    Guess i'll start thread in here too. New stuff just keeps rolling in. I got a box from realgone58 and pegers, tons of odd stuff from here and there, auction buys and some new cars from pegs. Only if i had a chance to take pics 😓

    Latest addition is the only one that got in front of my camera.

    Tomica is so rare find here that I usually buy any I come across.

      Taking pics of my finds seems to be nearly impossible at home.
      Mila has learned to walk and she has fast and grabby hands. 😥

      Today I went to a motorcycle swap meet.
      Found something.

      I have a vague memory of a discussion on this model in Swifty's Garage.

      Sorry for the bad pics.

        some wear and tear but a nice little group..i have a feeling in the near future you will be spending more time with Mila than hunting cars.

          Neat to hear that Mila is becoming very "helpful!" That Lego Bedford fire truck is awesome!

            My wife doesn't really appreciate that i have a little helper that carries cars everywhere or tries to eat them 😅

              Any ID help with the Team Power vehicles is appreciated.

                Some nice items there - some of the Team Power models remind me of YatMing castings but that is just a wild guess on my part. Liking that Nex Ford Police Car.

                  Liking those Polistil cars!

                    I have a feeling that the Team Power vehicles are Tomica copies.

                      I was thinking the same. The Crane next to bottom I am 98% sure is, it has been copied many times. The Dump Truck under it and the Bulldozer look familiar too.
                      The image file limits have been reset. We have over-limit warnings for the past 3 months and I've had to lower the image file limits. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I know I've mentioned many times before, but it is very important to downsize images - doesn't matter if they are hosted elsewhere or here. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The new limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

                      Thank you for your understanding.

                        i am liking the wellys.

                          I'm digging the Polistils, especially the Capri! That's a great trio of brown Euro-Fords.

                          As you know, those are very seldom (if ever) seen on this side of the Atlantic. Sadly, the same is true of Wellys these days.

                            Some auction buys.

                            Got a mixed lot of garbage from the same seller. Picked the most interesting cars to me.
