I recently got a Matchbox '40 Ford pickup that had long avoided my clutches.  If Matchbox had made a '40 Chevy pickup, or any Chevy pickup back to 1930, l would be hunting them...they did make a 1941, which l bet is common on steam/diesel transmission layouts.  I mentioned elsewhere on here that Brooklin has offered a '34 Chevy.  I hope they do a series of Chevies, like their Buick series, which have shown up discounted. I need to post a photo of pickups, which include some bashed ones, such as Hallmark, but right scale.  (uh, if you accept 1/43)

??Another one of THOSE!!??  What you want to sell is not what I want to buy!

Yes!! By all means post those pic of your 1/43 scale vehicles. Have you tried neo or white box? Seems like there’s a explosion of 1/43 vehicles now, and thanks for posting

Very nice 

I live in the country on 5  acres and I told my self I had to put a farm scene somewhere on my layout . I see you used some Ertl buildings I have the same ones and they blend in nice. The service station looks awesome I guess one of my favorites is your Diamond T with the load of Christmas Trees. Thank you posting.

Here’s some Pete’s I was working on this summer these will be “shelf queens” when finished. I painted the New Ray cattle trailer white and hooked it to one of those Pete’s I’m working on and I also put a New Ray Iron Nose peterbilt on a AMT Peterbilt frame and gave it some upgrades enjoy the pics

The cars are nice but I'm more fascinated by the box which went through the Sverdlovsk District of the Russian Post Office!!!
