Quite a bit - but no time for any off it.... @ denotes currently working on or using.

@ Tamiya Super Sabre RC car - 1988 just restored over xmas with my son.

A lost project of a 1961 Austin A40 Mk2 - sitting in a friends garage for the last 6 years. Loads of Geneva brochures from the 60's too.

Retro Household etc - @ Original Bush 1960's radio {like the one they re-issued}, Mission Impossible style mini reel2reel Tape deck, 3 super projectors and a camera, and 3 old singer sewing machines [ I used to make kites]

Retro Hifi Audiolab 8000a, Mission 751's, technics tape deck , still waiting to find a Systemdeck II

@ Lots of inherited Hornby train stuff [dublo and modern] and added to for my sons.

- something to do with approaching 40 my wife says :(

A few years back I even bought my wife some 1960's Vogue magazines and at the same time very nearly bought myself a '71 vintage Mayfair magazine, but then realised maybe that is a step too far.

now I'm really jealous, those tamiyas are lovely, here's mine...

Originally a Super sabre but I changed the body in 1990 to a Thundershot, most of it is nos now from parts I bought cheap back then and fitted this year, the shocks are Boomerang ones but I still have the red sabres.

Need a new bumper and wheels.... and some lovely alu gearbox cases if you have any spare :D

That's a nice buggy, have a look on the bay for bits or take a gander over on tamiyaclub.com :wink:

If I'd known that you were looking for bits a few months ago, I basically gave away a complete but stripped Thunder Dragon, which is the same chassis (kind of). It had almost perfect wheels and a good bumper. too. :roll:
