Die-cast Lledo No.DG 189006 ERF LV Low Loader and Boat Load-Robert Walker Ltd. Limited Edition. It could be able to use with a replica of the train, scaling “00”.

The origins of ERF in fact stem from Foden: the initials stand for Edwin Richard Foden, who with his son Dennis, and others from Foden, set up their own company in 1933. From the outset this has been a highly successful name in the truck industry. Until 2000 the company was located at Sanbach, but on being taken over by MAN moved to Middlewich. Models exist from many manufactures of ERF trucks of the post-war years up to the present day.

Robert Walker purchased his first truck in the mid 1930's to haul produce from his own and neighbouring market gardens to market.At the end of the Second World War, he diversified into general haulage and the business grew rapidly.Low loaders were added to the fleet in the during the 60's and 70's undertaking many unusual loads one of which was the ill fated 'Bluebird' boat on a countrywide exhibition during 1965.Today the Company is controlled by the third generation of the family and operates a fleet of specialised vehicles.
This die-cast had loaded a boat,the head trailer was painted deep red and alternated pale red, the trailer made of metal painted pale red with boat load, removable tires, clear windows, black interior, with limited edition cerfiticate.

The worldwide sales in excess of 21 million Beetles have given rise, over time, to a multiplicity of body modifications and numerous model variants. How-ever, prominent features such as its rounded shape have been retained. Thus, the year 1970 marked a turning point in Beetle product policy. With the completely redesigned type 1302 (1.2 and 1.3 litre engine) and 1302 S (1.6 litre version) a completely new line was created. The 1971 model has, as standard, the semi-trailing arm rear suspension that became familiar on the automatic version, giving it a technically extravagant chassis. In addition the greater height of the engine required a more marked curve to the bonnet. The new horizontally opposed 1584 cc engine with twin port cylinder head delivers a good 50 bhp, giving the 1302 S tremendous tractive power. The redesigned front conceals a transverse arm and spring strut type suspen-sion. The new front axle with McPherson struts has enabled the boot space to be increased to a proud 260 litres. Another attractive external feature had also appeared: an extra vent behind the rear side window. At 870 kg, the light-weight 1302 S offered a top speed of 130 km/h. Apart from the fact that the 1302 S was the most comfortable Beetle so far, this model was crowned with yet another success: on 17.02.1972 the 15,007,034th Beetle, a 1302 S, rolled off the line. The world record for the best-selling car ever, previously held by the legendary Ford T model, had been broken. See more.


Ertl's Bright Green 1970 Plymouth Superbird first appeared on the market about 2001. At that time, collectors and Superbird enthusiasts rushed to secure one. These cars have been difficult to find since those early days. Ertl's is a superb rendering of this automotive classic. The manufacturer has spared no effort in producing this mighty muscle car replica. The precision interior detailing is surpassed only by Ertl's exacting exterior presentation. The doors open wide, the hood raises over an accurately portrayed Mopar power plant (440 cid), and the steering wheel turns the front wheels (an Ertl trademark). The decals are exact (and properly located) giving the car the feeling of quality. Initial review of the car generates only appreciation for Ertl and its dedication to preserving the Roadrunner Superbird legend. Ertl's Green Superbird has almost doubled in price since its release. (An orange edition was offered after the Green Bird about 2002 and will also increase quickly in value. One hopes Ertl will produce more Superbird colors, how about Chrysler's rare Panther Pink?) In appears certain that this die cast metal car has hitched a ride on the now decade long Superbird craze (all Superbird items are daily and dramatically increasing in value). This car is an excellent investment! This Sublime Lime Superbird is an brilliant gift candidate. Who wouldn't love to own a Superbird!? Get yours soon. (Review by Readalots) Buy it now.


Plymouth Superbird Hard Top. 1:18 scale diecast model car. 12" long x 3.75"W x 3"H die cast car with opening doors/hood/trunk, steerable front wheels, and detailed interior & chassis. Limited edition. Stand on a platform. In 1970 Plymouth introduced the Superbird. It shared many comparisons in design to the Dodge Daytona. The Superbird was based on the Plymouth Road Runner except for the unique airfoil and nose configuration. The rear spoiler on the Superbird was higher and more angled than the Daytona's. The trademark over size rear spoiler was mainly for styling but it did allow better access to the trunk but at speeds under 90 mph, the wing was essentially useless. Since production lasted only one year total build quantities were 1920 cars. The rarest for these birds is the Hemi equipment version as only 93 were built. 1,162 were equipped with the 440 and single four-barrel carburetor. 665 versions were built with the 440 Six Pack. Some of the reasons for the low production figures were the controversial oversized wing and angular nose. Also, the cartoon characters and 'beep-beep' horn were 'love-or-hate'. The Superbirds performance was undisputed and the top speed was without equal. See more.

The company merged with Talbot (and Darracq) in 1920. This was another company which was to be financially rescued by the Rootes Group.

Later the Sunbeam name was again used on its own, even when the Rootes Group became part of Chrysler. The last Sunbeam car appeared in 1976.

This die-cast 1914 Sunbeam Notorcycle & Sidecar was produced 3 models, all of them has a different chromium color. It has a black, light green and dark green seat.
This die-cast is a silver plate motocycle with black seat and side car with green seat, plain wheels.

Auto Art have released futher models of the famous Porsche 917K models from the 1970 and 1971 race seasons. As mentioned previously in Pit Stop, these were available from Universal Hobbies before under the Eagle's Race brand.

These versions, though, include a higher level of finish and accuracy, but they do cost significantly more. The version that I am reviewing this month is the Martini Racing Porsche Austria works entry that took part in the 1970 Kyalamai race in South Africa, driven by Siffert/Ahrens. Finished in the 'psychedelic' style used during this season by this team. For this race the car, carying race number two, ran in yellow and red livery.

As with the former model, this model's nose section is removable showing the radiator and fluid containers sited there. The gull-wing doors each swing upwards to reveal the fully detailed interior with the austere finish of the full-size car. (Reviewed from Model Collector) See more.

"This is a very handsome and useful book, in which all models made by Dinky Toys, even from Hong Kong ,are displayed in color.With exception of the airplanes and some of the extraordinary sets, the models are not photographed in detail. Much information about the models is not given (in my opinion not necessary).

The format of the book is such, that it is very easy to take it with you in your pocket." (Reviewed by Customer) Buy Now.


A new and most informative book for Matchbox collectors by one of America's foremost authorities. Matchbox toys are possibly the most popular collectible in America.

Included is a revised price guide and a list of organized clubs for collectors.

Of course, there are another books from this author that includes mores and better detailed photos, but this is perfect book for the first steps." (Reviewed by Casaza Pablo Ezequiet "book analyst")


This book is an excellent resource for all Johnny Lightning collectors, experienced and novice. It provides much information on the history of JL and many of the nuances of collecting, manufacturing, etc. There are great color photos of many cars. Price ranges are also included as well as how to rate the condition of the cars. The only drawback I can see is there is little to no info on many of the newer cars/sets. The index is also somewhat difficult to follow, especially if you don't know what year the car was manufactured. Perhaps this will be included in the next edition? Overall, I highly recommend this book to anybody interested in Johnny Lightning collecting! (Reviewed by Gerry Bowman) See more.

The DeVille (also De Ville and de Ville) name has been used on many of Cadillac's luxury car models. After the Fleetwood was dropped from the Cadillac lineup the DeVille became the largest Cadillac sedan.The DeVille name was replaced by DTS (DeVille Touring Sedan) for the 2006 model year.

The name "DeVille" ("of the city" or "town" in French) derives its name from its town car body, which featured an open chauffeur's compartment and enclosed passenger compartment. The term "Town Car" was used by Lincoln in 1922 to describe a one-off vehicle built for Henry Ford.

The first Cadillac to bear the name was the 1949 Coupe De Ville, with a 4-door hardtop version appearing in 1956 (a one-off Sedan de Ville was built in 1954). Both cars were based on the Series 62. Beginning in 1965, DeVille denoted Cadillac's mainstream model, falling between the Calais and the Fleetwood.

For 1968, the DeVille gained slight exterior changes to comply with new federal safety and emissions legislation, and as with the rest of the Cadillac line up, a new 472 in³ (7.7 L) V8 engine rated at 375 hp.

In November 1971, a showroom-stock 1971 Coupe DeVille placed third in the annual coast-to-coast Cannonball Run, posting the highest average speed of the event, 84.6 mph (136.2 km/h) (excluding stops) and averaging 8.9 mpg-US (26 L/100 km/10.7 mpg-imp).

DeVilles have always been a notable car throughout history and have been used countless times by politicians, spiritual leaders, and are notable in many movies.

As of 2008, the 1993 Cadillac Fleetwood at the Clinton Presidential Center is the final presidential vehicle to be placed on public display. Plans call for the Secret Service to use future vehicles for security testing that may result in their destruction.

A 2001 Cadillac DeVille limousine was delivered to the Bush Administration and was replaced by the current 2006 Cadillac DTS.

2001 Cadillac Deville Presidential Limousine. 1:24 scale diecast collectible model car. This limo is 11"Lx 3.5"Wx 2.5"H.

The Presidential State Car is the official state car used by the President of the United States. Analogous to the President's use of an airplane designated Air Force One, the automobile—traditionally a limousine—is informally known as "Cadillac One".

Cadillac is a brand of luxury vehicles owned by General Motors. Cadillac vehicles are officially sold in over 50 countries and territories, with the majority sold in the United States and Canada. In the mid-20th century, the name became a synonym for "high quality", used in such phrases as "the Cadillac of watches," referring to a Rolex. Cadillac's current slogan is Life. Liberty. And The Pursuit., in reference to the inalienable rights stressed in the United States Declaration of Independence

This is a very highly detailed 1956 Cadillac Presidential Limo diecast model car 1:24 scale die cast by Yat Ming. Every details are well put together. It has hood opens, trunk opens, all 4 doors open, wheel steer, wheels roll and includes Presidential Flags and door emblems.

When first produced between 1948-1958 the Series I Land Rover was used almost exclusively as a workhorse, a vehicle designed, manufactured and marketed o earn it’s keep. As such it found great popularity in farming, police, fire and other emergency services, the army, recovery services and utility companies such as the Royal Mail and Telecommunication firms but never found any interest outside of these areas. All this changed in the 1980’s and a new level of enthusiasm gained momentum until today when a good Series I is the most desirable of all Land Rover in every facet of motoring.

The Land Rover long wheelbase made an ideal tow vehicle with its 4x4 go anywhere capability and as such as was very popular with all the recovery services of the 1950’s including as seen here, the RAC. Decorated in the livery of the Radio Rescue Fleet this was one of the first RAC vehicles to have and orange beacon and aerial.

This is a real nostalgic delight, a Radio Rescue RAC Land Rover, from back in the days when the RAC vehicles were in blue and didn’t look like a paramedics services. The old fashioned RAC diamond logo is well done – and particularly neat on the front wings. The headboard is a nice touch, and tiny touches like the picked out door handles, miniature Land Rover badges, glazed headlights and sliding windows bar make it a real treat.

Muscle from an Unexpected Source 1970 AMC Rebel ôThe Machineö A One-Year Wonder By 1970 AMC was trying whatever it could to compete with the Big 3 of Ford, GM and Chrysler. After experimenting for a couple of years with muscle cars, they hired Hurst Products to develop what became ôThe Machineö. Part of AMC's mid-sized, mid-priced Rebel line, ôThe Machineö was built for speed. The 340hp. 4-barrel V-8 with a Hurst 4-speed gearbox was lightning quick off the line. Other standard features included high back bucket seats, functional Ram-Air hood scoop and dual exhausts. Precision Engineered to Original Specifications AMC introduced ôThe Machineö at the NHRA 1969 World Championships. Although they played down its speed, it had a lot of engine for a mid-sized car and easily held its own against the bigger name muscle cars of that era. Of the 1936 produced for $3475, the first 1000 were made in this special white with blue and red trim color scheme. After that you could order it in any of the Rebel colors. See more.

The slot cars within are 1:32 scale in size which is approximately about five or six inches in length. They and the other contents enclosed in the collector box are new in the factory original package and have not been professionally graded. The collector box has never been opened and itself is enlosed in a plastic bag taped by the manufacturer; therefore, we are unable to attest to condition of the contents within. We can say that the collector box itself has no visible dents, scars or holes. These electric racing slot cars operate on most readily available 1:32 scale slot car race track systems and are most commonly used on Scalextric 1:32 race tracks in the U.S. Contact your race track manufacturer to confirm this brand of slot car will work with your brand of track. This slot car edition is only available through the hobby market industry. A very nice set. See more.
