  1. Hi All, This is my 1st post as I am new to this forum & hope the knowledge within will provide answers to my ?'s. A friend who grew up in California recently gave me this Toby Cart he used as a kid. It was produced by the Halicki company in Gardena California, sometime in the 60's. The motor is an Ohlsson & Rice, J II .85, the carb, & gas tank are missing so I am on the hunt for both. I have gone thru the motor & all is good to go! This is meant as a display piece so there is no panic or urgency to grab parts. You won't catch me or anyone I care for trying it out! Would the carb be the same as the J I & J III? if so what source if any? where could I get a steel tank? There is not much info available about "Toby Cart" on the internet period. This is what I've researched so far & hope I have it correct. Toby Halicki moved to California when he was 15 & started pumping gas, within 2 years he owned his own body shop & eventually ended up with his own wrecking yard, he started building hot rods & custom cars, fixing wrecks etc, he took real estate classes & ended up buying commercial properties, later he was tapped to do stunt driving in movies & eventually caught the acting bug. He took acting class & ending up writing a script (1974) to a movie titled "Gone in 60 Seconds". The movie was not that successful in N America but Europe loved it & he made millions. Unfortunately Toby died while filming Gone in 60 #2 (1989) on location in Buffalo, a stunt went wrong & he was hurt by a downed telephone pole. An avid collector, Toby also owned one of the worlds largest toy & automobile collections. Thanks for looking & feel free to correct or add info. Sincerely, Don M Ont Canada
