Quadricycle the First Ford Car

This little machine was based on a simple chassis with a tool box seat, 4 bicycle wheels and tiller steering. Powered by a two cylinder engine of Henry Fords own design,which produced four horsepower and a speed of 20 miles an hour. No brakes or reverse gears were used on this 1st vehicle. As a matter of fact the first time this little car stopped was because it broke down with an ignition problem. Ford was not to give up over a small problem like that and went on to develop many fine automobiles as we well know

Winners Circle Nascar Diecast

Winners Circle Nascar Diecast is another of my favorite builders of diecast models. Great detail and finish and reasonalbly priced. You can find these diecast model cars in many retail stores and hobby shops but I still find my best buys on ebay. A recent purchase of mine led to meeting another collector near me. I got to see his collection of diecast motorcycles and airplanes, all I could say is WoW. Over 50 great models. The internet has been a great place for me to meet collectors and new customers for my collectibles.
