Apple-core batteries to power - Trash bins to speed!
This Corgi casting is from 1980. It's amazing how off-model these Corgi character cars were - Tom (of Tom and Jerry fame) looks more like a skinny guy in tights with a cat head than the beloved housecat he is supposed to represent.
The car design is actually quite clever - as if Tom made a car out of old junk (like crutches and a trash can.) Although such a concept is more apropos of Fat Albert than Tom and Jerry, it's still a very cool little toy.
