Bring on the cars and trucks whose manufacturer and/or brand are no longer around, but the vehicles live on (Studabaker, Austin Healey, Triumph, Dusenburg, Bugatti, Stuz, REO, Oldsmobile, Yugo & Daewoo, etc.)

To start if off, here is a 1952 Pegaso Z-102 by Altaya 1/43

Mid 50\'s TR-2. Body style was the same or similar for a few years. Great sporty little car with a four cylinder tractor motor. LOL  Just like most British Brutish cars of the era.

Rev rev. rev them up.

They called them Triumph\'s because the name tractor was already taken. :}

Actually, I have always enjoyed the Triumphs I have owned. Strangely, no TR3, but TR4, TR4A and TR6.

Double Dutch....
The Daf truck division has survived, but it was over for the car division in 1975. It was sold to Volvo that rebadged the cars, made it a lot heavier (safety items) and raised its price by 2.000 guilders.
Sadly, the Dutch model manufacturer Lion Toys/Lion Car went bankrupt this month

Franklin Mint Tucker Torpedo in 24th scale. This one is a real beauty, the details are top of the line, even the seats are textured. Air cooled V8 and the cyclops center headlight. I bought this one in the early 1990s

tiniest diecast Austin Mini (the gold one) ever made and extremely sought after was made by FunHo! who closed its factory doors in the 1980s.

However, thanks to enthusiastic fans like the late Barry Young the FunHo! Museum churns out new sandcasts models from the ex-factory foundry in Inglewood for collectors and demonstrations for visitors.
