I'll try to make a long story short. I am always seeing lucky fellows on the club coming across great finds and good deals..I finally got mine. Last week I had seen a 58003 P34 Six Wheeler on ebay...I brought an end to the auction and bought the car out right...very good price. About two days later I see the same person has a Ligier and a Ralt RT2 up on the bay. Low starting bids...cars were clean looking in the pics. I win them both ...very cheaply. Couldn't believe no one bid. Before I hopped in my truck to go to the grocery, I text the guy (he's in California-he had sent me pics of the Elf so I had his number) and ask him to combine shipping. Well as I'm driving into the store lot, I get a text back..'Hey, I have a Porsche RSR 934 I'll throw in there and ship the whole mess to you' I said send me pics of the Porsche and let me know what you are asking (thinking no way can I afford that)...he send the pics- its unfinished, never used and a price...$125...I had to pull the truck over and let it sink in, no joking...I said SOLD!!!...ok..so..the next day he texts to say he appreciated the business and I as well..He says 'I stuck some extra stuff in the box for you'..not telling anything. Well it arrives...Box lids, posters, he gave me a 1/12 Tyrrell model! on top of that, DECALS and extra parts for the Porsche, decals for the Ligier, manuals...an old futaba radio that was very clean...in fact all the models were in unused but dusty condition. SUPER nice guy, worked at a hobby shop (Sheldon's) in San Jose CA. when he was a teenager..had these in storage ever since...wow So my total on everything? $515....I'm very happy. (The Datsun model was not part of the stuff..I just had it resting there.)

Wow, what a great story. Finding just one of those cars in such great condition would be very exciting but finding four of them is unreal. Congrats.

Thanks guys for the great compliments. lol..I have a couple buddies that are trying to figure out how spending 515 dollars is a great find. I'm tired of explaining. @SB..All B@$t@rds get thrown a bone eventually! The Ligier needs mirrors and the Ralt is missing one mirror. The Porsche is in new/exccellent condition but the windows are new but scuffed up from years of being in a little box of other parts..SO..if anyone has any of those items let me know!

That's the kind of story I like.We all are gold seekers and somethimes it just happend.Those moments are magic.Last week a won on the bay a Yamaha round the world sailyacht,2 TGX 1/8 Nismos Penzoil a 2 chanel radio and a brand new 4 channel futaba for ... 100 €.Everything was used only one time and are as new.No paypal and shipping possibilities but the guy lived 20 min from my home so enjoy this magical feeling and congrats

Wow pcw, 20 minutes from home...you saved on shipping!...THanks for the compliment, yes I did invest but it was minimal for all I received. Never thought I would own an RSR mostly for cost reasons.
