    Ok ok more like a junk drawer in a basement.

    Iv been working at a house that’s being remodeled, owner said that everything in the basement is junk and has to go. I was sifting thru an old junk drawer full of hinges, nails, door knobs and other junk..this little guy was found on the bottom, it was like my miniature barn find!
    Lots of detail for something that’s only like an inch and a half long.

    LOVE to find cast cars, especially a racecar. Spelled backwards is still racecar.

    I had ducts cleaned and the guy snagged an old tin and plastic truck a young kid tossed down the pipe. Value $7.50 at least you got a Hamb friendly one...;)

    Bet a new battery and some fresh gas will get it running again.

    I have a couple, but I need to find the drivers. We could have a "Mini Indy". You just never know what's at the bottom of the pile until you look!!
