Filling gaps
on: June 7, 2013, 07:04

Whilst I'm always interested in buying spot-on cars in any condition (I enjoy rebuilding them), If anyone can help with filling some of the gaps in my collection I'd be happy to discuss purchase……


I don't rebuild to sell, in fact I've never sold one, but I have given a few away, (to owners of the full sized versions, through the classic car fraternity)…….


The only models I don't at present have at least one example of are:

116 Caterpillar Bulldozer

137 Massey Harris Tractor

207 Wadham Ambulance

308 Land Rover and Trailer

316 Land Rover Fire Department

404 Minivan

405 Vauxhall Cresta BEA

418 Land Rover and Missile Carrier


Plus odd variations of all the trucks, though I do have a fair few…


So you can see I have quite a large collection………


I'm not into the "Mint and Boxed" thing so am not at all bothered about boxes/condition, after all, I drive a 38 year old car, which I've had since it was 4 years old, and the fact it was repainted (back in 1990) and has had countless nips and tweaks over the last 34 years (and over half a million miles) in no way affects either it's value (to me) or my enjoyment of it!!!


I can be contacted through here, or via e-mail: john@atodini.co.uk

Not much to tell really, Born in East London in 1951, I’m nowadays based in Bedfordshire, in a village near Leighton Buzzard. I collect Spot-On die-cast vehicles and also have a large Minic Motorway collection, based around an extended, rare 5-lane race layout, Much of the collection is left over from my youth in the 1950’s/1960’s…… This came to light following the death of my mother over 20 years ago – she had kept all my childhood toys after I married and left home in 1974!! Now semi-retired I’ve been slowly filling gaps in both collections (but mainly the Spot-On). I also have a classic car, a bright tangerine Reliant Kitten (4 wheels! – which, when I bought it in 1979, was a 4-year old second-hand one)!! I’m very active in a few classic car clubs and forums and “moderate” on the Reliant World forum. Additionally I have a Morini Strada motorcycle but am looking to change this later in the year…… John
