I'LL BE POLISHING MY TOY ROLLS ROYCE

Parked beside my Project SWORD Scout 1 or Billy Blastoff Scuba car you would have found a prestige toy car back in the Sixties. I loved prestige cars like Rolls Royce, Daimler, Bentley, Mercedes and the American Lincoln and Cadillac.


It didn't really matter whether they were plastic or die-cast, large or small. My garage accepted them all! Two of my favourites were:

Vectis

The simply beautiful Dinky Cadillac Eldorado and Rolls Royce Silver Shadow.


Did you have any toy prestige cars? Or do you have a real one perhaps?

  1. Other end of the scale really, my first car was a Hillman Imp! I don't have it anymore, but I still have the Corgi version!
