Title: Vw Toys
Post by: silas on January 10, 2004, 11:42:34 AM
here are some pics of some toys, cards and stuff that i have aquired over the years. i'm not a huge collector, but when friends and family know you're a vw nut, they tend to give vw related toys and such.

lets see everyone else's collections!!

thanks shawn.

the pipe is strictly for tobacco use only. (heh heh). i bought it at a shop on haight street in san fransisco, close to the infamous intersection of haight & ashbury. the store also had a bug parked out front that was a rolling advertisement for their store, painted in a rainbow of psycadelic colours with 60's graphics.

anyone else with cool vw related toys? come on now people, we're all kids at heart, i know you got some!!

matt,

the matchbox in your first pic, back row, second from right is the same as the car in my second pic, front row, second from right.

black vw w/ dark brown top and dual white racing stripes. the body lifts up and is supported by a red bar to reveal a huge chromed v-8.

i've had this car since i was a wee lad.

I also had one of those when I was a youngan,  all those in the pictures except the bugs bunny buggy, are more recent aquisitions. I have no cars left from my huge hotwheels collection when I was a kid, they all met with the same fate.....sandbox.

You know there is a lot of stuff on ebay, some of it is such crap but other stuff I am amazed by. You all have nice collections, I was at guildford VW one day and they have some nice stuff there, but the parts guy has a whole bunch of vintage models, some are covered in dust in a box. Dont go on weekends that guy said there was nothing but weeks before the weekday guy had tonnes of stuff there. :rockon:

James did you build that model? Thats got to be a rare find.

Nope still in the box - the person I bought it from put a couple motor pieces together thats it.
It let's you choose between split/oval window and comes with the option of a rag top or not.
