    Here is a Picture of one of my vintage Tamiya Frog's. I just got this won with plans to use it as another runner, but it turned out to be all original, very hardly used and super-clean with a really nice custom painted body, so I am going to make it another shelf queen, which is ok since I have three more Frogs, if anyone wants to see pics of my others, please let me know and I will post them.

    The car is in really good shape, it looks as if it was used only two or three time as and has been stored ever since. The rear tires has a couple of cracks in them to indicate that they have been sitting in one position for a long time also, which is too bad because they are not waorn down at all and very hard to find in this condition. They is the original balloon around the mechanical speed controller, it is dry rotted also, it must have been stored in a dry, hot environment.The wheels themselves are still white and not yellowed and are in mint condition, very hard to find like this. The rear suspension has shocks but the front does not, making these cars a little bouncy,there are vintage aftermarket front shocks avalible, but they dont look that great to me.It came with the original Futaba stick controller which is also in great shape and dosent look used either. I havent got the car running yet, but I am sure it will work, but I probably wont bother as it will sit on a shelf any way. I only paid $42 for on ebay because the seller listed it as a "Futaba Car",so alot of people must have passed the auction by thinking it was an FX10. I figure that is worth at least $100 to $150 in this condition as I have seen the lexan bodies in this shape gor for $30 to $55 on ebay by themselves. I am enclosing a couple of more pics for you to see. Thanks for the interest.

    Here are pics of some more of my cars, Three are Frogs, one is in a 69 Camaro body and is fully modified with thorp tranny and dogbones and CRP front and rear bumpers and skidplate, as well as blackfoot rims with superwide street tires, all three have Novak Cyclone or Rooster speed controls.Believe it or not I just bought another Frog on Ebay yesterday, the deal was too good to pass up, brings my Total number of frogs up to Five. There also is my rare vintage Bandai Madwolf, not the original body or wing but still looks good, was mint when I got it. Last is my Traxxas Bandit, I just put in a Super Rooster no limit speed control and an 11 Turn Orion motor, I can wait to try it out. All my cars run on Airtronics FM Radio System.

    "man now i have a new love. old rc cars. they are really nice"

    I know me too, but be careful, it's addicting, you'll end up with twelve cars like me.


    "yeah there good But i like the new cars more than the old cars NO OFFENCE OLD OWNERS"

    True, the new cars are faster and handle better, but the old cars have way more style. I feel that the same can be said for real cars too, I like nothing better than a mid to late 1960's american muscle car. I used to have a hopped up 1969 Ford Mustang coupe.
