  • Spotlight on.............Ferris

    Next up is Mr Beuler, sorry... Ferris...

    2. Where are you from / where do you live now?

    I grew up in South Setauket, NY on Long Island. I now live about halfway between Richmond and Williamsburg, VA.

    3. When did you start collecting Cars?

    Last year when I started my Christmas shopping for my 2 year old son, I picked up the main characters at Target (LMQ, Mater, Finn, Holley and Francesco). I donít recall exactly when I decided to start collecting the rest of them, but it was sometime around the Kmart event in October.

    4. Why did you start collecting Cars?

    Iíve always enjoyed collecting and the thrill of the find. When I realized how many were out there and there were many that would be challenging to find, I guess I was hooked.

    5. How many cars (roughly) do you currently have?

    226 (although that number will likely increase tomorrow).

    6. Which diecast car is your favourite (only one allowed)?

    Komodo

    7. Which car (from the movie) is your favourite, and why?

    Fillmore. Who doesnít love a hippie VW bus?

    8. What has been your best ever find?

    I found a Rip and a Kabuto during a $1.99 sale at Target.

    9. What car(s) do you currently own?

    2009 Toyota Venza & 2011 Mazda CX9

    10. What is your dream car?

    The upcoming Acura NSX looks pretty sweet!

    11. What do you do for a day job?

    I manage the repair department of a company that manufactures analytical instruments. I started with the company as a product specialist in 2005 and transitioned into the service department about 2 years ago.

    12. Other than Cars Collecting, do you have any hobbies?

    iGadgets, Horse Racing/Casinos/Poker, NFL/NBA/MLB/NCAA (Giants/Knicks/Mets/Georgia Tech), Camping/Fishing, Fantasy Football.

    13. What is your greatest ever achievement?

    Iíd like to say my kids, but my wife really deserves most of the credit for them, so Iíll have to go with obtaining a Masters of Science from Virginia Tech (although the Bachelors from Georgia Tech was probably more challenging).

    14. What is your favourite ever TV show and favourite ever movie?

    TV: 5-way tie between Seinfeld, Cheers, Simpsons, Family Guy and Lost
    Movie: Clerks


    15. If you won "Who wants to be a millionaire", what would you do with the money?

    Open up a toy collectables shop and give everyone at PCD a big discount!

            Cool to learn more about you, Ferris. I guess a lot of us started collecting Cars when we started getting them for our kids.

              Nice to learn more about you, Ferris... I see you've listed Fantasy Football as a hobby - I've been part of a league the last 4 years and have thought about seeing if we have enough interest for one on PCD.

              And as bobbyjack said, many of us started collecting for our children (or grandchildren in my case)... and we keep on going long after they outgrow Cars.

                    I've been doing it since 1992. Back then we called it a Rotisserie League. I got my first taste of "fantasy" in 1991 with a NBA league and the following year I ran one for MLB. This was before all those nice internet sites, so I had a subscription to Baseball Weekly and had to update all of the stats for every player by hand!
