Got up at the crack of dawn today to help a friend who was cleaning out her house and was having a bootsale. Seriously, WHY do these start so early?!

Some nice finds were found. First, there were these nice 1/36-scale Corgis:



All are original issue, including the Starsky & Hutch Torino. Torino is mint with perfect stripe and just a bit of plating wear to bumpers. Escort is dead mint, Lotus is also mint, with a bit of lifting to front sticker. Mercedes has a few small chips, some odd plating wear to the bumpers and is missing the star, while Minissima is nice with a few small chips. This lot were £2.00 each - not bad at all!


Then there was some Matchbox and a Tomica:



Superkings low-loader has a couple of smal chips to the edge of the cab roof, but is complete, with no damage to the plastic exhaust pipes or the even-more-fragile winch. The Merc ambulance is mint and I only paid £2.50 the pair. Tomica Porsche is a Made-in-Japan one and was £2.00.

All in all I was pretty pleased!

[b]As you should be. Nice find even before the garage sale starts. I assume these were part of what your friend was going to sell? I like the lowbed trailer and I have that same winch from another lowbed Matchbox trailer. Fits up nice with a larger trailer I am doing for a 1/25 model Chevy Bel Aire towed by scale \'55 Chevy Stepside Pick Up. Both models done by a friend, you may know him, HIPPIE>lol

Thanks, it was quite the little haul. Oh, but these weren\'t hers, I got them off other sellers. She didn\'t have any toys, just clothes and household stuff from the (very messy) cupboard under her stairs!

Very good find and the Mercedes Ambulance is looks in great nick and the front drop low-loader still has the hook.
