You can't tell the men from the boys by the size of their toys after all. The miniature car is one of the most popular and enduring toys, almost as old as the machines that inspired them. Some are veritable miracles of technology in miniature, with functioning headlamps and front-wheel drive; others are lovingly crafted to a fine level of detail, with real leather seats and handpainted finishes. Some rare older models are today literally worth their weight in gold, especially if the packaging is intact. Collectible Miniature Cars is a charming trip through the world of the toy car, featuring over five hundred photographs of cars, trucks, and utility vehicles, both vintage and modern, from all the leading toy car producers, such as Dinky, Marklin, Bing, Schuco and Meccano. The book is divided into themed chapters covering family cars, sport coupes, racing cars, and utility vehicles. Each photograph is accompanied by a brief yet informative text giving the key features of every toy, and the volume is completed by a buyer's guide. This attractively designed book is the perfect choice for all toy car collectors, and those who have never quite forgotten the joy of owning a brand-new, shiny miniature car, and imagining the hours of pleasure it will bring. * Over 500 items reproduced life-sized in color in each title * Features both rare and frequently found models * Includes bibliographies and useful addresses to find out more

BUILD - RACE - WIN - REPEAT...The Rise & Fall of the Golden Years of Slot Car Racing Explained. Text includes articles from the main magazines of the period. Also includes a Worldwide Racing Directory, listing active slot car raceways from different countries in 5 continents...! By 1966, model-car racing was so popular that it threatened to replace bowling as the nation's favorite indoor sport. For as grand as the outcome, the force that propelled slot-car racing into a national pastime was a simple one: the realism of the original slot cars. The builders and racers of these models knew that the quest for speed should not come at the cost of the way a car looked. Their design was at the heart of their very integrity. In this new effort, author, researcher and slot-car racer Carlo Tonalezzi charts the meteoric rise of this hobby-sport and photographs classic model racing cars in their natural habitat: The commercial racing tracks. Models made by Russkit, AMT, COX, MPC, Monogram, and more are captured on vintage tracks from the American Model Car Raceways. These realistic beauties were made during the Golden Years of Model Racing. True pieces of Americana, they are today as magnificent as ever. Read all about what really happened during this exciting period of model racing bliss!
