Model Cars2467 of 2727Try and buy a Chrysler Imperial promo, you'll have to step up...  A real one is not much more.  Same is so with many cars..I love the detailed look & workmanship of the 60's & late 50's Matchbox vehicles.

Watching "Pickers" we see a part of America that produced quality products. In a smaller scale, I "pick" quality toys that were made in a time when detail surpassed profit as a toy maker's mission statement.
The car carrier with a red cab was produced in great numbers in light blue. I wanted the red/silver version so I bucked and paid the highest bid on ebay. Other Matchbox cars were lucky finds. Average it all out and it all works out.

    I love your travel trailers.Being in the the tourist mecca of the black hills of South Dakota, (home of Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, and the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally) I focus my toy collecting on cars with travel trailers and motorcycles. In the late forties and 50's my family traveled the country in a 49 chevy carryall, and a Spartan trailer. My mother wrote articles for trailer life magazine. Ah' those were the days.
