I think that truck cab matches up nicely to the old transporter trailer. Not many folks like the concept cab-under that was used for that trailer anyway. I like the Hongwell Mercedes-Benz car transporter.

Nice batch of finds! "Front row: Unknown McD's," first pic second post, white car with red glazing I believe is a Mitsubishi Eclipse. I just found one of those a couple months ago and brought it home, not a bad casting for a McD's issue. Would love to see closer shots of the Siku Lambo Espadas. I agree the Welly Mustang is well done, I've had one in the box since new from around the year 2005 +/-. Ordinarily Welly are not common here, but it was in a grocery store and I happened to see it...haven't seen another Welly for sale locally since.

I was thinking that the white McD's car was Eclipse, but i could not find normal version of it in the lineup, only tooned.

You ask and i deliver. Espadas on their playworn glory.

There one difference between these two. Blue version has red steering wheel and mint green has black one.

Hongwell does surpringly accurate models, but their scale is always weird and i have not found any Hongwell that didnt have some part missing, before this Mercedes-Benz.

I dont know who made the Pirates of the Caribbean cars. There is only Disney on their base. I have few of those and they are fugly. I guess the cars are characters from the movie "Dead man's chest".

MMP is Miniature Model Planning Limited (MMP Ltd.). MMP is the maker of EBBRO models.

I don't know Porsches, but I did collect Ebbro many years ago.

Looks like the same car here - Porsche 908 Short tail Nurburgring 1968

My work moved to a new place for few weeks, so i had to go check self service flea markets from that area. Google showed five locations, one was not open on tuesdays, other was closed for two months, third was antique store. Two others were thrift store/dollarstore/ self service flea market hybrid and dollarstore/ self service flea market combination.

First of those two had some new Yat mings on their selection, but nothing that got my attention.

Got few bags of cars.
Posted Image

On the front:
Majorette Golf IV GTI, Majorette BMW Z3 coupe, Maisto Peugeot 309, Majorette Pontiac Trans Sport, Siku Mercedes-Benz 300SL and Hot wheels Escort rally.
Second row:
Matchbox Opel Frontera/Isuzu Rodeo, Majorette roadroller,Yat ming Chevrolet Corvette, Majorette Porsche Boxter and Majorette Ford model A.
Third row:
Two generic Hot wheels, Yat ming? Farm tractor, Bburago Alfa Romeo 156 and Hongwell Mercedes ML. Behind those are some very low quality chinese fantasy cars.
Only first two rows i keep, rest can go.

I was tempted to buy bag that had Husky Volkswagen pickup but sadly it was the only thing interesting in that bag and i considered 4 euros too much for just Vw missing some of its parts.

Second flea market was half empty and i did not find anything with reasonable price.

Mailman had dropped package in my mailbox.
Posted Image

Pack of eight cars from auction.
On the front row:
Hot wheels Morris Mini, Hot wheels Toyota AE-86 Corolla, Hot wheels Ferrari P4 and Matchbox Ford LTD.
Second row:
Summer Volvo 164, Hot wheels '69 Ford Mustang Boss 302, Hot wheels 1967 Camaro and Matchbox Lincoln Continental.

Went to get a desk for my wife from another town and had to stop by at one self service flea market. Found lots of bags but prices of those were ridiculous and i didn't buy none.

Found also this.
Posted Image
These are still on pegs but this had only 1 euro price tag so i took it.

This is something i dont remember seeing before in any flea market.

Britains New Holland hay baler.
Some parts are missing.

Went to a flea market today but found nothing. Checked also some self service flea markets.
Posted Image
This is what came home with me.
On the front:
Matchbox Volvo 760, Matchbox Fisker Karma, Majorette Renault Twingo and Majorette Ferrari Testarossa
Middle row:
Maisto Suzuki Sj430, Bburago Mercedes-Benz 300SL and Bburago Renault Clio.
Back row:
Unknown Nestle toy, Welly Vw beetle, Jakks GX racer and unknown farm tractor.

Looks like Jose was the previous owner of the Twingo. Also i thought that Testarossa was a Novacar before talon it out of the bag.
Back row is not going to stay on my collection.

Looks like cool lot, who's on top of the Volvo?

I'd probably be interested in that Welly VW if you weren't international.
