Book Description: In the 1960s the production of miniature diecast cars and trucks reached their zenith and in the process opened millions of children's imaginations to the adult worlds of automobiles and car ownership. Fueled by nostalgia, today's flea markets and auction websites abound with thousands of pocket-sized vehicles sporting such brand names as Matchbox, Hot Wheels, and Corgi Junior. Arranged by vehicle types -- sports cars, muscle cars, race cars, trucks, and more -- this color history is filled with specially commissioned studio photography depicting the most significant of these miniatures. Brief histories of the manufacturers appear throughout, accompanied by overviews and descriptions of the individual toy vehicles. A price guide provides reliable market values for the most popular and significant examples.
