That's really sharp Juan. Very nice job, especially your engineering and machining. Thanks for letting us watch over your shoulder.

Thank`s guys. Like I said at the beginning I was inspired by a Hubley toy racer that Mr. Leo Squires built. I have searched but his site is no more. It has been a lot of work for me since I`m an amateur machinist but I enjoyed doing it and the final product.
I have to think what to do next now that I will be having free time. Here is a link to Worthpoint that shows the car by Mr. Squires

Even more impressive when you consider that it started out looking something like this:

Which got me to thinking about if I could power one with a Pittman motor from a model locomotive, they will run on a 9 volt smoke detector battery.

Which would need a little different body style to accommodate the taller motor.

I'm just thinking Juan but you are the motivator.  Trouble is, I do more thinking than I do doing.  Sad

Hello DavidII1984
I built the little car for the joy of doing it and have no plans to do anything that might damage it. I have been in the hobby for many years doing airplanes, cars, helicopters and having fun. Thanks for your comments.

Hello rsv1cox
Give it a try and just work a little bit at a time in the project and you will have it done. I like the little car in the photo you posted how old and what brand is it?

Hello getback
I don`t think so because I know that at the first flip and crash the body is soft and might twist into a pretzel but if my new grandson 16 months old want to see it run in future years I just might but very carefully. I will give the paint job about a month and then I might try to run the engine. Thanks for asking.

It's something that I found on ebay under "Hubley toy cars". I went back and tried to find it this morning but someone must have snatched it up.

These seem to run between $20 and $30 on ebay.
