  1. I think what you have is a Thimble Drome Special tether car, without the engine installed. The push cars don't have eye-hooks for the tether wire. Probably 1947.
  2. Wow, what a find! It's a tether car, no doubt about it, and it's quite valuable.
  3. Is that a minichamps? nice!
  4. Beautiful work.
  5. It looks like a 1930's Wyandotte Stake Bed Truck. It looks to be in original condition, and it's fairly valuable, too. Nice find.
  6. Just a "bump". I still have no idea what this car is, how old it is or anything. Sure looks cool in my cabinet though! Thanks for any help.

  8. That grill design looks familiar...I just can't quite put my finger on it...
  9. I so want one of these! haha. nice.
  10. Love it! Get yourself a nice set of axles and tires for this, and put it on your shelf! Here's one on ebay: BARCLAY BV #61 LIGHT BLUE 2 DOOR SEDAN, SLUSH LEAD, LATE 30'S http://www.ebay.com/itm/VIN...
  11. Of course they made toy cars earlier than the 1950's. The oldest toy car in my personal collection is from the mid-1920's. But, you would not expect to see a model of 1950's style car that was made in...
  12. I don't know anything about this particular toy, but based on the automotive styling of the model, I would guess it represents a car from the 1950 or newer. If that was a toy made in the 1920's, it wo...
  13. It's a Porcher Classic Model K70, made in the early 1970s and maybe up until the 1990s. Search on Google, and you can find tonnes of information and parts for these.
  14. Look at this page for information: http://www.mustangtoys.com/bandai.htm How long is the car? Yours looks like No. 1051 with those white wall tires. But it has the sticker (which was sometimes on ...
  15. The large racer looks like a Woodette Tornado Racer manufactured by Winzeler Mfg & Tool Co. and made in Chicago, IL. It's from the 1940's and runs from compressed air.
  16. That's a Franklin Mint 1:24 Bently. It listed at $135 new. See a review of the model here: http://tinyurl.com/8c9p483
  17. Here's one like your yellow one. http://tinyurl.com/98chzk5
  18. I made a custom set of decals for this car to emulate the Jim Clark No. 19 Indy Car from 1966. Although it's not original to the toy, it can be "un-done" simply by removing them. One thing about thes...
  19. If it has the trailer hitch that goes with your bat-boat, then its probably '67 to '72. Check out this site for more info: http://www.batmobile.free.fr/English/Intro.htm
  20. I have one of these, but it's not nearly as old as yours. I think the red bat symbols on the wheels will help you to date it - it's one of the more rare ones. Nice!
  21. The black car is from some kind of wind-up speedway racetrack toy. These date back as far as the 1920s but are still made today as reproductions. Here's an old one: http://toysoftimespast.com/produc...
  22. This is it! GIRARD BOAT TAIL RACE CAR - TIN WIND UP - 1924 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=251134786284&fromMakeTrack=true&ssPageName=VIP:watchlink:top:en
  23. Not exactly the same, but similar to this: http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/southport/antiques-collectables/bugatti-car-model/354384639
  24. he oldest one I have is a 1959 O.S. Pet .099 with the throttle for RC. It's a pretty little engine. I also have a late 1960s rudder-only escapement model (Carl Goldberg Jr Falcon for 0.049) that was g...
  25. I love these old engines. RC flying models are another hobby of mine. I have a few engines (not as nice as yours), I keep them in my display case right along with all the model cars! To me, these old ...
  26. In 1967, the Corvette did not yet have that body shape. But, nice model!
  27. I got the same one!
  28. I haven't actually got the car yet, it's still in the mail. The tires look like bakelite wheels to me - but they could have been replacements.
  29. Thanks stefdesign, I do plan on picking up a reproduction key and trying it out. Any idea what kind of car this is? Thanks.
  30. Wow, that's perfect!
  31. Great model of a gorgeous car. I have a couple of 1/18 Minichamps, and X1/9 and a Williams-Renault FW19 (Jacques Villeneuve). They make fantastic models.
  32. I agree skiturbo911. It was the second prototype of the car. It's hard to believe that design dates back to 1971! It was designed of Marcello Gandini of Bertone, who also designed the Fiat X1/9 (see t...
  33. All the decals appear to be intact, I would just leave it as is. The only thing I might do, is find a replacement head for the driver.
  34. Great photographs. That slot car looks like it's enjoyed many hours of high speed fun!
  35. Awesome ride! I did the same years ago with a '74 Fiat X1/9. I got the real thing first, the model later. Have fun in that thing!
  36. Dr_Rambow definitely beat me to it! I was just trying to add a little more information. What a pretty little plane! Check out the real thing flying here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnZWD6H_rfc
  37. I think I found it. The overall shape very closely matches the yellow racer shown here (no manufacturer listed though), but it does look like a Strauss. http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/1946215 ...
  38. Very neat model. It's not actually a P-38, but a "Crusader", a small passenger aircraft from the early 1930's. It's design pre-dates the P-38. You can read more about it here: http://www.rareplanes.co...
  39. Thanks for the information Todd and the advice on maintaining it. It sure does have the look of a Stauss racer. I agree with the "folk art" comment, it is rather charming just as it is.
  40. It looks like a Cox thimble drome tether car.
  41. That's really great work.
  42. wow that's beautiful.
  43. That a model of the English Electric Lightning, the highest performing aircraft in it's day. It had two afterburning engines, placed one above the other, rather than side-by-side like most twin engine...
  44. Still doing some online research. As far as I can find, Ludington Griswold Inc., located in Saybrook, Connecticut, was a small aeronautical research group that operated a wind tunnel, and did research...
  45. Thanks for the "love it" ratings! If anyone knows anymore about this model, please let me know.
  46. I'm familar with the Wilbur Shaw Indy cars, those are fantastic! This car is modeled after the race cars from that same era for sure.
  47. Nice model, I have seen these go in the $100 to $200 range, maybe $300 in mint condition. These were sold at the souvenir stands at the Speedway during races. Very nice piece of indy racing history.
  48. That's a Thimble Drome tether car, quite valuable. Powered by a small model airplane engine, you would connect it to a metal wire and to a post. They go VERY fast around in a circle. Very nice model!
  49. See more
