I finally got my mucky little paws on a 100,000km VW watch from the late 50s or early 60s.
I've been wanting one for years but they've always been a couple of hundred quid or more.
My mate in Berlin saw this one on eBay local over there, for €75. I gave it a quick polish and it's come up like new!!! Not had for 60+ years old. :)

I'm really pleased with it, it's an absolute belter. :D

I found a few interesting bits at the boot sale yesterday, noticed this Batcopter sitting on a table away from the box of 50p cars. Assumed it would be £££ but was 50p.

Having bought that and a few other 50p cars, I moved on. Caught up with the mrs a bit later and she asked if I'd seen the big box of cars a few rows back. Went and had a look and it was the same seller - but I'd missed this sitting on the floor

I think it's early 70's, can't find another online. Not bad for a couple of quid

Bought a few vans n cars from an antiques store last year. Just practicing putting pix up. No idea why they're posting as doubles.
Those Commer vans are great, I haven't found the Milk float but got these two from the previous boot sale

The Police one has a working light (or at least it used to), the Ambulance is part of a set where you can swap the rear body to get different types of vehicle

That isn't the rear body off the red one with Trans-o-Lite headlamps, strangely although that and the army version have the rear body cast separately, they don't come off.

Ive been viewing this thread since the start but couldn't figure out how to post pix and get involved.
Now just got to figure out how to not post pix as doubles lol.
Got another CO-OP Comma van and a few other cars ive picked up along the way.
Ive got a minor addiction to antique shops so will probably have a full blown collection before long.
More pix to follow.....

I don't know if this belongs here but I thought it was worth a mention. There's a new range of remanufactured Corgis out, usual partwork deal of low prices initially to entice you in, but the first one is sent to you FOC for approval, think it's only a few quid anyway if you don't want anything else. If you stay subscribed you get the next one (Mini) for a tenner plus some free gubbins like a repro 1966 catalogue and a tin, then it goes up to £20 for each car after that. The Thames ice cream van is really nicely done
