I've been trying to track down one of these Dinky Superior Criterion ambulances for a while - typically I bid on two and won both! This one's far better than the other

As these are often missing the tailgate, it was nice to find not only was it intact, the driver, passenger and patient with stretcher were still inside - should have cleaned it before I took this pic!

I've tapped a new source. Theres a junk shop in Worthing that seems to have a good supply, so they have been taking all my pocket money lately. They seem to have a lot of Majorettes, so maybe they get them from France.
I'm very pleased with the late bay ambulance, complete with casualty in a leg splint in the back .

We are also having a bit of a clear out in our boys bedrooms, and I found some more interesting stuff they picked up at boot sales.
The all metal ramp, my neighbor gave us. Theres no makers mark, any ideas?

What is the other green car on the far side of the Fiat 127?

Great finds! I think I have the 127 in gold..........has it a dog in the back?

Correct, and yes, the fiat has a dog in the back.

Here are some boot sale finds from the weekend. Yet another Majorette, an Alpine A310 this time. The Hotwheels I have already in their boxes.
The Tonka buggy was a 50p no brainer. I picked up a green one last year.

Always thought it odd that the dog is hanging out of a window that doesn't open

I like those Tonka buggies, I've redone a couple and got this very rusty pink one recently - currently trying to remove the corrosion from the body and rust stains from the plastics before I repaint it

Does the colour changer police car still change colour? Should go yellow. I've one and let the kids use it and my colour change bajas a while back and they didn't really change. Some cracking finds, Corgi Mini and Royal Mail van.

I paid a fair bit more than that but ive got used to buying older items for ott prices.
The paint chips on the top of the wing are about as bad as it gets.
The propeller is in tact so no complaints from me :)
