Editor's response: It is ironic that the most recent Land Rover to
join my collection was sent to me from Malaysia. It is a new Tomica. There
are quite a few Land Rover models currently available in 1:64 scale. One
of our TofTC writers, Brian Willoughby collects the real thing and I'll
talk with him about a story.

Editor's response: Glad the site is helping you with your collection.
As You may have noticed, I finally decided to use some toy cars to buy a
real dream car. Hot Wheels just are not as much fun on a twisty road as

Editor's response: Thanks Joe, I like the Playarts too.
Well about a month went bye and I had to go see doctor. Well one thing lead to another in conversation and the doc leans back and looks at me and says. "Larry you got to much free time on your hands" get a "Hobbie". So here I am now. I went to the net and started looking at things. Shesssss, I thought its big on collectors. Seeing this I started to buy a few here and there. Then seen some were in sets of numbers so I had to look harder and get them too. For it is common sence that a complete set of anything is worth more then having part.
Now I started off with Hotwheels only. It grew and grew and then I seen some really neat matchbox cars and decided to add them to my cars for they were just really neat!
Then along came some really nice Racing Champions and I just had to add them also. Kind of like to day I went out and got me this really neat state police car for the state of Kentucky. Its a 1950 Ford 2 dr sedan with big red lights on fenders.. shess and then I seen this 1921 Fort Model T, with coca'cola on it. Well had to have it too.
In about a years time I have one heck of a collection of cars now. Even had to buy me this glass display to show some off.
Oh almost for got the thrift stores around here. I was at one the other
day and found a Tootsietoy Fire Truck, made in Chicago and now I am trying
to find out how old it is and its worth. Not that I am saleing mine. "s'
But found this bus. White over black and it is made by Tomica, called
a isuzu bonnet bus, no.6 s-1/110. Cant find a thing on it. If someone knows
the worth of these two I mention please email me info (AMERICANDREAM@worldnet.att.net).
"thanks" ps... I think I am addicted to small cars now..hahaha"
