Bought my first car when I was 14 (1984) after spending 2 long years drooling at the Tamiya box-arts in the window of Morley Models. After saving up my milk round money I bought the only one I could afford . . . a Grasshopper. After losing interest a couple of years later due to the usual distractions (girls, motorcycles & beer) I got back into the hobby a few years ago. I've had a few cars since then, some Tamiya and some others, but finally decided to stick with my beloved Tamiyas!
