Default Vintage Tamiya Slogans

I ran across this blog that wrote about the vintage Tamiya Avante (the first one, not the DF-03 based MkII). Part of the article wrote about how whacky some of the Slogans that came with their cars. I thought I'd copy and paste it here for you guys:

AVANTE-Being Nuts is Neat!

HORNET-Anytime Baby!

VANQUISH-Up and Away!

GRASSHOPPER 2-I'm Hopping Mad!

STRIKER-Get Rough!

FALCON-Born to be Wild!

FROG-No Guts, No Glory

EGRESS-Way Out Running

SUPER CHAMP-Go for It!

MAD CAP-Never Give Up

TERRA SCORCHER-Flying High

ASTUTE-Awesome!

If anyone else have any more to add, please do, I really love these vintage Tamiya slogans, especially the Avante's...

That's funny you brought this up. I have been painting vintage Tamiya wing slogens on my wings for me and my buddies. I will take some pics and post them here.

Would love to see those slogans painted... That kinda gives me an idea on this blank wing that I have here for my Tamiya DF-03MS...
