Shocking i know but this is me about 1990 and where tamiya all started. Yes my original Hornet that has long gone. Arr the memories.

O boy can you tell its late 80's early 90's.. Just check out my get ups :).

Edit for the retro theme:

Well when I read the retro entry I immediately thought about this picture of me with my first ever Tamiya, a Hornet. To start with the car... I still remember the excitement of my dad taking me to the local car park for a burn around, plus the feel and smell of those tyres, trying to get them over the wheels OUCH!. I got it second hand and have two sets of rear bald tyres, but boy did I love changing them all the time. I mean what else can you do when you have to wait another 24 hours for your battery to charge HAHA!!!

For me the colour scheme of my cloths SCREAM retro to me, as an 80's kid these colours were just 'rad' or was that 'cowabunga dude'. Also the fact that I didnt have to do my hair like the young ladies and gents of nowa days. Back then at that age you just didn't give a hoot, it was all play play play!

For me this is essence of retro 80's :)

That's fantastic news to win the competition. I see what it takes... an embarrassing picture . Thank you to everyone who voted though, having been back in to collecting for nearly two years now I am really enjoying it. Especially all the people I come across and great conversations over something in common.
