    RE: My vintage collection

    It amazes me how Tamiya is able to come up with stuff that corny... "Being nuts is neat". God thats horrible.

    that terra conquerer is sick. love it! df01's are the bomb.

    you wouldn't think it but that terra conquerer will smoke the egress and avante, pretty much smoke any tamiya 4wd up to the df03's anddb01's.

    Yes the conqueror has a simple but very reliable chassis. Great car.

    RE: My vintage collection

    I had a Manta Ray a long time ago, if you have one it'd be nice to see it. Was the Manta Ray a DF01 I recognise that metal king pin brace at the front on the Terra Conqueror.

    RE: My vintage collection

    Just started my vintage collection with an almost brand new Tamiya Ford F-150 Ranger, not a scratch on it, bad part.... Missing the body... But on the brighter side of things, just picked up a brand new, still in the original shrink wrap Ford F-150 Ranger... Both are kit #58027... Anyone have a vintage F-150 Ranger body for sale? Thinking of modding a Blackfoot body for now. They look like exact copies. Just fill in the holes where the light bar goes, drill a few body mount holes and the switch hole.

    Thanks again....The sad part is, in 2009 I sold about 50 cars just to survive. Cool stuff like the Kyosho Plazma KS2 pan car, the BMT Tamiya and the Kyosho F 10 series Panoz car. Buit as the same cars come up on ebay I am slowling buying them back. I just picked up the Tamiya Ferrari 310 F1...another one I wanted back. I also picked up the Kyosho AXIS...a beatiful cheap buggy Ktosho Made in the late 80's...


    And, I am trying to buy back my New in box HPI Mini from the guy I sold it to 3 years ago..
