I believe you make reference to Corgi Toys, number 261. Yep. Kept that one too!



Man, could imagine that being put on the market today?

-I would be sold in a "blister pack", instead of nice box that would last decades.
-It would probably have to retail for thirty dollars or more.
-Made in China? You betcha! After all, where else could we possibly manufacture toys?
-And of course, the requisite choking hazard warning.

Sorry, rant not intended. Please return to regular programming.
