  • Meccano
    I had a meccano set when I was very young, 1950s back then it was as popular as what Lego is today, I saw just recently on a program in Australia, were a car enthusiast had built a full size Holden 186 - 6 cylinder car engine with Meccano it was quite a feat, it was featured on a tv show called Classic Resto's presented by Mark Fletcher (Fletch)on our local tv station TVS 44 - Sydney, but this was an amazing thing to see at a car show. the old people still love to dabble with the historic Meccano product.
