    Nice job BlueZero.

    I just wished I still had some of my Matchbox cars from the 1960's & 70's.

    I think #40 would go perfect on the tires

    Meguiar's Ultimate Liquid Wax
    Meguiar's Ultimate Fast Finish
    3 applications of Old English Lemon Oil on ok ladders.

    Not old, yet old style. Although small and plastic.

    There are old metal fire trucks on that large online auction site.
    You can even find some 1950 era Tonkas, or 1920 Buddy L (ladder trucks can go for more than $2,000 if in good condition).
    There are made in China reproduction fire Truck Pedal Cars.
    If you use caution, you might even find an older pedal fire truck.
    I restored (does not have pedal mechs) the one above, that likely was built 1950-1955.
    It has wagon wheels and not pedal car wheels, yet the wheels/tires are available.

    Thumbs up on the firetruck!

    They don't make 'em like that anymore.
