Getting hard to remember exactly. No internet then. Just guys calling guys on the phone, "hey man, guess what I saw".

Bolink had that crazy plastic chassis with the hex axle.

I think that plastic thing was there first 1/12th car.The hobby shop here ordered about 5 chassis once and got mad at us(our club members) for not buying them.The main reason was only one guy drove that car in our club and he did not drive often. Besides that chassis they got all these parts for the car. By then Bolink had already gone to there new car the deadboy/challenger series(which they were selling).I got that one as it was the second car 1/12th I got.It's on the shelf along with my 1/12th Leisure.I drove for Leisure until I got my Delta ride in 1982.

Amen. Build 'em up!!
