  3. That's a cool find. I also like the old tin Hot Rod toys. They made a lot of different ones. Here's a few of mine. But lets see some more!:) Ron.... 500.jpg

    got 3 Marx Hot Rods. the red one and the yellow one had a flint inside like a lighter and the red plastic motor sparkled when you pushed it down the floor. the blue one never had that feature..
    the ones below that are about 3" long.

    I had to beg a bit for this one a few years ago but my son came through. The scallop decals got pealed off right away and I still get it out and run it once in a while. 003.jpg
     
  22. This was my first HOT ROD. I got it for Christmas back in the 60's.{ The black one that is.} 649.jpg 651.jpg I painted it probably a haft a dozen times. Played with, and changed the motor too.:rolleyes: I found the red one at a swap meet years ago. That's what it would have looked like under the Christmas tree. It's made by the MARX toy company. It was my Best Christmas EVER! :) Ron.....
     
  23. I think giving toy hot rods to little kids will keep the tradition going. Great thread @CadMad

    My 5 year old found this at Pomona swap for 2 bucks. He talked the guy down to 50 cents.
    Not sure how old, but I like it.[​IMG]

    Does that RPU have a spark generator in the clear red engine block?
