When I was very tiny I used to love model metal cars. You know, the Corgi, Dinky or Matchbox kinds of things.
I always liked Corgi best. Their quality seemed better and they had some wonderful features that set them apart.
I don’t know what happened to them. Long thrown away, I am sure. No-one at the time thought they would be collectors’ items worth tens of pounds in good condition. But mine were played with, and they certainly never had the box.
