This lot of cars have lithograph detailing and represent a time when a small amount of change bought a tin friction powered car made in Japan. It looked like the one your parents would drive. Ford Galaxie, Lincoln police car (the Japanese didn't know we wouldn't use a Lincoln for a police car). The Rambler has the years 1958 and the colors are perfect after all these years. Why am I so taken with these old toy cars?
