    Wooden toy racxe car

    anyone know anything about these things? I've got one that I forgot I had just stumbled across it today, it has the words "Daytona Beach" on the side, and based on the wooden button someone used to replace a missing tire I'd say someone loved it lots. The way you see it is the way I got it. Would anyone be interested in trying to help me ID it, year, maker and what not.

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Thats a great link! The only differance I see is the Pinewood derby cars used/use plastic wheels, and this one uses wood wheels. Great link though, thanks.

    Original pinewood derby kits did have skinny wheels

    But the stamping of Daytona Beach in the side leads me to believe it was sold on Daytona Beach in the days when races were run on the sand there. Probably made by some souvenir shop. Might be hard to track down the exact date, etc.

    The problem with the Pinewood Derby theory is my car doesn't have small wooden struts, the "axels" are driven right into the wooden body of the car, and it seems even the orig Pinewood Derby cars used plastic wheels, mine are wooden. Thats why I'm leaning towards the souvenir shop theory, if thats the case I may never know much about it. Where would you put it date wise? just a guesstimate will be fine.

    Here's the same car. Looks like you're missing the steering wheel on yours.

    Keystone Manufacturing Company
    Boston, Massachusetts
    1920 - 1958
    Founders: Chester Rimmer and Arthur Jackson

    Looks like it's worth $30 - $40.
