Default Vintage R/C Discussion/Pics/Selling/Wanted

Ok I thought maybe just start a thread for Vintage r/c since there aren't any here. We can discuss on old out of production R/Cs,restoration,where to get parts, trade or post your vintage r/c pics. Hope this will bring up the all the sweet memories and help keeping the old R/Cs alive. Anyway if the response is not that good will just delete this thread.

Lets start rolling, I got Tamiya Grasshopper,HotShot,Pajero,Frog,Falcon...all in trashy condition
currently interested in collecting the Fast Attack Vehicle and Mountaineer and saving up for it very hard

Hi,

I have a Kyosho Turbo Optima Mid. Considered vintage? Still looking for parts to restore, especially the steering arms and kuckles, universal dog bones, etc.

My past cars were Boomerang, Yokomo Dog fighter and turbo optima, before taking a looooonnnnggg break, and i am now with HPI Pro 3.

Restoring is a pleasure as it brings back the memories, especially when u save like hell for hop ups, watching your classmates feast like a King at tuck shop during recess, etc .....
