Default latest addition to the fleet

hi vintage buffs the latest addition to the ever increasing fleet of vehicles

most of you will know immediately what it is !! I guess bumper and rear wing are not original but its been lightly run over its life

Mr BORMAC (Jason) will be smiling as its one of his faves from yesteryear
apologies for pics im no david bailey
regards dave

Nice Viper Bumper's not so bad but you definitely need to do something about that rear wing!

Yeah Baby.....

Awesome Dave. Welcome to the first TRF buggy that Tamiya did. I still think this has to be one of the best looking buggies.

Nice one Dave......
