A middle-aged Mexican man who has spent a third of his life collecting toys for the anime ‘Car’ has become the Guinness World Record holder.

Local media recently reported that Guinness has recognized Jorge Arias Garcia (45) of Mexico as the owner of the world’s largest ‘car’ toy collection. Garcia received Guinness certification in February, but this fact was officially announced on the 15th (local time), seven months later.

In the interview, Garcia smiled broadly, saying, “It took a while to get certified, but isn’t it just a dream of life anyway?”

He said, “It was the first item to collect because my daughter asked me to buy a toy.

Since then, he has collected over 1,200 pieces of Car’s toys from around the world. What is interesting is the fact that each story remains a record.

Garcia bought car toys, numbered them, and kept a record of where they bought them, their price, and the story behind them. Each collectible has its own story.

There was a time when I happened to see a market on TV and saw that they were selling toys for cars I wanted, so I ran to buy them.

He said, “The original price was 50 pesos (about 2,900 won), but since it’s a reversible product, they asked for 800 pesos (about 46,900 won). said. The price of this toy continues to soar, and some say that it is now 5,000 pesos (about 293,000 won).

He is so passionate about collecting car toys that his name was known to the animation production team and he even got the director’s autograph.

Garcia said, “I am very happy to have another Guinness record in Mexico, which is famous as a Guinness powerhouse.
