    Here is a Dodge Airflow tanker truck that a friend of mine made using cast iron. He made the full length versions using the Texaco and Richfield logos. The one pictured here has been dissected to use in the "Safari set" toys. You can see the front half in the lower right side of the photo.

    More toy Dodge Airflow truck photos. My buddy made these cast iron toys a while ago. They are actually 1934s, but who can tell? They are about a foot long and very heavy. He even made the rubber tires! He made some with the TEXACO logo, but got a C&D letter from the execs telling him to stop.

    Just want to "MAHALO" everyone for all the photos & info! Like that Richfield Tanker - it would at least fit in the shop a little better! But I'd still prefer the real thing, eh!

    Just thought I'd bring this back up to inquire if there are any "new photos" out there?
