ZOUK MOSBEH, Lebanon: Deep inside the Karam family's lumberyard lies Nabil Karam's treasure trove: a two-floor museum replete with model cars, airplanes, boats and dioramas of Karam's rally team as well as re-enactments of the Lebanese civil war.In 2011, Karam, a professional race car driver better known by his nickname "Billy," broke three Guinness World Records with 27,777 model cars and 333 dioramas. Three years on, it's no surprise cars are still the center of Karam's life, but at this moment it's safety rather than speed that preoccupies the rally racer. Q: Did you have a love for model cars and dioramas as a child?I go around the whole world to look for the cars that I want.Lebanon has gone through years of war, so I built war dioramas to show the stages of the wars that Lebanon went through.I now have approximately 400 dioramas, and I exceeded 30,000 model cars.A: Of course the car I drove and won with, which is the Porsche.... The cars are now very expensive, and I need to have a lot of free time in Lebanon.
