Default Thank you

I would like to thank all of you guys for this thread.

I just came across two complete cars with no markings...and thanks to your photos, I now know that I have 2 Parsec cars with hundreds of extra parts and an amazing NovaRossi engine.

Anyone know if these would sell?

thanks,
Jeremiah

P.S. I can include pictures if desired...

Yeah, but my question is...
Any way I could get my hands on some tech data on these cars? I am used to things like the Traxxas T-Maxx...and this is a totally new creature.

Anyone willing to help a noob?

Jeremiah

unfortunately,
there are not going to be too many resources for those cars. there were relatively low production numbers and even lower numbers imported here.

at best i would say hang on to them and display them to show everyone that a great era of model race cars has passed away.

Default thanks Turbo

Hey, thanks for the advice.
I would like to see them run, so I will play with them gently and then put them up.

Well, that's the value to me if I had to put a price tag on it.

Don't get me wrong, i am not saying that is not worth that, i think it is.

Those are a cool car, and to see one, i assume it is NIB, like that is really rare.

Awesome find!

Scott

Thanks.

Treat others how you want to be treated. I try to live by that.

Once again, awesome find. Are you going to put it together? If so, please post more pictures. would be nice to find a period correct engine. A Paris Picco P5 would be cool. I have a old NovaRossi for my Serpent Excel.

Scott

No, I am not going to put it together. How about a O'Donnell modified Top competition engine? I tried a Paris Top engine with turbo head long time ago, and I liked it.
