    I received some old pictures of my grandmother recently, dated 1915, Battle Creek, MI....I noticed at the feet of my grandmother, a vehicle toy, with mice in it, and perhaps nuts in the rear...pull along toy maybe?....I remember my grandmother as a white haired lady of significant age, and seeing her playing with these toys is kind of touching....not sure if they had actual ''hot rod'' toys back in the WWI era, but they ''did'' have vehicle toys....thought it was kinda cool. 020.jpg

    How about a toy custom made from balsa wood that just so happens to look like my 58. 58 ford model 022.JPG :):)

    This year's pinewood derby cars that I built with my boys.
    Both came in 2nd in their respective dens, both will be going to regionals in March.
    The"Vader" car came in second overall, the "Skywalker" car won "best paint"! 0214171656.jpg

    Yes. I believe it was a Cor-Cor dump truck that came to us with no bed or fenders.

    While going through my Photobucket account I ran across this shot showing a few more of my toys.
    One tin import, one vinyl El Camino, two Tootsietoys and one of my faves, the black plastic Thunderbird
    which were made by F&F and included in boxes of Rice Krinkles cereal around 1970 / 71. I have
    a few different ones and I'm thinking that they're all Fords. I'm not sure if other brands were
    offered. Now on cereal boxes kids are fortunate to get nutritional information. What's wrong with
    kids having fun?

  10. quick85, in 1954 you could get a complete hot rod model kit for 50 cents and a Kellogs box top, even came with a tube of glue! This really beat the hell out of some nutritional facts.

  17. That looks more like an elephant in that toy....makes sense since there are nuts in the rear.

    I don't know if this one is old NOS or some sort of repop. there was someone selling a bunch of them in different colors a while back. none of them had wheels.

    playing with toys in the garage today,
    added a roll bar, pipes and paint to an old Nylint to look a little like a certain old hot rod

    'Put together another "phantom" Nylint, pulled the fenders and hacked the hood from a roadster, bent up an engine room floor and firewall, put an engine from a roadster pickup in it and chopped a windshield frame for another version they could have made.

    A couple recent additions to the collection. The Stock Car is a ERTL diecast. The black plastic roadster IMG_2108.JPG IMG_2109.JPG IMG_2110.JPG IMG_2111.JPG IMG_2112.JPG IMG_2113.JPG is Korris Kars and has an electric motor.

    I begged and begged my parents for this for Christmas. It was called Sparkin Hot Rods. It was a slot car set that came with a good in the dark 57 Bel Aire, and 40 deluxe and on the back tires was a little piece of flint. The goal was to get the rear end lose around the corners so the back tires would hot the guard rail and make it spark.
