We resume trucking down Magazine Street

We never did get to finish our shopping trip to Magazine Street, so let me show you some of the must-have's I found. Like these truck -- how long has it been when you played with a truck made of metal and with a hydraulic lift. Talk about a treasure.

There's more. We'll get back to our Magazine street window tour tomorrow. I promise you the three miles of shops, galleries, boutiques will turn up some real treasures.

These model trucks are great, my son is fascinated by any heavy construction vehicle.

Awesome vintage trucks. I bet they cost a pretty penny. Believe it or not, I would love to have these myself. Wonder what the brand is? Not Tonka, that's for sure.

Honestly, when I was playing with trucks, the Second World War was underway and we were so poor and metal was not available and not much else was either so a truck was made by Jim Shepherd out of a penny match box. Wheels out of sticks sliced thin with a axel made from a nail and not much else. Toys were not possible in those days and while it might seem hard to believe, it was true that the best present I ever got during the war was a nice orange to eat.

These are neat, Steve, but more sophisticated than those I had as a boy. Enjoying your Magazine Street series!
