Thank you! My stepdad asked my sister last week how many Matchbox and Hot Wheels I have. She had no idea...neither do I but I'm working on that, too! I managed to secure a needed "E" boxed model as well, by purchasing this #55 Mercury Police Car.

I was also quite happy to find a silver-wheeled #14 Bedford Lomas Ambulance, a model that I'll eventually display with the "D" box I already have for this model.

Some great finds and at this time of year too. Always nice to add wanted models to a collection. Nice going and good eyes on the metal wheels too.

Thanks for the comments...great finds like these are what makes the hobby so much fun! Above is my most desired Cresta with its "D" type box which is of course, one of the 18 "D" models I don't have. This particular one is currently on Ebay at $385.00 (I think!). So I would say it tops my wish list right now! It's something about these two-tone models Lesney did so beautifully very appealing, as they're so reflective of automaking at that time. This particular one is even more so with the box model colors to match. And it's complete with its era price tag of 39 cents on the side flap!

Wow yes, the pink was a colour change.

Yes, the pink/gray combo is especially nice as it really stands out among the cream, gold and bronze versions that were produced. And easy to understand, once I started collecting pre-1967 models, why the Cresta remains so popular among collectors with so many variations. The Jaguar XKE, though, still remains my favorite of Regular Wheels as I have noted several times in this forum. Simply beautiful. Hoping for a green-windowed version eventually.

Your photos seem distorted or stretched to the sides some. I have revealed your first Photo.

Thanks for that, there should be one more photo, not sure why I cant show them using your instructions, maybe because I'm still using Windows 8?

Re: latest arrival 2 years, 2 months ago #236

There were only three photos there and two were showing on the site and there so only had to edit one photo for you.
I don't thing windows 8 matters. Are you highlighting the little box of the photo before you go to URL and after you delete the thumbnails? do you click somewhere in the dialogue box to make the picture show in the boxes lower pane? It should work if that happens. 2 more clicks from there and it is ready to post and will show up in your respond page before you post. Then hit submit and it should all be there.
