We have a winner in the Car Booty Competition! Here is the winning entry from Amy:
"Hi there ! Just a quick guess at the competion. I think the toy talked about might be the "Daleks" Cutta-mastic set by Bell Toys (1965 I think). The main clue is the burning smell, the importance of the battery (which i think was the big square 9 (?) volt type - but was it actually included ?) and the fact the Boot sale dealer had tested it, which seemed to spoil the toy. Anyway that's my best guess. Amy"
Several readers were close but Amy was the first correct answer! Well done Amy! You are now the proud owner of the rare JR21 Dart Gun, which will be winging its way to you via Thunderbird 2!
Thanks to everyone who had a bash and a big thanks to Steve of http://www.thunderbirdsvintagetoys.co.uk/index1.htm for creating the competition and donating the fab prize in our very first bloggiversary competition. Cheers Steve and Well Done Amy!
PS. For those interested all 7 clues are shown in the side-bar - when would you have known the answer?
