Father and Daughter Make a Great Diecast Collecting Team...

Great article about a "family affair" with a killer diecast collection.

Few fathers encourage their children to drive fast, but Chuck Walker is no ordinary dad. His passion for racing cars began at age 13 when he attended his first drag race and today, he and his daughter Michelle, age 14, share a passion for both drag racing and collecting diecast drag racing cars.

By the time Chuck was 16, he had taken his dad’s drag racer out to a local speedway, and ended up leaving with a trophy. Throughout the years, his passion for racing led him to compete in races across the country, even coming in as runner-up at the 1998 US Nationals by just .002 second. Three years ago, Walker’s passion for racing led him to begin collecting diecast drag racing cars.
