This wooden toy truck, built by George Russell, was made to look and function like a coin bank. Mr. Russell worked for Roger Penske’s racing organization. In his spare time, he enjoyed making toys from wood for his children. After they grew up and no longer had any interest in them, he sold the toys to a fellow worker, John McGinley, who donated them to our museum. A US quarter is shown in the photo for scale reference.
