Craigslist Score!!

About 2 weeks ago, I put an ad on Craigslist looking for older Tyco RCs.  The very next day I got my one and only response, from a young guy who was willing to sell off his old RC toys.  They toys were at his mother’s house, less than a mile from me, so I scooped them up in minutes!

Clockwise from left: Nikko Thunderbolt, Tyco Fast Traxx Pickup, Radio Shack Street Sprinter, Tyco Aero Turbo Hopper

I got this lot for $75, which I thought was fair.  The lot included a Tyco Fast Traxx Pickup, a Tyco Aero Turbo Hopper, a Nikko Thunderbolt, and a Radio Shack Street Sprinter.  All of the cars needed TLC, I’ll have more on their individual restorations soon.  In the meantime, I’m trying to learn everything I can about these little guys.


About nixzero

I'm a (nearly) 30 year old AZ native, and all you really need to know about me is that I am a sort of "nerd-of-all-trades". I have a lot of different interests. Many of these interests are hobbies, meaning that I have toys that cost a lot of money, take hours to build/fix, and break in minutes. As of this writing I don't really have a focus for the blog outside of sharing information about my hobbies. In most hobbies, collecting information is just as important as collecting itself, so I'm hoping this will allow me to share what I've found with others and vice-versa. I don't really read blogs so if mine looks janky or the content is random and sporadic, I'm not surprised. I would be surprised, however, if people actually read this. :P View all posts by nixzero
