I did a thread about my competing in New Hampshire's Soap Box Derby in 1950/51 but I can't find it.  

So, yesterday my son his wife and I went looking at a boat.  Not for me, for them.  On the way home we stopped at a place that had a sign "Vintage toys for sale."  Big barn, lots of stuff.  Looking through it I saw a set of Soap Box Derby wheels identical to the ones that I had on my racer.  

Confession.  When we moved in the early 2000's from Spring Hill in Florida, I believe I left my set of wheels in the loft above the garage.  Pretty dumb, but I did for some reason ship the axles.  

So I bought the wheels.  This morning I cleaned them up.  This time they get bolted to the wall above my workbench.  Not leaving them again.  Axles in front.

Bought these on ebay a few months ago.  Some may remember.
