Default I guarantee nobody has seen this RC 1/8 onroad car with 4 cylinder engine before :)

Tell me what you guys think. My dad bought this for me in the early 80's. Dont know anything about it. I have never started it as well as never cleaned it as you can see. I have been offered staggering amounts of money for it over the years. Tell me your thoughts, good or bad...

Very cool car!

It got me thinking of another car, not RC 1/8, but still a nice car.

I hope you can get yours started and get it on video so we can hear it!

Very nice. Gary Walker built a 1/8 pan car in the mid 70's with FOUR .049 engines. It was a nightmare to keep running.

No - What is shown is a 4 cylinder engine. I was speaking of 4 separate .49 engines in one car.
