Wow! Some amazing old Lionel stuff - especially like the culvert loader station, how ingenious. I think I have all the Dinkies, though not always in the colors shown. The 39E Chrysler Royal sedan, in yellow with red fenders, if authentic, is uber rare and valuable. Karl should check this out since there are a few Teknos and maybe Vilmer trucks. It was common for Lionel dealers to also sell Dinkies, they go hand in hand. And it was an old electric train shop in Nashville where I found the core of my early Dinky collection.

@mg-harv Mom got me some Dinkys and Matchbox at a train shop when we lived in Pittsburgh, PA!  I saw at least 4 Teknos, Harvey!  But I did fast forward through some parts.  That metal pipe/culvert magnet is way cool!  Thanks, Frank, for finding this for us!!!

@mg-harv  Was the quick glimpse of a green T-bird a Tekno?

I saw these 2 Ford V8 trucks - very old!

@karl The T-bird I saw might have been from the Matchbox Dinky series but it passed by quickly. Saw the two trucks and the Porsche but missed the VW van. What's "IPO'd"? Initial Public Offering?
