Recently rescued this original release Midnight Pumpkin from someone that didn't want it anymore. Speed control has been upgraded to a Tamiya ESC and LED's added to the headlights. Not a bad paint job/theme, just have to fix a chip of paint missing in the hood really.

Nice find, @Jeepy2013!   These Pumpkins are so much fun to look at.    I don't have an actual Midnight Pumpkin, but I have a CW01 Unimog and it's a blast driving that thing over jumps and all.  :D   Have fun.

Was able to get a few things done on the Pumpkin yesterday. Replaced the notorious broken axle springs, mixed up some paint touched up the big chip on hood, updated the radio from Am to a FlySky GT2B and made some adjustments to the steering links. 

Back up and running now! B)

Really like the paint on this thing, very 90s.  Red headlights are cool as well.  Never had a Pumpkin, might have to get one.  Always liked it a bit more than the Lunchbox with that cool 50s Ford body.

Very nice!  Lucky to find one without the rear lights snapped off!
