      I see it's different posting pictures here. Had to reduce my pictures by 50% on Swifty's. Here it has a option for small medium or large. I chose large for this one to check it out.
      Going to have to get use to it.

      A few from the Swap Meet
      Yatming and Corgi Exxon and Shell Gasoline Tankers, Corgi Ford Capri, Majorette Utility Truck, Matchbox Mega Blaster Cap Car.Click image for larger version

                    The garage gets my vote.
                    I'm surprised anyone would still have one floating around. Looks to be in good condition.

                      they're out there & after Tomy used them they sold the molds to others
                      Matchbox & Buddy L used them

                        I noticed that Tomy had a few variations of the garage. I've seen them stamped made in Taiwan, Singapore and Japan.
                        This one has a Japan stamp on the base.

                          So was since the pocket cars were basically a US release was this version of the garage sold in the US - don't ever recall seeing it but also know in those days I was more excited to find the Tomica models on the pegs.

                              Does the launch mechanism still work?
