The Greenbrier was the Corvair sedan's station wagon cousin. That's a Corvair Rampside pickup, often topped by an aftermarket camper top. Chevrolet's would be answer to the VW Beetle pickup. The Chevy 2 vans reused it's headlight surrounds.

My recently finished project. The S13 is 25 years old...that counts as nostalgic right?

Thanks! The make and model is actually unchanged, it was originally a 240sx made by "Johnny Lightning" but was in very rough shape.

Any vintage Japanese tin toy experts ?
I found these 2 Nissan cedric mid 1960's friction toy cars, but have no markings.
Anyone know anything about these ?

Nice find! Tin toys of Japanese cars are HTF in North America (at least in the US). Many were made by Bandai if I recall, but there were numerous other no name brands.... You need to consult with some Japanese collectors for some certain answers... or I'll take them if you want to get rid of them! LOL

BTW - One of the biggest tin toy collectors in Japan is Mr. Teruhisa Kitahara of the Yokohama tin toy museum "Toys Club" http://www.toysclub.co.jp/index.html
