I thought it would be fun to collect the Tonkas that I had when I was a kid. These two are the beginning of my collection. I just picked them up on Ebay. I still have my original Tow Truck from the 70s, but it is in bad condition (missing everything).

'Tonka Trucks' is how I reference all new full-size pickups.

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

That thing is Awesome! I Love those wrap around rear fenders and all of the attention to detail. He's right, they "hit a homerun" on that truck! Thanks for posting it.

interesting,...but wish the company would just stick with its known market.......and go back to do some pressed steel toys.
