A Reader Finds Out 
About Her Own Toy


Periodically, I get asked if I can help out with the manufacturer of a toy and when it was made.
A few weeks again, I received a request for those same reasons. I was unable to discover the information that the reader by the name of Laura Taylor had asked for. I wrote back to say so. Later, Laura replied that she had discovered information about her toy, and for what "real" race car this toy was modelled after. It turned out that this toy was modelled after a famous Audi  race car that had made a record speed run on an oval speed track in Germany in 1937. The race car had travelled over 400 km/hr (248.5 mph).  For 1937 that was certainly very fast!  There were some Audi rings that were on the toy car, but for myself were not visible.

Below are the photos that Laura was so kind to allow me to use, as well as some photos that I found on the Internet.







Interestingly, Laura Taylor found a buyer for this wonderful toy within the 
3 weeks that we had corresponded. Bravo to her.


So that's it for today.
Thanks for dropping by,
and as always,
Have a great part of the day or night,
wherever you may be.
