Hi,
Thought i would post a few pictures on my museum here in Houston, Texas. There is more but i couldn't photograph it all.
While i was here a delegation visited me from the People's Republic of China. They were very excited to let me photograph them with their favorite cars .
They are the last 4 photos.

Thanks,
Bernard

Bernard I think you mistakenly posted the last photo four times by mistake because they all look the same to me.


Absolutely amazing! Well done and keep up the great work.

Cheers,

Tom.

Totaly fabulus. I now belive in the saying Everything are bigger or better in Texas.

You must have 1000s of slotcars.

Have you ever seen a 62 Chevy impala in 1/32??

Happy x-mas and a happy new year.

Have been looking at your website, most impressive please keep up the good work. I have been looking for a decade for a 62 impala. The Kader one is a 64 or maybe a 63 impala. The front window and body sides are different on the 62.
Someone told me that an american manufactur sold a set with racetrack and a 62 chevy and a 62 pontiac. Have been looking ever since. think the manufacturs name was something like Eldor?

HI

I know they say a picture is worth a thousand words ... but in this case you could write thousands upon thousands of words and post the pictures to go with them and you would still not get the full impact of Bernard's museum/collection. Must be seen to be believed and even then, takes your breath away! Bernard, thanks for posting the pictures!!

all my very best,

Charles

Hi Bernard,

That's amazing! I had seen the pictures Chuck took from his visit, but they were more of the individual cars, so I didn't really grasp the extent of the collection (although I saw a lot of your other collections...).

Thanks for sharing this all with us - and keep 'em coming!

Merry Christmas (get any new "gifts"?)

Don

My cousin is working in Houston for a year and has just insisted I bring the wife over in the spring. I'll definitely have this on the list of "must see" in Houston (along with tickets to an NFL game!).

It looks fantastic.
