3,000 Total Firebird Trans Am Variations
August 6, 2013 Update
Well it finally happened. As of July 2, I have
retired. So work on the new house and garages
continues. The second three car garage should be
finished this weekend, and then the 28 car garage starts
after that. When that is finished, I will begin the
task of opening 30 yrs of boxed toys. I will take
better pictures and update the site at that point.

Hi, my name is Gilbert,
and here is a quick history as to who I am.
I started collecting
Firebird toys in 1979. This was after the
purchase of my new, Blue 1979 Trans Am.
At first, I just wanted to
have a few cars that looked like mine. I bought a few, just once in a
while, whenever I saw one I liked. I was amazed at how many different
brands, styles, and variations there were. Then I looked at my old Red
Line Hot Wheels from when I was a kid. I was surprised to find a
Custom Firebird, and
Light My Firebird in my collection.
I'm not sure where or when
it happened, but at some point I fell into the Collectors black hole.
Over the years, it became my goal to have the largest
Firebird collection in the world. My son
and I went to toy shows here in California, and became regulars at all
the stores. Toys R Us, K-mart, Wal-Mart, Target, etc. You name it, we
went looking for toys. Our vacations and my work schools always
included going to stores looking for new finds. So, how did we do??
Well, my collections now numbers in the thousands, including several
hundred Red Lines in package. I have many
open cars, but have always tried to keep them in package, to preserve
the true flavor of how they were new. This has been more than a hobby
for me. It has become a labor of love, commitment, and dedication to
the spirit of the Firebird Trans Am. This has carried over to my real
life, as we have a few real cars in the family now.
