Nice collection there, I had exactly the same Burago Rancho with the windsurfing gear on. Is that a large plod Dinky Capri next to it? 

It is indeed the plod Capri. Very well played with that one!

Like for the group4 trucks with the safe combo lock on the back

I had to crack the safe as no idea what the code was!  Great news that the trucks of gold are still in there!

I'd be pretty emotional at being presented with a large chunk of childhood which I assumed had been lost forever. What a result!

NEC Corgi Escort 35 van is an interesting one. Royal wedding Metro lasted longer than the marriage too! 

I'm of mid 70's vintage- I reckon you must be something similar looking at your haul...

Some great stuff there, Dinky Plymouth Gran Fury police car and Corgi Caprice are versions I haven't tracked down yet, as is the Dinky Princess.

At least the repainted Corgi Mazda B1600 camper was the more common red one, rather than the white.

Not very clued up on fire engines - what's the big one at the back?

Found a box of old cars in our loft earlier, most are from my older brothers and from the 70’s & 80’s.  They are well played with and have been passed onto my son, we put them away about 4 years ago when we moved.

The big Bburago Rancho is very rare in that colour, most were green like the one I have.

I'm guessing you are about my age, early 40s.

The big Dinky Capri is also a nice model, I guess that would have been handed down as its earlier. I have it and it weighs about nine tons.

I actually think the Capri is 1974-1976 so it wasn’t handed down!  I later into the 40s sadly 😂

Probably mentioned it before but I was really hoping the Rancho would resurface when we were packing up ready for a house move this time last year. No such luck, although I did find a Burago BMW 635 I'd forgotten having.
