In 1981, I was just 13 years old and always had the latest Tamiy RC catalog under my pillow to dream about. The catalog was already torn apart by the many after a short time. In this catalog a mountain ascent of the Grossglockner in Austria with the new Tamiya Hilux was described in great detail, which fascinated me infinitely and did not let loose. I always dreamed of owning a 58028 once, unfortunately this failed because of the money. The Hilux was always my hero, in which I could reinterpret my childish thirst for adventure. Only in 1986 with 18 years I could buy with the Bruiser, the Hilux did not exist anymore. However, my passion for the 58028 never left me.

Today I am proud to own some of them.
Here's my first Hilux I got in amazing shape. The box is not faded, no blister is cracked or broken. The tires in deep black without talc. The kit has been stored for decades perfectly and is in perfect condition. Unfortunately, the outer carton has two cracks and the carton under the transmission is ripped open by the weight.
Everything else is just perfect.
Thank you, that dreams come true.

Wow very lucky that you have several NIB ones.
I too seen few of the Hilux in window display of hobby shops in my early teens when on vacation with my parents driving around Europe. Same thing could never afford one back then and even a NIB one today ...sigh. Enjoy your treasure and the good feeling your childhood dreams come true,
