The Simca is well worn and daubed with nail varnish or something, but still my favourite!

luvvly... I had (possibly still do) some of those cars. I have a metro like that one but in red, a Sierra 2.3 Ghia of the same scale, a Match box Mk1 Capri and a 'Bauer Miller' convertible BMW 325i among others...

I've got or had all of the models you've shown in the photos apart from the Metro but had that in a larger scale also by Corgi, till I painted it all over in Humbrol bright yellow & eventually broke it up as a 'scrap car'! :roll: :lol:

Toy cars are another indicator of how things changed in the 1980s. Up till then toy cars were mostly everyday cars but since then they have been mostly supercars.
