for 2007. I'm pleased to be part of the new and expanded website.
