    That’s really fun to watch that! 1983 wow. I wasn’t even alive then (well, OK, that’s a bit of a lie. I actually was… but living in the southern US where there were no toy fairs at all.) In any case, I would take that first one – without tires (tyres) in a flash! A fairly-rare white Corgi Rover – we actually have it here: https://www.hobbydb.com/marketplaces/hobbydb/catalog_items/rover-2000tc-f0040a76-f271-465f-8f06-8f70e9d288a6

    Wow, I think I was there! If i recall correctly, this was my first show of this sort and I was amazed. Can’t recall if I bought anything, but probably did! Thanks for sharing that! John
