No, I didn’t order golf balls...
..or old newspapers..
...or...WHAT? Honestly officer it’s not mine. Oh hang on, it’s just tissue paper! Phew.
OH YES YES!! They’re mine!!
Well I’ll accept the Jeep is probably a truck as UTES!! should really have a bonnet or hood, depending on your planetary location. That is a minor detail anyway. Both of these are from the late 1950’s so they have survived pretty well, plus they don’t build ‘me like they used to. I just love these old casts!
I’ll get some better shots in the near future, most likely involving some ORAT action.
I almost didn’t bid on them as they had gone over what I was comfortable with but rembered some advice on a price estimate from Fintail, with his words in mind I placed a higher bid and won the auction! Thanks for the help there kind sir.
Also thanks to Blue2010SRT for telling me about an excellent site with good info on these vintage Corgi casts.
