    Iíve found my share of Hot Wheels this summer, but this is my first older toy, and Iím really excited to have dig it with my daughter. Found it in a city park which apparently has never been searched before, so Iím definitely going back tomorrowódespite the snow flurries!

    I found a match to this item at the link below. If you disagree or have any other insights, Iíd appreciate it. The hunting season isnít over yet!

    Very nice find, and the memory of digging it with your daughter is the real prize. I found a Green Hubley pickup truck on a date night with the wife 5 years ago. You would have thought by her reaction that we had found the holy grail.

    Do you mean tapping out the dents, giving a new paint job, finding some wheels, etc.? That sounds fun. What else would that entail?

    Very nice find. Hubley and Tootsie Toy cars are my favorite old toys to find. Your daughter looks like she can't wait until she's 16 so she can drive it !
