Thank you.Welcome to the world of "this thing was't this expensive before,what the hell happened?",homie.XD those tonka trucks from the 60's must have a pretty big collector's market (as most toys do once the company stops making them: supply and demand) so i'm not at all surprised that they go for that much these days. I get the nostalgia aspect of it,but i'd at least consider the new plastic one's if you really want some tonka in your life but are unsure if the metal one's are worth the absurd pricetag. One of my favorite toys when i was little was a little,plastic fisher price knight and dragon figure set i got from McDonald's: super basic (the knight's sword arm goes up and down and the dragon is all green and does nothing) but they were still quite fun. But if you just REALLY want the metal tonka and are willing (and have the means) to pay whatever they want for it,than i say just pull the trigger and go for it. Sometimes personal value trumps monetary value.
