The inside journey of a mega toy car collector

Fast and Furious is out and all my car crazy friends (especially the team at Carousell Motors) are hyped! This hype translated into a spike of activity on the car-related items on Carousell. Scrolling through the cute Toy Car Collectibles feature, my eyes popped at one Carousell profile: @jeffwong3968. This dude had over 6200+ diecast toy car listings (no duplicates either, mind you!) all in super neat display and a whopping 444 positive reviews on his Carousell account! Feast your eyes on this gorgeous Carousell album of diecast car collectibles: I wanted the full scoop, so I decided to lure the man out from behind this gem of a Carousell account. Unassuming and full of sunny vibes, Jeff came to meet me in a true vintage Volkswagen Beetle, the cutest car I had ever seen (and subsequently rode in 😛).

Top 5 tips for buying a second hand car

“One thing people never ought to be when they’re buyin’ used cars, and that’s in a hurry.” – California Charlie, Psycho That quote came from Alfred Hitchcock’s classic 1960 movie Psycho, and there’s a lot of truth in it. But that was over 50 years ago and life has gotten a lot more fast-paced since the good old days of B&W films and Marilyn Monroe. We’re so stretched for time now that when it comes to doing some research about a second hand car, it’s highly tempting to just declare “Ain’t nobody got time for that.” But despite our crunch for time, it’s a big commitment and with car prices the way they are, we want to be pretty confident in a car before we commit to it. To help you get the best of both worlds and make the process faster while still getting the right information, we asked the guys at Carousell Motors what their Top 5 tips are for buying a second hand car.
