Used to be more into vintage stuff til parts became annoying to get, here's my list:

Sears Lobo: Yes its a toy grade but it was my first RC.
The electronics are inoperable, might just clean it and shelf queen it.

Tamiya Baja Bug Frog: With how scale older Tamiyas can look to full size buggies, I decided on a cheap Frog for a restoration/baja bug project. After extensive work It became a good runner, still has the old "crappy" hex axles too.

Tamiya FAV/Wild One: Mix of new and old parts, like the Frog its a runner. I like the fairly scale suspension setup and detail to it. Bonus points for sharing parts with the Frog (I guess).

Hot Trick Tamiya Fox: Shelf-queen, picked it up at a swap meet and no one knew what it was, looked like a neat novelty, had no idea what it was until I did some research. Probably the closest thing to a gold pan RC10 I'll ever own.

Early Traxxas Stampede: Older lightly used Stampede with the weird "candy corn" painted shell. It has a few updates (modern transmission, rpm hubs with full size bearings, Talon wheels/tires). It's my only Traxxas, and of course it's a runner.

Love all the retro kits! Love to see those old kits being restored.

Been tempted by some of the rereleases, but really think I'll try to find an old original something from the 80s when I go started in the hobby
