Pyro Army Ambulance Truck OD HP

I managed to latch on to yet another Pyro Army vehicle to go with the rest of the series posted here on the blog. Most people have called this an ambulance while others refer to it as a Red Cross truck. I s'pose either iis correct depending on how you'd like to use it. It measures 5 3/8" (13.65cm) L x 2 1/8" (5.39cm) W x 2 1/2" (6.35cm) H. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

Ertl 1/43 Scale Diecast 1930 Chevy Staketruck W.J. Kennedy Dairy Co

My 'diecast years' - basically the '90s - were spent gathering up a plethora of representative vehicles from a wide variety of era's. I mostly loved the oldtimers ('20s & '30) and the '50s. Not so much the '40s or '60s-'90-s although I did end up with some vehicles from those periods as well. This 1930 stakebud truck lettered for the J.W. Kennedy Dairy Co. fit right in with my collecting interests. I believe it originally came with a load of crates or something but-  if I'm not mistaken - I bought this loose (without box) at a local train meet and any load that may have come with it was not present. It measures 4 5/8" (11.74cm) L x 2 1/8" (5.39cm) W x 1 3/8" (3.49cm) H. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

Matchbox / Dinky 1/43 Scale Diecast 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback 2x2

Today we have a 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback 2x2 from Matchbox / Dinky from 1990 in 1/43 scale. This was one of those 'what was I thinking?' buys. I love the 1965 1/2-'66'-67 Mustang body style, hardtop as well as covertible, but I was never a big fan of the fastback look - at least not for this particular auto. Anywho, this is one of the cars I pulled that's goin' on the chopping block in my feeble attempt at paring down the collection. It measures 4 1/8" (10.47cm) L x 1 5/8" (4.12cm) W x 1 1/8" (2.85cm)H.
