Today this popped up on ebay. A Wood Hydroplane Miss America 7 Table thing. I am voting ashtray. But thats always open to interpretation. Its metal so that makes sense, Die cast, and still has paint on it. Also says WOOD, not Gar Wood. I suppose there is some sort of name change at some point to Gar Wood? Since Wood would have been very difficult to Trademark. I suppose this may also explain why Chris Smith evolved into a Trademark Chris Craft.
So is it table display? Or candy holder? Coin holder? Speaking of coins, I know one thing for double dog sure, is that the starting bid of 8 bucks wont last long. But what is the value of such an item? And lets say you win it for $500.00, then what? Does it go on your table? Or? See? More questions. The good news, I can make a story out of it! Woohooo! Another day, done!
