He's Baaaaaaaaaaaack!!! Hello everyone. Did you miss me?!
Ok, So I have been into R/Cs since I was 8. My father bought me my first serious R/C. It was a used Tamiya Ligier Matra CS.
I raced it on the streets until I crashed it and could not fix it (according to the local hobby shop). That was well over 30 years ago! I kept the car for about 5 years and about 25 years ago I finally threw it away...I know, I know...ouch. What really hurts is that the part that was broken was one of the uprights.
Anyway...I got back into the hobby about 17 years ago and about 10 years ago I went silent. This year I am going to get back int o it! I need to clear out most of my older Tamiya collection to get into new projects. I'm into some vintage Tamiya, very into gold pan Associated RC10s and original RC10Ts, and have stalled on expanding my vintage Traxxas collection. I need to refocus my efforts into what I appreciate most, My RC10s and my older Tamiyas that have not been re-re'd.
As far as I go, I am now a Director of Sales for a packaging equipment manufacturing company. With my job, I am afforded the opportunity to travel the world - South America, Central America, North America, and most of Europe. I remarried 11-1/2 years ago and I am still extremely happy! I have four very beautiful and smart kids that are growing up very quickly. Most of my collection has been collecting dust these last few years. Time to finally get things in order in my shop. I say this time and time again, but this time, It will happen. If there are any parts or cars you are looking for, please let me know. I probably have parts for it, and in most cases, the parts are new! I may even be able to get it closer to you without having to ship internationally or even meet in person...maybe, lol. Cheers!
