Default Best Tootsie I ever found

Went to an old farm site that I knew was torn down 30 years ago and now its a county park. Found a lot of cool relics, but these two are my favorite. The Tootsie car cleaned-up nice. The Pegasus is cool but didn't clean as well.

Cool! I find several each year. The soil here treats them kindly. I found a Tootsie train car that was huge, it was about two inches tall and 6 inches long.

If I had to hazard a guess, the Pegasus is/was a Sinclair license plate topper, but the mounting bolt hole is broke off.

Nice old tootsie. I remember Mobiloil had a Pegasus like that painted on their cans. Nice finds.
