Hi guys. Just like to show you some of my pedal cars. First up is 2 1960s plastic Triangs. The first is a Ford Corsair and second is a Triumph TR?

Great items and in perfect condition, these can't be easy to find... Triang made some great toys.. underestimated in my opinion..but these are special..Thanks for sharing...

I'll look forward to that book. Thankyou. fabulous Spot On display. Again, I had them as a kid and was always impressed that the cars were to scale with the buses. Happy days.

Those pedal cars are in immaculate condition. Another is the old photo showing the loading docks showing Austin Vans loading prams which Tri-ang also was famous for. Well that is my guess about the Austin or could be a Bedford.

The old photo shows a possible code 3


Gunner I think it could be an Austin

Yes Theo would be easy even in tin or plastic. Yes nothing is impossible for PD. Just pick up a Dinky oldbeater and bingo. Actually I think I have one somewhere. Well got lots of them well loved to nearly death types.

Now  for the two that are pride and joy. My two Austin J40s. The red one you see here is the one used in the film One Good Turn starring the one and only late Sir Norman Wisdom.

Wonderful collection, must take up some room displaying those. As for your yellow Triumph it is either a tr4 or 5.

Thanks guys, Andy this is the one you asked to see, its my latest and its a do I or don't I? It's all there, been touched up in places and the rear wings should be black towards the end. Just one headlamp lens missing. As you can see, bumpers and grille are all diecast so will clean up fabulously.

Cheer's Vaughan for introducing me to Planet Diecast, I hope to learn & share the interest which we have shared over the past long years with other collectors. This ones a definite don't too much originality.


 I will add some pictures of some of my collection.
