This thread caused me to go off on a serious nostalgia curve onto ebay last night looking at the 6-7 Corgi models I used to have. Even looking at the premium prices they arent far off the prices we have no come to expect to pay for our MC, Spark, Neo 1:43 models...

I still have one but it is a respray and chipped.

I love your Spot On model, its body is one of my favourite H.J. Mulliner designs on Bentley chassis! I've tried to get one of those models at eBay, but they are always very expensive! :(
Yes original Spot On seems to be still holding a premium. Hope Someone brings out a version soon.

I know, seems that Bentley still attracts good prices.

Have been looking at Corgi: Rover 2000TC with GoldenJacks, Marcos (ditto), Red/White Ambulance (with lights) and Buick Riviera ideally with Dolphin Cruiser set. There was a Dinky truck as well but cant recall the name - it was red cab with gret flatbed and grey container on it with a sliding door and hook point in the top - I think it was a French truck - ah yes Berliet

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

That Continental S2 is absolutely gorgeous. I like the old Bentleys much, much better than the new ones.
