  • AHL (Hartoy) American Highway Legends 1939 Peterbilt 260

    I hope I didn't trespass private territory starting a thread here. Every thread of a Featured Model was started by jt3. Please move my thread to a proper location if I am guilty of trespassing.


    AHL (American Highway Legends) were made by Hartoy in the early 1990's. I had about a dozen different AHL 1:64 scale models until early spring this year. I sold all of them to a friend except this one which was found in a tote last night.

    I think this model would be good to use in a 1940's to very early 1960's gas station diorama.

    The AHL trucks are awesome. I, too, had quite a few at one tine when I had a diorama for farm toy shows, They are nicely detailed models and great looing rigs from a past era.

      No trespass at all. Thank you for your submission!

      I did attempt to feature your submission, but it appears the images are hosted elsewhere. Unfortunately the images have to be hosted here on the site to operate with the featured function.

      I took the liberty to edit one of your images and upload to the site, that seemed to fix the issue.
      The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. 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 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.

        Thank you jt3!

        I think your Marx thread should be the sticky because a lot of collectors have forgotten about Marx, and new collectors don't know much about Marx.

        I rarely think about Marx, but it was a part of my life growing up playing with many of the toys that Marx made (along with Mattel of course). Thanks for posting that thread. It brought back happy memories for me.

          I don't know if you are familiar with Swifty's Garage. This place is the extension, or "son of" if you will, of that site. A long running feature there was the "Car of the Day." The featured model here is an extension of that, only I put up a model once a week due to personal time constraints. This board has always been open to submissions from other members, and early on some members even discussed the possibility...then failed to come through. Life happens, no hard feelings on my part, but this feature is open to anyone else who wishes to participate, just probably better if done in some orderly fashion. So your submission was timely and appropriate.

            I think you are doing an excellent job with the "Featured" car jt3.

            I wanted to bring attention to AHL (Hartoy) to Garage members who didn't know about the company. They are available at toy shows for reasonable prices

            If I ever decide to start a thread in this section again I will ask before I do.

            Thanks for explaining and your understanding.

                BTW, just a friendly FYI that you made a typo by accidentally adding the letter "U" in the name Peterbilt in the title of your thread. The correct spelling of it is in my previous post above. 😄
