In my make-belief town, cars broke down. Fortunately, everyone had AAA tow coverage and I had three tow trucks on-call.
My favorite of the three was this Matchbox Freightliner.
Here it is towing a temperamental Matchbox Citroen CX.
This Matchbox Foden tilt cab was an odd duck. As its name states, the blue cab tilts forward 90 degrees.

This Matchbox Leyland truck was a mystery to me. I never knew what the two holes on the bed were for. I used to get those toothpicks from club sandwiches with the colorful plastic on one end and stick them in the holes. Kids.
Going back to the unreliable French theme, here is a Matchbox Renault 5 getting a ride to the shop. I understand the scales are way out of proportion, but hey, I was eight!
