Actually, the last pictures is probably a Rover, now that I look again. I have no idea what that first blue car is or the white one after it. I do like a nice Austin Healey and have driven a few. Nice model and nice car to drive. The carbs are a pain to keep in tune.

This is my most recent Vanguard. I have not started to collect the cars yet, just the trucks. I will take a few pictures.

My first Vanguard - a Morris Minor van celebrating Corgi Toys 50th Anniversary at a Roadshow. As it was limited I bought two.



Ironically the Bedford is actually a Corgi, not a Vanguard. Also a 50th Anniversary model in the same livery. Just wanted to show that.

Morris 1300 Mk2 Estate #1960/4000



Personally I think they did this one wrong. It has the Mk2 front grille and the Mk1 rear lights.
