I second that. Indeed there was a bar of Nestle Milkybar slab type chocolate among others.
BTW here are the pics of the Nestle truck along with the pics of Leo ones. Both of them are in need of restoration.

All three 1:43 scale models are well detailed, especially the race livery draped Mercedes Benz CLK DTM and the Mercedes G55 SWB.

Hey Neil,

Here are some more images of the BMW M3 Convertible that has a unique three piece foldable hard top. I had posted images of this car in the past.

Thanks a lot Amar, that made my day!

My resolution to not pick up any more cars for the next few months has been broken. Again. All thanks to DCM. Found a Fiat Punto Evo (had to order it) and added the Fiat 500 (2008) and Reventon as well. Will start uploading pictures of my collection soon.
