Just picked up at Walmart the 2021 MATCHBOX Blue Highways II set. Five great cars of which I actually collect three.

The highlight for me is a new dark blue for the 1956 Jaguar XK140 Roadster.

Back to plastic copies of Lesney/Matchbox Jaguars, BLUE BOX of Hong Kong starting in the 1960 made rather good plastic copies.

Here is the No.105, later 7421 Jaguar Coupe. A copy of the Matchbox No.32A Jaguar XK140 Coupe.

These models are new to me.  Back in 1960 I bought a HO scale train set and started looking for some cars and trucks to go with it.  That is when I started buying some Lesney/Matchbox models.  I do not remember Blue-Box and wonder if they were sold in US.

SONBI in China produced a Jaguar E-Type Coupe in the late 1960s and 1970s. This was a different casting than any others that I have seen in 1/54 scale. This looks like a miniature of the larger DINKY TOYs of the period with rear view mirrors on the fenders. I have this in two colours. The yellow one is cruder.

Another plastic Hong Kong Jaguar E-Type Coupe from the 1960s.

This one has a white plastic driver, no window glass and appears to be from IHK with the #4 on the base. Again 1/64 scale.

More Welly Jaguars, this time from Australia. These short card bubble pack models were sold in 2016. The card says 1/60- 1/64 but appear slightly larger than 1/64.

First is the Jaguar XK8 Convertible..

Though I do not have any pictures of 1/64 scale Jaguar models to share, I saw a real E-Type coupe for sale at a local dealer, Motorwerks of Barrington.  Two days ago it was nice and sunny and they had it outside.  Enjoy the photos.

In 2020 HotWheels put out a Premium set with a Jaguar Lightweight E-Type along with a Porsche 917KH and a Mercedes-Benzes 300SL Gullwing.

Along with these was a Carry-On Truck.

When I look at the photos of your Jaguar and Matchbox/Lesney models, there is something I would like to know.  Like many of the other collectors in these forums, you started collecting years, more likely decades ago. However, unlike many others (such as myself), you kept a large number of your models.  What made or inspired you to keep so many of them rather than get rid of them?

Hi Ed,

I have sold and swapped a large number of models over the years though I have also collected and kept a significant number.

My collecting started early in Britain. My family, particularly on my mother's side was quite wealthy. Picture Rolls-Royce, Daimler, Rover and Jaguar as the cars driven by them in my youth. My grandparents visited regularly and brought new Dinky Toys with each visit for me and my two younger brothers. I still have some of these and extended the collection over the years. I had Hornby-Dublo trains, (00 gauge similar to HO) as an older child and added Lesney/Matchbox and Husky cars to my layout. This got me into smaller scales.

I came to Canada with my family as a 12 tear old bringing most of my collection and my interests with me.  When I got married and started working, I had the house and income to add to my collections which were refining as a I grew.

In 1974 I joined the Canadian Toy Collectors Society in Toronto which consisted of like minded collectors including John Hall who started Brooklin. We met monthly and swapped models and held two annual toy shows. Collecting expanded from there.  I sold surplus toys to my collection at club meetings and toy shows and bought anything that interested me. Jaguar collecting really took hold in the early 1970s although I already had quite a few.  I also got into European sports and race cars at this time. I got rid of most of my American cars concentrating on primarily British cars. I never collected bus or transportation models other than race transporters.

Anyway Ed, I could write a book, but I'll stop now.

Thank you for that explanation. I now understand why you have such a large and diverse collection, and why you are so knowledgeable about these models.

This set of Jaguars looks great.  I like the packaging, since it appears to be wall mountable like a picture.  I am not familiar with AutoBarn.  Did you buy it dirrectly from them?
