Toy Cars : Matchbox

Speaking of James Bond 007 a few days ago in relation
to the world's smallest camcorder got me surfing for the
Bond cars like the Aston Martin in 'Goldfinger',

the E-Type Jaguar

and the Rolls Royce Silver Shadow

Why ? Because I worked for Lesney Products USA in
Moonachie, New Jersey in the late '70s when their line of
Matchbox Toys was at the height of its popularity. The most
memorable part of my employment for Matchbox has to be
the free toys that we were allowed to help ourselves to for
giving away as Birthday, Christmas and other gifts. I amassed
a large and enviable collection of superb VWs, Jaguars,
T-Birds, etc. in the two years I was there and only recently
parted with the last of them, turning them over to my niece's
son. While surfing for Matchbox cars I discovered a whole world
of toy car collectibles and enthusiasts and signed a Guestbook
of a Pakistani enthusiast.
