In Alkmaar is an ice speed skate ring. In the summer, it is not active, so once in a while, a carboot is held there.


This was my score:


A complete Siku Parkplatz, with fences, lamp-posts, officebuilding etc, and as a bonus an extra truck and trailer.


And a Siku Mecedes Benz Aral tanker
































These are bought for resale.


And this is for my own collection:


Dinky Toys 196 Holden Special Sedan. In very good condition, i was hunting for this one a long time, and for only 20 euros.


















This is my second Holden, the first was a MicroModels given to me by Gunner Jim a while ago

Wow, I love that open-air car parking set, could have played with that for Hours on end driving in and out through those little barriers and finding an empty space!


The ARAL tanker, a prime example of Siku's best tool making and modelling skills.

Thans Kees,
it is a general carboot, the guy which I bought the Dinky off is a NAMAC member and always has a stall there, the right hall on the left hand side wall
The 2 eldery people with the Siku trucks were just glad they got rid of a few items

That car park is excellent am i right in saying that this came as a set with the trailer with the yellow supports on but a different lorry ,one which had a ridged open back.

Yes Andy, that is correct.
I found out that the original tractor is a different one. Well, I am not a Siku specialist after all

It was fun making the carpark

The reason this one sticks in my mind is that there was a little toys shop called Ann's which two sisters ran , they were very old when i was small & it is only a few years ago that the last one died & what stock was left in their shop which closed in the  early 90's was cleared, I wish i knew what happened to this stock. Anyway , let me get back to this subject, they used to sell Matchbox toys & then they changed to selling Siku & I remember them showing me this model & telling me the positives to this make to Matchbox , I never bought this as it was a fair price then but I did but an orange Transit school bus which was more in my price range.

The EJ Holden came with a suitcase in the boot, are these available as a reproduction ?
