For as long as my memory allows me to remember, model cars have always had a huge following and this is largely due to the diverse demographic it attracts.
And former racing driver, Nabil “Billy” Karam from Lebanon is no exception. Having previously set the Guinness World Record for the largest collection of model cars in 2011 with 27,777 cars, he later broke his own record in 2016 with a total of 37,777 pieces of model cars.
Nabil’s obsession began early on at a very young age. Sadly, his collection was stolen when his house was broken into and since then, it’s been a dream to rebuild that collection and then some for the former president of Porsche Club Lebanon.
At the beginning, the collection began with a sole focus to collect the cars he used to race, mainly Porsches, but since then the collection has expanded to dioramas as well and as you can see from the video, Nabil has never looked back; amassing a mind-boggling display that’s unimaginable even in a 6-year old’s wet dream.
