Then there are three I bought in April of this year.
Dinky 482 Bedford Van, Dinky Toys for $11.86





Then the 40H Austin Taxi in Dark Blue for $10.88





And the Rambler 193 Cross Country Wagon for $28.95






I also have a 173 Nash Rambler Wagon I got for Free back in July of 2011. I will restore it along with the Cross Country.

And a Dinky 162 Ford Zephyr for $20.21 also to replace another Jag XK120 also on my Car Transporter.

Last but far from the least is a Spot-On 104 MGA, my First Spot-on Car. It cost me $18.59 and is missing the windscreen and steering wheel. It also has a rear axle problem as you can see in the pictures. You can see that the axle has been pushed forward.

Some nice cars there Malcolm. I like the MGB GT on the back of the Guy flat truck and that early Ford custom in nice but a bit much for my taste. The Trans Am is very nice and highly detailed. What scale is it, 1:24?

I thought it might be but they take up so much room. Now I know whey the details are so nice and clean.

I like you Divco Milk wagon. I have a Road Champ version I got from a Buddy in Pennsylvania. Sadly he passed away a year and a half ago.
Here it is among some Vanguard models I used to have on display. They are not put away to make room for others.

Great finds and I really like the Service Station Personnel. They look great. Are they originals?
