I'm looking for O scale Vehicles to populate my On30 layout, which I am considering building. It will be a steam era layout based on the early 1930s, so I am looking for O scale Model "Ts" and Model "A" and early 1930s type cars. Not beholding to Ford, will even consider Chevys!

I found a lot of the diecasts (affordable, at least) are in 1/43 scale. Close enough for me, modeling On30.

And not showing the model year? Again, I fudge a bit. Sometimes vehicle details can backdate a model to an earlier year.

Here's where I got some of mine: Direct Diecast, Inc.

Direct Diecast has prices that scare me off. I'm much happier if it is a kit needing building, not a completed car.
