And your acorn may very well be hiding within our pages. Enjoy!
JSS Diecast Software was created in the mid 1980s for use with my own collection. It all started with the truck pictured above, a Danbury Mint 1953 Chevrolet, which was exactly like the one our neighbor Bill owned. I so admired that truck as a young kid that when I saw the model in a magazine I had to own it.
Expecting an upscale toy I was rather surprised when the model arrived; this little truck was a miniature version of our neighbors' truck. I had played in that truck for hours on end, and knew all the switches, lights and smells like the back of my hand. I was so impressed with my first model that I had to own them all.
Like most new collectors the buying frenzy went out of control; each model was better than the previous one and before I knew it my collection of one had grown to over a hundred models in what seemed a nanosecond.
As my collection spiraled out of control I realized I needed a way to catalog my collection; in the event of my passing my family would know what I had and the value of my models. Hence, JSS Diecast Software was created. It wasn't until a year or two later when another collector, visiting our house, witnessed my database and requested a copy. The rest is history.
As our base of collectors grew we realized we needed a simple way to update the die cast models database. Since most collectors aren't computer savvy we created the JSS e-Newsletter/Updater which allows the collector to simply download the monthly update, which updates the models in our database from our website. Once the file is downloaded to their local machine all they need to do is double-click the downloaded file and our software does the rest. We believe you will find our software very easy to use and your family will appreciate it too.
Anyone that runs our software knows we will bend over backwards to help them not only with our software but with any computer problem they may have. You see first and foremost we are a collector and JSS Diecast Software is an extension of our hobby which has become an important part of our life.
Any donations which we receive are used to keep this site up and running; we don't make a dime off this site.
JSS is home to many collector's, friends that have come to call this place home. I hope you enjoy your visit here, and if you would like our software but can't afford a small donation to help out with the cost contact us and let me know and I'll see that you receive a copy on us.
