Zee toys, crazy fun!

Postby btaylor » Wed Sep 27, 2017 12:30 pm

If some of you guy's want a fun challenge, try building some slots out of old hard plastic pull back cars! Zee toys made a bunch of them in the 60's, and still do. they can be had very cheap on ebay, and are often available in lots real cheap. I just got these the other day, and have built a few of them over the last months. Some are fairly accurate representations of the real cars, some are not, but can be made to look good anyway. They even pop up at the dollar stores quite often. Try em! you might like them!

These are a few I have built from similar Zee toys pull back cars.

You right, those are awesome. What's the body made from?

I did see these last year I think at one of the DG stores.

As always, you think ahead of the rest of us :) Nice choices.

Our local store has them too. They come with oversized wheels and tires now, but those are throw a way's. add a little brass chassis, and you have yourself a fun runner, that will take some crashes! The bodies are made of the same plastic as a model kit, or similar. they are not the Tupperware soft plastic.
