    First good find--now--How old is it ?

    First time out (of any duration) at new site--old homestead--found this about 10" deep--excellant condition after cleaning, Anybody got any ideas on how old it is ? I was told the old home was built in early 1900's, demolishes in '94. At any rate--I'm hooked now--first find other than clad.

    possibly Kilgore? Not many had cast wheels, most were rubber and didn't hold up under ground. cool dig. Bongo

    Nice car. Here's a photo tip. These cameras usually have a macro setting for close ups. The icon for it is usually a flower. Even on that setting, mine gets fuzzy when I try to get too close. Some cameras work closer than others. To get a REALLY close pic, put a magnifying glass right up against the front of your camera lens. Works for getting those tiny details. If you already know this, just ignore me

    Nice car and probably got you a good site !! Keep looking

    I love finding toys.

    That's a beauty! I'd google vintage toy cars. You're bound to find out the era it was made.

    Congratulations.

    Did not find your exact car here... but it's an interesting site and makes me think your find dates 1915 to 1930. Check out the first set of cast irons...
