Mash-up of 3 Iconic Tamiyas... Wild Willy, FAV, Sand Scorcher! I've had this idea in mind since the FAV was re-released. ***Details*** Willy custom driver = FAV body, 1 Willy arm. Had to remove right hand glove from Willy arm, and attach to FAV arm. Axial lights, painted motor and screw heads. Mesh roof grill... Took it out to a beach 20 minutes away from my house, and got some NEW BUILT photos, and then blasted the beach with it! I'd like to thank my wife who took some of the photos, drove it sometimes!, and tolerated my desire to take some nice beach shots with my Willy/FAV! We used 2 different cameras, and most of the action shots are clipped from some Slow Motion movies we filmed. :) Hope you enjoy, as I (and my wife) hiked through some nasty plants to get to this beach! If you want to look it up, it's in Davenport, Ca. USA. What if Tamiya released the 'Willy's FAV Scorcher'? Would you buy it? !!Cheers!! Skottoman

You know something, modifying the classics always seemed to me a bit of a sacrilege, but the work you did with this buggy is something very interesting. Puts a smile on my face, and I think the last picture would make a super cool TC avatar. Congrats, and thanks for sharing pictures of your custom buggy!
