heres my three lesneys found so far. only two by my. The first is a No.20 Chevrolet Impala Taxi 1965+, found and kindly donated to Buttsy's Wreaking Yard by DevilDave ;), The second is a No. 50 John Deere Tractor 1964+ and the last No. 40 Hay Trailer 1967+ found at Smurfs Biggerden Adventure.

What colour are the wheels on the taxi?
  If you find one of these taxis with grey plastic wheels ,in this condition will bring you at least $200 .
