Hi all,

The toy car section (http://www.oldclassiccar.co.uk/toys.htm) has been on the site for years, but I thought that a thread celebrating old toy vehicles needed adding in as it's been a while since they last cropped up on here. I took a few fresh photos, using an old board game as a backdrop for the racers.

Schuco


Victory Industries


JNF


Another Schuco


German Auto-Union?


1950's Mettoy.


Marx (UK).


Gescha, similar to Schuco, comes with a quick-action jack for the rear axle.


Any other toy car collectors in here?

RJ

I have a collection of 1:43 models, mostly of cars that I have owned:



But I also have a small display of French exotica from the 1930s:

I must say Rick, I like the Gescha.

Hi
The Victory Industries Mighty Midget is interesting, according to this it was available in red, blue and green or a construction kit.
