WOODINVILLE, Wash. -- Eleven-year-old Anthony Schmidt's closet is filled with his extensive collection of miniature cars.

Anthony says he has hundreds of them, both newer ones and antiques.

Cars became a vehicle to deal with his daily challenges with autism. Determined not to let his struggles hinder him, Anthony switched his focus, using his cars, a camera and a lot of creativity.

He arranges and photographs his big collection of cars and shares his pictures with his followers on Instagram.  He also has a calendar featuring his work.
