    Those traffic jams, geez!!! Carabo, two Miuras and a Grifo queueing in for a Lego car wash. Margo taking the kids to kindergarten with a Marzal, a Monteverdi Hai and a futuristic Dodge Charger Mk 3 concept racing throught the yellow loop again - poor sheriff sitting in that Galaxie 500 patrol car...

    Thanks Dave. I just had another look myself and realise that at that time, Lesney did a range of Matchbox trailers. There were a few different variations, so I guess you could hook up whatever you like. That said...

    ...John - the Ferrari and the Honda trailer appear to have been sold as separate units. Do you remember getting them as a set somehow?

    Ed, I got the Lusso separately. I got it at the same time as a reddish Jaguar E-Type and a white Ford Mustang fastback. The Mustang had a little lever in the rocker panel and your thumb could swivel the front wheels left to right. The Honda GP bike and trailer came later. I don't remember the dates, but I do remember that I was old enough to be embarrassed about playing with toy cars, so I'd wait till everyone left the house and then I would bring out a box full of them and have a grand old time.
