Value is easy to determine.

Vintage cars are worth as much as the next buyer is willing to pay.

Post some pics of that Kyosho Rocky.. I remember wanting one of those when I was in middle school. I ended up with a Optima Mid. I think I might even have a Tower Hobbies catalog from the 80's as well.

Alot depends on condition of course - but expect ot get approx 60 to 100 for a nice RC10 and about the same for a Rocky.

Again - pictures would help alot.

Cheers

+1...

Although the sentimental value to the individual who has ownership of the said vintage is often an immeasurable quantity...

Totally agree - I am well known for one of my sayings: "It is worth whatever somone else is willing to pay.".. Quite often with certain types of these vintage cars though, numbers of people are willing to pay quite a bit!

I was replying to the thread to try and give an estimate to the question asked.

Cheers

Darryn

Depends on how you are wanting to sell it. "Sticker shock" kills more auctions than anything else.

Pretty hard to tell without seeing the car as well........

What would I know though!
