Cyrus, is the charger R/T on the Left side of the front row part of the pro Rodz collection? If yes, I've got the same one in golden color.
Will put pix tonight.
the rest look awesome too.

huge mistake made on my part too - all those lovely Made In England by Lesney models that I had when I was small in the 1970's are all vanished. At one time I think I had 180 + little cars - my grandpapa ,my folks and my uncle used to gift them to me then. And there was one shop in New Market in Calcutta in the 70's from where we could get those Matchbox cars too. they used to cost Rs 25 and Rs 27 in those days I still remember clearly.
a great pity that I broke many (largely in my investigative capacity of wishing to know more about the innards of those vehicles, considering one of my main aims in life at that time was to grow up to be a car mechanic) and gave away the remainder - now am trying to slowly re-create those golden years with the newer range. But they will never be the of the same "feel" i know!
Right now waiting for wife to return home from the shops since she is bringing me some little additions to my collection! Shall photograph and share them later this afternoon!
cheers

I'm simply not able to find time to get them out of their packed condition in my loft, compile them, photograph and post them.
Maybe sometime.
But do post your collection whenever..

I picked up the exact same one yesterday. What a coincidence.

Along with the LandCruiser got my hands on a Matchbox 71 VW BayWindow and a Hot Wheels Reventon.

You have to be frequent for exciting arrivals, other shop are landmark and one more is sapphire. Model art does have good ones but then it goes off shelf too quickly. Ask when will fresh lot come and what will be there?
