Nice! I always get excited when I watch Pawn Stars or American Pickers and some cool vintage toys show up!

I remember a nice Matchbox collection on the former. Too bad both are kind of set-up - I have no doubt the locations on "Pickers" are "salted" as those in the trade would call it.

That's a pretty spectacular item - worth good money. Joustra is a French maker that was in business for decades.

Lego Volkswagen T1 Camper Van.
The BBC notes that "Like most VW vans of its vintage, it does not operate under its own power."

I was at our local Lego store recently with my son and saw it for sale. Quite cool of a model but I think it's priced at over $100.
We ended up buying some other sets which I promptly built and played with as my son is only 3.5 years old. He likes Legos too but he's too young to build off instructions, so I get to have the fun of building stuff and reliving my childhood.
Actually most of the Legos we have are my sets I saved from the 80s when I was playing with them. I get to relive my childhood!

I get to relive my childhood!
That is one of the greatest blessings about having a son- building Aurora monster kits and Monogram hot rods, collecting die casts, watching old science fiction movies, going to the Indy 500... My wife said I have never had a second childhood because I never grew out of my first one...

I wish I had my old Legos, especially some of the general town sets, and the Technic go-kart. Alas, I have a younger brother, so they are pretty much all gone now. MIB 80s Lego sets are big collectibles now, so I won't be spending the fortune to get them back. I do get to indulge my toy car desires now and then anyway.
