    Firecrackers...gasoline....matches...you name it....me and my buddies used to destroy them on a regular basis. However, I do have a few that survived the rath of my misguided youth.

    I had a large collection years ago but when the resale value got so stupid I sold them off to help pay other bills in life. Kept just a few like 30.

  20. HEH! Small world. I used to watch the Ghoul as well, back in the early 70s, on UHF channel 61 and it's partly his fault that I no longer have my old models and had to start over. And yeah, I never grew up. :cool: :D

  22. It happens when one lives a life where moving around is the norm. I've built hundreds and hundreds since 1957 but all have been dispatched, given away, tossed, or lost. Be sure to find the TRAK on the "net....The HAMB of Traditional Hot Rod and Custom Model cars.....If you don't already know the place, you're in for an amazing treat.....:)
     

  23. ummm im interested
     
  24. Where did they go? Here's a hint (thanks Ron Sweed) :cool:

    Boom! Boom! Boom!

    I have the remains of one, including the box and the T-shirt iron on. The car itself is pretty rough with a broken frame. Best for parts, unless you want to do a bunch of fabricating in 1/25 scale!

    When my two oldest were age 4 and 2 they found them stored in the spare bedroom and decided they'd be fun to play with. Took about 4 dozen out of their boxes and pretty much destroyed them.
    I was mad enough that I couldn't deal with them, so the wife took care of the kids. Now over 35 years later my oldest still remembers I was mad enough to NOT punish him. :)
    Pretty funny now, looking back.
