  2. I'd post it, but naked double-d cups might offend some people.

    I got a couple little toys kickin' around that I can take some pics of - what's incredible is how much money some of these things can go for. I was holding a little tin roadster in my hand at an antique store and almost dropped it when the proprietor told me how much he wanted for it.

    I particularly like the big sedan in the back. Its made of some strange hard resin rubber material - and some little boy "customized" it long ago with little push pin antennas and hood ornaments and exhaust and running lights.

    There is an antique mall on the way to Branson in Ozark that used to have a huge amount of vintage car and hot rod metal toys. I used to check them out and drool quite a bit but the price some of these had on them were just crazy! Never did buy any just looked but there wer a bunch of them I wanted, but as is life, no money back then to buy them:(

    This could be the root of my obsession. I was heart broken when the right front axle broke when it hit the door jam in mid flight over the jump. That was about 60 years ago. It took me 50 years to find this replacement.

    I have a few scattered around the office and shop but there are a few of you that NEED serious counciling about your obsessive behavior. Of course I mean that in the very nicest way.:cool::D

    Here's some of my stuff.

    Not a hot rod, but my first favorite was a Schuco wind up sportscar.(mine was green).
    Then I had a nifty tin woody.
    Later I got a keen plastic gas station with working lift for my Matchbox cars.
    My brother had a cool blue plastic (I think it was a) Buick XP300 with headlights that lit up.(anybody got a picture of one?)
    Later we had some cool dealer promo models which we nosed and decked with an X-acto knife and sandpaper, and lowered by pushing the tin bottom in.
    Then we got into put-together model car kits which we customized and later blew up.

    Here's one I made for my son's first Christmas! (he is now three) The body is solid mahogany, the wheels are teak and the round inlays are tulip wood. I kept the car simple and strong for "toddler abuse". For his second Christmas I made the dual-cockpit runabout. This year I'm making a trailer for the roadster to pull the boat!
