Find a little car collectible of your own at W.D. Pickers Antique Mall in Platte City
Naturally, the old car radar doesn’t shut down at someplace like an antique mall. There could be a stack of Picassos, but if they had an old toy poking out from behind one of them, I wouldn’t see the paintings at all. When it comes to antiquing, I have perfect automotive tunnel vision.
Of course, all I saw was the car stuff. Like most antique malls, there were a lot of old steel trucks. Those old things from Tonka, Buddy L, Marx, Wyandotte, Structo, and Smith-Miller were built tough, so many still exist. Plus, they still tend to bring good money, especially the more unusual examples in good condition. They’ll always be a favorite of antique dealers.
