As a young boy, my parents vacationed often in the Netherlands, where they were born. I always looked forward to going for many reasons:
1. To see my grandparents and Aunt and Uncle
2. To feed my face with Patat, Krokets and Freakadels, Dutch licorice and Tum Tums
3. To check out all the cool cars and trucks that I never got to see in the US
4. To pick up all the cool new Majorettes that I missed from the year(s) before
So I have a real good fondness for these older French classics...and I just love finding these older ones from the 1960s, 70s and 80s in really bad shape so that I can take them and restore them to colors that they were never issued in. I hope that you will enjoy the finished product as much as I loved customizing them.
