The Vintage Garage ! C.A.R.S.

Post by enzoferrari » Sun Nov 09, 2014 3:58 pm

Hello everyone,
Decided to start a thread to share my vintage diecast collection, which is just beginning and is
very small. Back in the late 60's my Dad was editor of a publication / newsletter called "C.A.R.S." or
Collectors Automotive Replica Society, out of California. So it was only a matter of time before the vintage diecast
bug bit me. I started a little blog website to bring the memory of the newsletter back to life and also share my collection.

My First Dinky model that has its original box - # 524 Renault Dauphine. 1960-62.

In future all my vintage 1/43 diecast will be put under this thread. Cheers ! Felix

Lovely Dauphine, I have a soft spot for that car. Like your diorama a lot too!

It really is nice to see these. Just think of all the car enthusiasts who had their passion launched by models just like this.
