Hit my first toy fair today. There were about 15 tables or so. The main things were Transformers, Star Wars, GI Joe, and Hot Wheels. There were other action figures of various kinds and other random toys. Will head off to look these up after posting since I bought stuff I thought was cool, not 'resellable'.

I'm guessing the Fiat is some toy show or HW.com car? It is numbered and has no UPC on the back, as well as RRs. Wish the guy had still had a 510 in the BRE livery to match the truck, but it is still cool in the metallic red. The mini actually came from a normal vendor in the flea market booths where this meet was held.



Corgi Ford Capri Fire Chief car. Majorette copper 911. Tomica Maserati Merak SS. Zylmex Chevy panel van. The wheels are beat to snot, but the body is decent and the tailgate is intact. I've had a white Matchbox Hellraiser since I was a kid and it was one of my favorites. Now it has a blue one to keep it company. Red Vette Van to go with my black and Iron Man ones. Unfortunately the motorcycles have been ripped from the Rampage, but I didn't have one of these yet. I have several examples of the split window HW Corvette already, but this one has extra paint details and some nice co-molded wheels on it.

Nice! What's the orange panel bottom pic????
It is a Zylmex/Zee Chevy Panel Van. It is marked as 'Ambulance' on the bottom as the casting was originally part of a lot of M*A*S*H licensed toys.

My panel van has black bumpers, but Baskingshark posted his cleaner chrome bumpered example here.

Indeed. I got some cool stuff, but the van was a nice uncommon find. It's too bad the driver side wheels are toast, but perhaps it will get some new shoes at some point.

A few more pictures of it. It's a minor detail, but the holes in the grill actually go through. Hard to see on mine since the grill it black, but you can see it in the MASH one.
