1998 - A Monthly Toy Car Webzine About Miniature Motorcars - Volume 1, Number 1-6
Editor: Doug Breithaupt, Contributing Writers: Brian Willoughby and David Cook

Welcome to Tales of Toy Cars, a monthly publication. This publication is edited by Doug Breithaupt, who's toy car collection (visit the Toy Room) is featured on the minicars.htm portion of this site (additions to the collection since 2000 are featured in 'Expanding the Collection' in each issue. The purpose of this effort is to create a forum to share a common interest in toy cars, with special attention to 1:64 scale). Back issues are also availble for review from the bottom of this page. We have a link to our new Forum partner. If you are wondering what's missing from the collection, visit the 'Seeking' list. A list of toy cars for sale or trade is on the Sale/Trade page. You can visit our newest Sponsor. Comments and contributions from readers are welcome via e-mail.
