The Big Book of Tin Toy Cars. Ron Smith & William C. Gallagher. In two independent, but related volumes this comprehensive and thoroughly enjoyable reference features hundreds of tin toy cars from toy makers around the world. Included are toys from Argentina, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and the United States. The toys represent cars of the 1900s to the 1970s, with a major emphasis on toys produced in Japan during the 1950s and 1960s - the peak period for toy cars made from tin. Each listing contains the make, model, year, body style, size, graphic markings, operation description, producing company, country of origin, trademarks, a scarcity rating, and current values based on condition. Many photos feature the original boxes. A list of the toy companies and their respective marks rounds out this valuable collector's guide. Return to your childhood with this delightful look at colorful toy cars produced in tin! Ron Smith has been collecting Japanese tin toy cars for over thirty years. A lifelong resident of the Cleveland, Ohio area, he is an avid sports fan, bowler, golfer, and toy collector. Bill Gallagher has been involved with antique and collectible toys for over twenty years. He has done extensive research on the history of the Japanese toy industry and has interviewed many toy company executives in Japan. He resides in Chagrin Falls, Ohio.
