A Sterling example of an incorrect spelling -

A great picture of a fine early 40's Sterling, pulling a MURPHEY trailer.

Sorry, but I couldn't resist. Love the air conditioning in these old trucks!! Can anyone tell me where this company was from, and what happened to it?

If I Had A Million Dollars -------

Found this "Adult Die-Cast" toy site that makes some really nice "old school" die-cast "toy"
trucks. They specialize in older pre - 60's trucks. As can be seen from the picture above, these "toys" are built like the real deal - they are tough. They are put out by a company called SMITH/MILLER and have been in existence since 1979.

Now, if any readers out there would like to donate one of these fine models to my collection, I wouldn't mind at all!!!

The site deserves checking - better make that a big check!
