| out the back just for fun HILL BROKEN 880 NSW, 2 Toying with Caravans BY ALAN STEVENS Bumper sticker spotted at the Broken Hill National Vintage Caravan Rally Japanese toymaker Modern Toys made vibrant coloured cars and popular trucks from the 1940s through until the 1960s Their friction powered cars had towbars and there were a series of 1950s caravans to match. This particular caravan is not an orginal, but rather a tiny teardrop stamped - Fox Australia, which matches up pretty well. Have you seen a funny sign while roaming Australia?
