I was 10 in 1966 and it's a year I remember well - not least watching the World Cup final on telly and all the other stuff there was to watch, Lulu, Cilla and Rolf - anyone else remember when Lulu had Hendrix on as a guest? Strange days - but one of the best years ever for Corgi cars - these are all excellent, all of them works of art and engineering excellence.
