Matchbox Vintage Pack of 5

This is one of the Matchbox pack of 5 assortment I got for myself. Initially bought for the reason VW Transporter and Austin Mini Van.

After some reasearched, they are actually selected for reasons.

VW Transporter
Model from Volswagen Type-1, called the Microbus or Splittie among modern fans, was produced from March 8, 1950 through the end of the 1967 model year. This is the predecessor model for the famous T2 Bus.

Austin Mini Van 1965
Widely used by Great Britian for delivery in the 60s and 70s. The vehicle is in some ways considered the British equivalent to its German contemporary, the Volkswagen Beetle, which enjoyed similar popularity in North America. In 1999 the Mini was voted the second most influential car of the 20th Century.

1961 Jaguar E-Type Coupe
Manufactured between 1961 and 1974. Its combination of good looks, high performance, and competitive pricing resulted in a great success for Jaguar, with more than 70,000 E-Types being sold over its lifespan, and became an icon of 1960s motoring.

In March 2008, the Jaguar E-Type ranked first in Daily Telegraph list of the "100 most beautiful cars" of all time.

1969 Chevrolet Camaro
This is the last model of the 1st generation Camaros, it was the higest units sold for its generation. The 2nd generation was introduced in February 26, 1970. But the production total wasn't exceeded until 1978.
