View Full Version : My $2 Garage Sale Find...

05-09-2008, 10:47 AM
While on the way out to dinner last Saturday I happened across this on a table on the side of the road at a yard/garage sale... Did a quick turn around and pulled up and asked how much... $2 was the answer and now its here at my house needing a good cleaning and a new battery... Just like the first R/C I ever owned or raced back in the day... What do you think???

Un-f:censor:ing-believable :blink:

That is one heck of a find. :nice: The body alone is worth $20 bucks.

I really have to start looking at garage sales more

Man I love watching some of the older race videos of BF's bashing around track. Running something that was at least similar to real trucks. It all kinda reminds me of nascar from the start until now.

Good score :nice:

Wanna sell it? :lol:

I hear you're supposed to take things you want to sell and take about 50% of the original price of it and ask for that. So I can send $1 paypal where? Nice find, the body even looks in good condition!

That's one smoking deal:nice:

I could really get down on a $2 BlackFoot! That was my first Tamiya truck and 2nd Tamiya RC.

Excellent score!

you make me:puke:! Just kidding, nice find. I never find any good deals. All I ever found was my complete bruiser w/radio that had been in an attic for 20 something years for a hundred dollars, or that blazen blazer roller at a pawn shop for fifty dollars. But I never have see anything that cool at a garage sale, and I have seen alot of garage sales. Dang ,for two bucks , you scored good!

lucky you.

Looks like I need to start hitting up the yard sales.

for 2 bucks even if it was junked and mostly missing it was one heck of a score.the fact that its not makes it an unbelievably good deal!

06-24-2008, 12:00 PM
looks like it had not been driven since the 80's!!

06-24-2008, 12:00 PM
i would pay 2$ for just the tires!
