    Default old Tonka toy

    I'm stuck at home and can not work and am going a bit stir crazy so I might be posting
    more odd stuff than normal.

    After seeing Ralph's beautiful Cobras, I though I might post this old
    project from about 2005.

    I had found some old metal Tonka hotrods made back in the 1960's.
    I decided to do a restoration on one of them.

    Somewhere I have a pictures where I had finshed it off with a
    windshield and frame and better interior shots but I can't seem
    to find that file right now .

    Sin city motors in miniature. Nice resto. I can only distantly recall my Tonka toys all being bright yellow, then turning orange as they slowly rusted in my sand pit!!

    Nice job Greg, I was recently cleaning the basement, when I can across my old Tonka toys, Dump truck, Crane, etc.
    I was wondered if people restored these classic toys, and now I know they do.
    Get well soon my friend.
    Cheers Chris

    That's better than Earl Scheib by a long shot, no overspray nor masking lines ;-)

    I still have my old Tonka trucks from the 60's and 70's in my parents attic.. They still look brand new out of the box...

    Nice looking remodel...

    I remember Tonka dump trucks, great in the sandpit.

    Interesting item. Did you receive the bell I sent?

    No bell yet I'm sure if I used it, my wife would be adding to
    the number of dents it has.
