  • First few diecast

    These are the cars that started it all back in the late 50s~early 60s. Didn't know the degree of addiction, and they definitely lead to harder stuff!!!...LOL

    Super-fine ones to start with. Early exposure to Matchbox highly influenced how I see cars. My first-ever Matchbox was the 70-B Ford Atkinson grit spreader.

      You kept them so nice. I guess our childhood Matchbox were a gateway for many of us to start collecting toy cars, if not through memories, or a new found love of realistic miniatures, some had simply never stopped admiring them from childhood on.

      My first couple from memory was the 22 Pontiac Grand Prix with the 23 Trailer Caravan in pink

        Those were early ones for me too.

          My Mom and Pop bought me mostly all Matchbox when I was a kid. My Pop liked them the best because they looked like real cars and not cartoons. Of course that changed a bit in the 70's as MB was making some fantasy stuff.
