  1. That's interesting. A few days ago while rummaging in my box of diecasts I found the Budgie models that I've owned from new (yes, I am that old).

  2. That is a late one as production ended in 1964 and they did keep the suicide rear doors to the end.
  3. A more thorough rummage through my die cast box failed to produce any more Mini Dinky models but I did find a few Majorettes. Chrysler 180.

  4. Liked for the Austin A60 on the driveway.
  5. Floppy top R8, £750 BIN. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1995-ROVER-214-CABRIOLET-NIGHTFIRE-RED-METALLIC/233656648191?hash=item36670581ff:g:4pUAAOSw5YpfFcua
  6. I'm sure I had a chat with the owner of this at the NEC last year. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Panther-Rio-Very-Rare-one-of-only-18-built/224085092417?hash=item342c832841:g:tUYAAOSw7G1fBYti
  7. You wouldn't lose this on a car park, assuming you could find a big enough space. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1973-ford-ltd-brougham/184351045885?hash=item2aec2db8fd:g:bpsAAOSwpd9e9NEl
  8. Great minds think alike. 🙂
  9. Can't decide between a convertible or a woody? With this you can enjoy the best* of both worlds. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1985-Chrysler-Le-Baron-Town-Country-Convertible-WOODY/233658499554?hash=item366721c1e2:g:xg0AAOSwk5pfGZax
  10. I mentioned yesterday that I had some Mini Dinkies and after a brief rummage in the box I found the Ford Corsair and Corvette. They have had childhood repaints but are otherwise in good nick.

DSCF1514 by timothy jones, on Flickr Guy Warrior sand truck which still has its sand. DSCF1508 by timothy jones, on Flickr VW 1300 with typical 1970's holiday roof rack. DSCF1509 by timothy jones, on Flickr VW overhead maintenance truck. DSCF1512 by timothy jones, on Flickr Elevate. 🙂 DSCF1513 by timothy jones, on Flickr Studebaker Wagonaire Ambulance. DSCF1511 by timothy jones, on Flickr DSCF1510 by timothy jones, on Flickr I also came across a Matchbox Zodiac MkIV which looks as if it was being prepared for a restoration at some time in the past as the baseplate has already been detached. DSCF1515 by timothy jones, on Flickr The windows and wheels will need some work but it does still have its spare wheel. DSCF1516 by timothy jones, on Flickr More finds from the chod box soon.
  11. I remember buying some Mini Dinky cars from a petrol station in the early seventies, I should still have them in my box of childhood diecasts. IIRC I had the Corvette Stingray and Mustang while my brother had the Chevy II and Corsair. I'll have a rummage in the box and see if I can find them.
  12. I enjoyed it last year so you can put me down as a yes.
  13. I 've been summoned for jury service in September. It says for two weeks but the last time I did it in 1995 it lasted about 10 weeks.
  14. I've got a couple of Heller 1/24 Bugatti T.50 kits, I might do one of them in those colours.
  15. Apart from the poor panel fit around the front end the Ford looks good. Mine's looking better after a rinse under the tap and a wipe over with a cloth. DSCF1491 by timothy jones, on Flickr I popped down to Halfords for some £3.00 spray cans yesterday. DSCF1492 by timothy jones, on Flickr There should be enough there for a few more models.
