These are some of the Matchbox models my father bought himself pretending to everyone it was for me. We had a great collection with over 40 cars, all in their original boxes, mainly from the 70’s collection. I wish I still had some of them but after he passed away my brother and I manage to wreck and ruin the collection. We were kids, I don’t regret.  But having those cars were the kick start of my collector soul, showing me limited editions for the first time, the value of the original package, things like that, that I carry until this day.

I remember vividly playing with these particular vehicles. The yellow jacklift would fit the holes on the ‘Sea Land’ truck and lift its container. The cattle truck was a must – that and a pick-up with a lion that would turn inside its cage everytime the wheels moved.
