I picked up these Tootsie Toy Porsches at an antique store in Baltimore. In fact, they’re the first cars I discussed on the podcast, I think. They are so rough and so thoroughly lacking of detail, yet full of character.

The building I used in these photos is very old and is from Argentina. There is a lot of German heritage in Argentina, particularly after the War. This one came with a handwritten note from an Argentinian leader to my father-in-law who was in charge of Embassy security in Central and South America back in the late 1960s. Lots of history abounds here.
