    Testors '57 Chevy fuel powered model owned by my friend. Almost as big of a Tri five goober as me. He has a lot of stuff from his youth. Some kids just weren't destructive like I was.

    Picked up this Buddy L car from a friend at a recent car club flea market. Not in bad shape but was missing a few parts. I fabricated a new windshield and top boot. Checked my spare parts and found a spare tire to hang on the rear. Someone had previously added the red stipes. The rest of the paint and body has a played with look so no repainting is planned.

  9. This one isn't quite HAMB fodder but I thought it was a bit unusual and it was only $5.Made by Eldon in 1968 it is powered by 2 "D" cells(can you even buy D cells anymore?)and is controlled by a hand held device that when the trigger is squeezed uses compressed air to steer the wheels via a long plastic tube.To go forward ,stop,and reverse you squeeze the trigger all the way. Sadly I didn't get the controller with it but found out the operation on line.Another unusual aspect is it is painted rather than color impregnated. Makes a nice display piece and is about 1/12th scale.

  10. Yes, you can still buy "D" cells almost anywhere.

    image.jpeg 10 1/2" long Tootsietoy plastic 1934 5W, after I slammed it and gave it a coat of primer.

    Might need major surgery to tuck rear wheels in......for now, call it 60's style!

  28. These Buddy L and Nylent pressed steel Hot Rods are some of my favorites. Pretty inexpensive, and cool body styles. They're fun to customize too.:) IMG_06431.jpeg IMG_06381.jpeg IMG_06371.jpeg IMG_06401.jpeg IMG_06411.jpeg IMG_06341.jpeg IMG_06421.jpeg
