My best buy was an old punk record I brought for 50p (just had a hunch) it went for £117 on eBay...)

Solar rockers? I don't think you need any of them. The pope one looks creepy. :D

Charity Shop Gold or Garbage Charity Shop Short solar 2 days ago   18:19

UPDATE JANUARY 2014
Found another Air Powered car in the charity shops today and found the pump it came with made both the cars featured in this video work fine so I must now regrade them as GOLD not garbage although they were "garbage" at the time as the pump that came with them at the time failed. Here is the new car video https://ai-tube.com/videoai/nUw0GfRVpMN

This episode covers a "Tobar - Air Pump Racer" bought from one of my local charity shops. I have checked the Tobar website and this item is no longer listed. On Amazon it is shown as no longer available but was first listed in June 2006 so this car could be as much as 7 years old.
I regularly visit charity shops looking for items that may interest my grandchildren. I thought it might make an interesting subject for YouTube if I recorded my findings as "Gold" or "Garbage".
My opinion of charity shops is that you have a 50/50 chance of buying junk or on the positive side you have a 50/50 chance of picking up a bargain. Typically you could buy a jigsaw puzzle and you won't know until you finish whether it has all the pieces.
A simple toy car can probably be checked in the shop, does it have 4 wheels and does it run along the floor if you push it. Anything more complicated probably cannot be checked until you get home.
In today's episode I took a chance on a toy that looked like it could be fun and at the same time potentially an educational toy demonstrating the use of air pressure, valves, cams, piston, connecting rod and gearing.
On a positive side, from an educational point of view, the fact I can disassemble the car right down to it's component parts to see how it works is a complete success.
On a negative side, the fact the car just did not work means that I will have to give this purchase the "Garbage" award.

If you have a question it is probably worth reading this video description first because the answer may already be here. I have over 2000 videos on YouTube covering a wide range of subjects. To find them follow my YouTube search guide https://ai-tube.com/videoai/prOFBbBUptj or see my playlists

Generally my projects are for my grandchildren to enjoy. OK, I enjoy them too. If anybody else likes them, that is a bonus. I like to keep my work as simple and basic as possible so that it can be copied easily and improved by anybody who wants to try themselves. I recycle or repurpose items rather than buy new and when I do buy I like to keep it cheap.
