grew out of need for both helpful and useful information about collecting gas station toy trucks for beginners and intermediate collectors. Since 1964 when the first Hess toy truck
was released, collecting these toy trucks has been an American pastime and significant part of American cultural. There is no forgetting or mistaking Hess Toy Trucks in particular, every child which received one will have a fond memory of them and in many instances may still have them to this day.
Due to a lack of significant material available outside of corporate websites this site was born. The goal is to really help collectors identify their vehicles with photographs and organize when trucks or related toys were released to help in collecting. There are numerous other related items such as posters, glass cups
, die cast metal cars and trucks as well as a few books on collecting. Many of these toy trucks are either passed down from the previous generation. Other avenues of collecting the vintage models include garage sales, flea markets and auction sites.
This is a great hobby and pastime which can be shared with children and it’s not just for the young, there are many adults who fancy these toys and have incredible collections. The goal of GasStationToyTrucks.com is to aid in better collecting by offered a consolidated place to obtain info, articles, book reviews
, toy guides, and news events related to Gas Station Collectibles known as Petroliana. Please look around and come back often, find great info and maybe the toy truck you’re looking for!
