Not a bad looking buggy. I like the scale appearance.

I might get one. Wouldn't want to bash such a cool looking buggy though, so it might end up being my first and only shelf queen.

Nah, it will be relatively cheap, so you should bash it.. !! (about the same price as Frog..)

With these small tires, they won't be superb runner, but they will be ultra scale.. !!

I could have had an original good condition FAV for $10 last year[:@]. Club member brought it to the swapmeet at our monthly meeting, and I forgot about it by the time the meeting was over. Now, if it had been a Wild One...
