I'm not sure why I don't have more of these. I love the quality and the weight of them. Once you pick them up you know they are going to last forever..

I love the older Sikus which have those wheels with SIKU written on it! Those full metal cars just are a perfect example of good old German quality!

Yours are in amazing condition!

:wave: Siku models are great to collect especially the older pieces. The bulk of the Siku models in my collection these days are the various emergency vehicles they offer.

New Zealand Police Cars

Fun fact: the VW 1300 in your photo is an edition for the UK market. The 1300's sold there were white, black or red while the standard series available in Germany and the rest of the world were lemon yellow, gold metallic and blue metallic.

The Porsche 917/10 always came with two wheel types but yours is an earlier one. Later they switched from decals to a simpler print.


Need to get to work setting up my little studio and photographing the collection this year but here's an older one with some of the models I really like.

I've been bitten by the Siku bug lately. I.m up to 8 cars. I'm trying to set a limit on my collection to 12 vintage. Too pricey.

Can someone answer: is it "sickoo" or "psychoo"?

If your bronze ? Is for me on tge vw pirsche 914
I dont know thw exact NAME of colour
I have it labeled as carmel puke its a tan carmel with slight green in mix and very light sparkle mf in the mix that one is tge older style wheels , unfornatley for this thread it isnt SIKU its a PLAYART

I now have at least LOOSE
23 , PLUS 1 tootsie like hollow body , 2 tootsie like but with base/interior slightly larger then the single tootsie

There Tan that is the older wheel style


I have around 72 VW PORSCHE 914 placed in jammers but not all are in proper place yet and of course i have lots lots more larger ones too

As a lil lad i hated the 914 NOW I WISH I owned one

I dream I could be a RARE OWNER of the very very rare Porsche 916 ( not to be confused with the porsche 914-6

Stay tuned to see a pictures of JAMMERS from me vw porsche collection

Me jammers are 1 casting or 1 type of car very oraganizrd groups most are in order of release when possible for me , but the playarts siku schuco are not 100% fact order but are grouped semi 1st wheel style , 2nd wheel style etc

I hope to someday have a MINT of that tan caramel puke one i wish all me playarts open was mint but minty's loose sell for $50-125+ i just got 3 minty'z last week 2 old style wheel ,1of 2nd or 3rd style wheel 2nd 3rd look very similar

Here's my collection. The Citroen has the older plastic wheels like the Toronado and Vette. The white Mercedes has an older metal imprinted wheel. Neat.

By the way, I have an extra BMW. I'll let go for $15. If it's important, the Bimmer has a black plastic base.
