Recommended Posts

Bob, remember when guys use to pay a premium to get them?  You could sell your truck at the show for more than you paid for it.  Sadly, they are now worth very little.  See them on eBay all the time.  I have quite a few myself.  Good luck!

Good times years ago when they were given out for judging, I just kept them in a box, never on display. Hope someone will find an interest in them. Bob

Sadly, like almost everything, the things that at one time we thought to be a "collectable", just don't mean anything to most people. I see them on E-Bay and see them on some tables at HERSHEY for as little as $10. Give them to the grandkids or neighbors kids and watch the enjoyment they get from playing with them. My wife called them the "dust collectors".

Waiting up Sunday night for my father to get home from Hershey with new treasures each year was right up there with Christmas for me as a kid.  The unveiling of the annual Hershey Winross was tradition and always pretty exciting (except for that year they were pink..) It would be displayed prominently somewhere for about a week before it would get packed away and relegated to the dark recesses of the attic. What a silly waste of money but boy I couldn't wait to get my hot little hands on it each year-it was a pretty cool little model at the time.

Great memories md murray, young car memories are the best. Still have the Highway Pioneers Dad built and displayed on the livingroom picture window sill.

Good idea!  A child with a toy truck and a pile of 

sand will have more fun in 30 minutes than you had

in 30 years of storing them!

WINDROSS  may look good, but grand son #2 likes ones he can use. Bob

The Windross trucks look to be nice quality with decent detail.

Too bad I didn't know how cheap they were when my kid was younger.

I would have picked up a bunch for playtime.
