This book is a general collector's guide to classic Tinplate toy cars from the 50's and 60's made in Japan. It covers cars from a classic era of tinplate toy cars and covers all the major companies and countries they were sold in. The book shows the most known and collectables of the time period. The book has great pictures and lots of detailed information. This book brought lots of memories back to me as a kid getting a few of the cars shown in the book as birthday and or Christmas gifts from my family. The book may have a limited audience but I for one loved it!

I recommend this book to everyone with an interest in tinplate cars from Japan and also all those who, like me, was a kid during the 50's or 60's.

Thanks to Veloce Publishing for providing this book to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it for them.
