Toys for Big Boys @

Restoring old toys gives some "true" collectors a problem, but when done correctly, to an old toys that would have been discarded, it is a very good thing.  Finding parts can be difficult, that is why I started restoring a FORD Mustang, in the early eighties,  because parts were easier to find in my area.

My first large toy restoration was a Farmall Pedal Tractor from my youth.  I almost sold it in a yard sale, but decided against it.

I have restored a few Pedal Cars and they can be just as much work as the real cars sometime. Don't plan on getting rich restoring toys, it needs to be a "labor of love".

Restoring Redline Hot Wheels is fun also, but can be time consuming and required very detailed work.  I am yet to master the art of the "Spectraflame" colors.
