    SO, I also ended up with a boxful of my old metal toys...not so much because I actually wanted them (I really didn't, now being able to play with *real* cars and trucks when I want to...?) but because Mom insisted that I "needed" to have them. Oh, they're here and I guess I need to figure out something to do with 'em...might as well do 'show & tell' with some of 'em meanwhiles. :-)

    This first pair are both TONKA #52680 Volkswagen Beetles, in green and blue. Dating from the late 1960's or early 70's, they are now (no doubt just like many of their full size 'real life' brethren) kinda beat up and rusty, with a few little missing or busted bits here and there. Other than color and wear they look identical, measuring about 9"L x 4"W.

      Wow...yet one more old showing of mine I somehow neglected to recognize all y'alls for looking at and hopefully enjoying.

      Digitali5, Virginia.vintage, iggy, fortapache, Caperkid, Wandlessfairy, Tahiti1, nutsabotus6, lisa, Recordmantime, hunterqlee, Vynil33rpm, Newfld, Brunswick, and kwqd -- THANK YOU ALL SO VERY KINDLY, if maybe also belatedly, for stopping by and sharing the nice comments and <love it>s. Means an awful lot to me to have so many 'virtual friends' here at CW today in otherwise has been rather a rough day on my end...

      PEACE AND LOVE to all y'all... :-) :-) :-)
