This story starts 25 years ago. I was 8 years old and my parents took me on a trip to London to visit my uncle and aunty, it was a 6 hour trip on a train from Scotland. On my visit my uncle took me to Hamleys toy store where i saw a wild willy for the very first time and thought it was the best thing i had ever seen!!! Ok i was young and easily impressed ha ha. So now ive been looking for 1 for ages bid on loads on e-bay but always got outbid at the last moment, but finally i managed to win this 1 and it arrived today, got it for £130 and im well happy. My plan is to get it cleaned up give it a few runs then restore it and keep as a shelf queen, so if anyone has any parts the want to sell on please get in touch.
