    Yesterdays finds included an early MARX bus. Royal Bus Lines. My books show it to be fairly rare. It is also fairly rusty. lol

    Next is a Wyandotte boat tailed racer with working headlights. They made these in three sizes, this is the 8 and 5/8 inch model. The working headlights used flashlight bulbs.

    Next is what I am almost positive is a Wyandotte stake sided cab and trailer. Could not find this exact truck but the cab and stake design is almost certainly Wyandotte.

      Nice finds! I would love to see more of that bus!
    3. Benking, 10 years ago
      Like Rambow, I would love to see more of the 3...

      Very nice find GV, would like to see better pics of the bus also, I believe I have the truck, I will check.

      super finds!!!
    6. Dan121156 Dan121156, 10 years ago
      Great find!
    7. vincentanton vincentanton, 10 years ago
      Flash bulbs??!! You sure it's not a camera in disguise. That is intriguing. I have never heard of such a vehicle using flash bulbs. So it has a battery compartment, too? Incredible find!
    8. gvgordon gvgordon, 10 years ago
      Flashlight bulbs. Like in a handheld lamp. Not the photographic type.
    9. vincentanton vincentanton, 10 years ago
      Where is the battery compartment? In the trunk, or underneath?
    10. gvgordon gvgordon, 10 years ago
      was underneath (is missing, , the 'brake" lever on the side actualy was a light switch.

      Nice design integration of form and function!
