Yes, but if I was single....sure would look funny taking a 5" date to the bar? Like, what, she'd sit in a shot glass or something?

I guess it looks ok, seems like a hassle to collect all the parts though.

Still could be fun...

You might want to go check it out at www.tamiyaclub.com

Although I don't think it is for sale anymore as it is limited edition..

It is not being sold by the website.. It is made by some forum member there... but you sometimes see people sell it in the for sale post there..

Rats! Looks like I've missed it.....

Oh well, I guess I'll just have to wait for WWIII then.....

I would kinda like Tamiya to do a WWI retro release... don't you think that would be cool? Kinda like what they are doing with the Frog.....

Maybe just have a wheelie bar added but thats it!

That would be nice for sure, but I think WW-2 keeps the spirits of the original WW-1.. same hard shell.. same wheelie.. but now with better suspension..

What I want to see is a Monster Beetle re-release.. LOL! That would make a fun basher for sure!

No arguments there about the Wild Willy 2 spirit thing.....

Yeah, are the wheels (front) straight or at least even on both side?
