John Dixon’s obsession with the Porsche models started when he was passed by a 911 in his muscle car in high school - from there, he was blown away by the car. He bought his own Porsche a year later, and really got serious about his car collection in the 90s. The Taj Ma Garaj collection is now considered to be one of the most eclectic Porsche and Volkswagen collections, along with Porsche unobtainium, rare literature, collectibles, engines, and an assortment of arcade ephemera. The collection was opened by John to thousands of visitors and enthusiasts over the years.
