I've never seen one, the only ones I've ever seen in chrome colors are the Saltflat Racer, Super Snoot, and Screamn Demon. I would love to think there's colors still out there that I've never seen, especially if I have a chance to buy them LOL. I paid a decent chunk of money for this blue one, but you know what they say. You better buy it when you see it, you might never find another one.

So it's safe to say that any of the chrome one will bring big coin if in good shape I assume?

Sure wish there was enough "business" in the Tote world to keep an active exchange of info.

Now a Totes subsubforum would be killer...guess I have to FB for that. Ew.

LDC65 is there. Can say high at least.

His FB linc maybe be posted in this thread somewhere if the spirit moves anyone.

The thing I find very interesting about Totes is, not one real pony/muscle car.
Highly unique for the time period and factoring in the bignlittle mags/tires, & giant mills..

Why revive a dead thread???? You know all you needed to do was ask for that, and we would of made sure it was in the poll.


If you need help, please let me know. If you see a post that you think does not belong, please report it.

Didn't even think to ask. I had a choice at this point?

Probably there are only two Totes threads in the history of HT and one is mine.
LDC65 started his own thread asking "Any Totes Collectors out There?
That tells me he didn't do a search, just started a new thread because he didn't see mine, no?
Otherwise he would've worded the title differently.

The 2 threads got pretty good action and ended like most obscure threads do...for now.

They fit fine in Vintage Diecast is how I thought.
I thought your poll ideas were over with.
Reconfiguring a web site...we'll just say I'm not the guy to talk to.

Like when all the kids went to Twits R Us from FB.
The Titter people have their brains geared towards all things web-tastic and trendy.
I'm just not that guy.

What works/worked great for me as a hobbiest apparently isn't working for HT as a commercial venture.

AMT Pups/Super Speedy Wheels might have been another to add more stuff.
Mini Lindys too. Motorific by Ideal...It's endless I guess.

Meanwhile, a great deal of Tonka Totes history resides here being a tremendous resource.

Yes, the thread was dead but has come back to life before.
Was hopeing to spark new interest. That's good, yes?
