No more things to tell you for the time being. Hope we can have any "chat"
or something similar, whatever you can think about; about that terrific
hobby called "toy car collecting" Your nº1 fan,"

Editor's reply: I have asked the technical support people at whaticollect.com to look for a way that members can up-load their entire list of cars as Manuel suggests. We are looking for a way to do this.
How do you do. I am Japanese toy car collector Takashi Yashiro, 42years old living in Tokyo. I have 2 sons, 8 and 6years old. I collected MACHBOX in my childhood during1966 to 1970. But I changed my interest from toy car to plastic models, rock music, European movies and 19th century's novels as time passes. When I became a father, I met my son's toy car (TOMICA) again. and I 've remembered the days full of discoveries and delights. So, I re-started my toy car collection 8 years ago. Now I collect 3600 models toy cars(2500 are TOMICA).
I found your homepage full of love for toy car last summer. And I was surprised your wonderful toy car list. I can get a lot of information from your list! To tell the truth. One day, I tried to access your list with humming. But I could't access! whaticollect.com? member ship? site moved? Oh my god! Where is my Mr.Doug Breithaupt!? I thought there was no doubt that your homepage had changed member's only by some reasons! I thought in panic I must entry in whaticollect.com for meet your excellent homepage again. I decided and done all, but I couldn't find your homepage in the member's zone. After few minutes, I could find your list and many dear contents in open space! After all, my poor English-like this composition-arise this happening.
But now, I can get your contact. Though I 'm afraid what I can do, I'm very very glad to be a member of your community and be your friend. Thank you for your reading my destructive English! I hope I can introduce my collection someday. Sayonara! Mr.Doug Breithaupt. My best regards,"

Editor's reply: I realise that many TofTC readers were surprised by the changes to the Webzine when we connected with whaticollect.com. We are still smoothing out some of the bugs associated with the new pages and features. I am sorry for any inconvenience and I think that the value added to our site will out-weigh any initial difficulties. If Takashi thinks his English is destructive, he should see my Japanese!
Nice idea on the collective, but it's a little confusing getting into
your normal pages. Further more it's not that clear when on a page how to
get back to yours. The webmaster has been sending me some mails about no
registration confirming; why is this nessacary? It's a little simuliar to
Yahoo but not easier. Regards,"
Editor's reply: Again, the transition to the new pages has had a few rough spots but I think we are getting them fixed.
