I was reminded of My childhood By a Thread on here last night and I mentioned a Toy car Ive had for Years....
I had a look at it earlier (A Red Toy Fastback) and it took me back to days of Pushing It around the sandpit at Eton Wick School (Something that was frowned upon altho I would spend every playtime being told off for partaking in such Pastimes.):lol:
One of My then best mates (a lad Called Gary Richardson) had all the coolest Toy Cars and it turned out His Parents were Big Collectors of the things.
Seriously the Place was like Museum
Every room had Cabinets of the things and they also Manufactured White Metal Kits (Mikansue)
My mind was then transported to the Model shop they opened in the Village (Long gone now sadly, but the next owners Son got me into the whole VW thing....a whole different story)
anyway roll forward to today and I was browsing thru an Antiques shop today and i found a long out of print book on collectable toy cars............ written by his parents:eek:
How fuckin freaky is that :eek::lol:

Yup I did buy it:lol:

Quote from Pocket calculators Poem thread yesterday.....Thats really Good.Reminds me of my Childhood Visiting my Uncle Sean in Camden.
Fuckin Tops was My Uncle Sean,He used to be a caretaker In a big Tower Block (Looked like Nelson Mandella House of only Fools)and would find me all manner of interesting stuff Old tellys radios, A really cool Radiogramme a big Pile of old Records.....Well all these things were great till they went Phut/Stopped Working/Burst into Flames/Fell apart.
I have a Matchbox Toy Fastback from him and it is one of my treasured Posessions

I had a white bug, a blue metallic bug, and some other random ones, but I only remember the 2 bugs, the purple fasty, and some old american thing :D

I haven't seen it for years! Gonna have a hunt! :D

Yeah seems to be a weak spot, the red ones are the oldest - all three are slightly different especially the pink one with '70's radiused arches and fat wheels!
