Phew! Glad that orange Panhard made its way safely to the North West of England. And to think that this time last week, I was merrily stuffing it in wrapping before posting. The wonders of modern international postage!

It was incredibly well packaged and arrived completely unscathed.

 

Thank you so so much again!

 

It's my first Norev Panhard and it will forever be remembered to have come from as far away as this planet allows.

Well, if you need some more picking up, I'd be happy to pay a visit to the store again. I'd never been before but it's a great little place, which deals mostly in second hand die cast stuff, from what I saw. Here's some photos from the visit:

Yeah, not die-casts but I took these photos in case there was anything of interest to JM.

Trifecta of plastic Norevs, with the Peugeot van apparently quite rare. The guy running the shop was happy to do a deal, especially when buying multiple items, which I thought quite fair. The boxed Matchboxes for instance are priced at around a fiver, which I think is very good for a shop that's based in Auckland. 

 

 

To mark the event, I picked up a mint (but slightly tatty box) Solido Renault 18 for a fiver (well, $10, so near enough)

Now that you mention it JM, I recall you posting that up a while ago. I love obscurities like this!

 

So do I. But you will have to agree that the Austrian Wild currently tops them all.

It'll be a while until this is topped.

There is still a lot of old Corgis and Dinkys up for grabs at the Junktowers.

None of them are mint, much to the contrary. But they all are bona fide restoration bases, otherwise a lazy bum like me wouldn't have kept them.

They are available for local pickup, because I simply can't be arsed to pack and post them.

And yes, they are free. They cost nothing. Rien. Nada. Zilch. Nix. Fuck all.

 

Any interest?

 

Form an orderly queue.

I've given my old Matchbox, etc die casts to my son to play with, one thing I've noticed was a lot of the cars I had in the 80's were the sort of stuff you could see on the the road and were RHD, all the new ones he's bought from tescos, toy shops, etc are LHD. I've not really seen Corgi for sale anymore, and ignoring collectors models does anyone still make Matchbox type cars in RHD?
