I think it is a old Parma Spec racer from early 90's.

Even if you get a few hours or more use out of it, it was worth the $5... looks like fun

Yeah looks like a Parma of some kind. I know they made a Days of Thunder stock car back in the day.

I don't remember Parma having those pod plates.. I'm gonna guess Bolink.

the stick pack in the photo is not a nimh pack!

that is a sce 1200 nicad pack from the mid to late 80's

the car is way old school wide oval car made out of cheap fiberglass...

a "sport" oval car that looks like it had very few runs on it.

not so sure about it being a bolink...it's not an eliminator..coyote or bandito...

could be parma.......

Looks like an S&K spec oval chassis. It's not a "wide" car, either.

That is a steal. I would have bought that in a second. Even if you can never get parts for it the fun you'll have until you break something is more than worth $5. Great find!

BTW wanna sell it? I'll give you $6.

I think the sce packs had black print on then, and that would be an even older sc pack....

Not a Parma...Parma used a folded aluminum rear pod.

Not a Bolink...Bolink used black fiberglass

Good find at $5
