  1. I didn't want a German or Japanese car. I ended up with a 3 year old Mk4 Mondeo estate in 2.0 tdci zetec flavour. 8 years on I still have it. I'm actually stumped as to what I'm going to replace it with when the time comes.
  2. Cars don't come much more grandad than a Vauxhall viva hc! I'm not that old,honest
  3. My '78 Viva being loaded up to do an autojumble earlier this year. Home made trailer by my Dad at least 30 years old now. Little 1256cc Viva pulled it admirably,albeit rather slowly. Amazing the amount of shi.... Er...quality items you can cram into a Viva wagon!
  4. Ah,so not too bad then. I know nothing of tin plate,just what info I've found on the net. It was fun getting it to work again
  5. I'm actually looking for the Bandai large bump n go version,with the light up removable engine and working lights in white if possible. I had a used one as a kid,but it got wrecked. So when I spotted this smaller version it was like a tramp on a bag of discarded chips! Paid €10.00 for it,dunno if that was a good price?
  6. Picked this up last Sunday at a autojumble. Made by Taiyo in Japan,it's a 1960's tin plate motorised Volkswagen. Of course it didnt work,but some tinkering and a replacement motor got it to move. Gave it a good clean,lube and polish and it trundles around the table quite happily. It has a clever mechanism underneath that stops it going over the edge. I won't paint it as I quite like it as it is. "Fill her up please smoll Eddy" "You taking the piss M8"
  7. Another repaint, lesney Mercedes coupe. Painted with a brush,but now chipped again. Time for a refresh. "Wotcha reckon smoll Eddy?" "Very classy M8"
  8. Next under the knife is this daubed Lesney Victor. Fill of dirt,seen some serious puddle action over the years! Here it is in all its miniature glory,modeled here alongside the inimitable smoll Eddy! "This to your liking smoll Eddy?" "Very fond of the GM brand M8"
  9. Another regular wheels lesney repaint. "You like it Smoll Eddy"? "Very Rock n Roll M8"
  10. One battered,and repainted Matchbox Wolseley 1500. A quick trip to Eddys motors for a swift blow over. "Looks great Eddy" "Makes me look huge M8"
  11. That needs some red oxide patches,and at least one panel painted a different colour too.
  12. Here is a little oddity I found today. Looks like a Matchbox Mercedes,yes? Except it's not. It's a Dinky! Made in Bulgaria. Alongside an original Matchbox version of the casting. I've heard of Bulgarian made die cast cars,but have never owned one until now. Another addition to the collection.
  13. That 4cv really looks excellent! Love the worn through paint. It has real character.
