    It's finally nice to see all that stuff you've been telling me about. Love the protos, it's neat to see some of the ones I have but I still have a long way to go.

    That is truly amazing. Your collection merits its own temple let alone a room. It's like the room in the factory where all the important decisions are made.

    Wow, thanks for sharing this!

    I really like how your shelves have the clear doors, keep that nasty dust away!

    Did you make those yourself, or are they pre made?

    Very nice!

    Awesome collection! :D  That's got to be the biggest collection of protos & test shots I've seen in one place.

    Very impressive. Love all the protos and those are great wall display shelves. The cars looks great displayed on them.
