For a while now I have been looking for something to take to the beach this summer for a good bashing. I had placed bids on ebay for a variety of cars without any sucess, and then this Sand Scorcher turned up in France.
At first I didn't pay it much attention because I expected it to be very popular, plus I would be at work when the auction finished and prefer to place my highest bid as an auction ends; proxy bidding doesn't work for me.
Anyway, it didn't attract many bids and failed to reach the seller's reserve, achieving a maximum bid of only £93. I contacted the seller to see if we could do a deal. A week passed with no word, but finally he made contact and, after exchanging a few emails, a deal was done; £170, including a spare bodyshell. I need a transmitter and reciever for it but I'm really pleased :-)
I absolutley love it, not quite as much as my wife, but it's close! I'm sure you understand ;-)

Very nice, a clean example indeed. Nice little front bars too. Is that a painted rear cage or is it something different?
