Does anybody else collect old toys. I collect old Tonka, structo, nylint, etc. trucks, and cars.  I guess im to old for this but I just cant resist when I see one at a tractor show or swap meet. I'm  including a few pictures of just a few of the trucks. I'm just starting so I don't have many yet.

I do the same thing when I can buy them right.  Then after a while I get tired of them  and put them on Ebay and sell them for a nice profit.

I have too many collections Bob. I have about 30 pieces of the older Tonka construction trucks, just about 2,500 pieces of the farm tractor toys and implements, right around 3,000 pieces of Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars, about 35 plastic car model kits, I think I'm around 45 pieces of HESS trucks, pretty close to 200 marbles, and around 40 old comic books.

 

I'm sorry, what was your question again??

 

By the way, I like the bed spread!

I probably have well over 800 1/64 scale models and maybe only about 20 1/16th scale farm toys. I got an easy 1 1/2 drawers worth of literature at or at least sorted. I keep most Tractor Houses and FastLines. A pedal tractor. Not to mention a couple tool boxes of JD and Snap-On tools, several signs and posters.

I've got a bunch of older Tonkas from the 70's not really collecting them, but just have them.

Need to sell thoough since I have no interest in them.

I collect farm toys, particularly Allis-Chalmers (any scale) and JD 1/64th scale.  Though I am not prejudice, I will pick up anything I see when out and about.  After my grandfather passed away, I received a couple of boxes that included some old Tru-Scale farm toys as well as some old Tonka and Ny-Lint toys (a nice Michigan truck crane).

 

It's almost addicting, isn't it!
