Hannes Posted May 25, 2018 Share Posted May 25, 2018 I want to cheer you up a bit , dear Harvey , that´s why I post this photo of my " Willy the walking car " It´s a rare battery-operated Japanese tin toy from the late 50´s and there´s a funny story behind . Some weeks ago I bought a very rusty version of this toy on a flea-market for 15 euros . It was complete and working but with wrong wheelcaps as I had to learn later . I was looking at the internet and found a toy-dealer in New York who was selling this toy for 50 dollars but without driver´s head and a damaged remote control . I ordered it and exchanged the parts and now I have an almost brand-new toy . Willy is 60 years old now but in a very good condition and even the car walks very slow he´s been living on three continents already ( Asia , America and Europe ) Many greetings !
