Nice...did you use Krylon Hammered Finish paint on that pan? Very creative! I love it when people think outside the box-art! 8)

neither it was powder coated, my friends dad had his quad done like that, It looked cool and the price was right so i sent it off. It is a textured feel though.

As said by others, mine is a pretty close call. My Dominator is certainly an extremely close second, but the nod would have to go to my first Associated car which started it's life as a TQ10. It's been thru so many conversions over the years (mid-motor, AGI Jammer and countless Frankenstein set-ups). It's tough to tell it was ever a TQ10 as I honestly can't say if it has any original parts on it, but it's the same car to me. The tranny is as smooth as any you'll find anywhere in the world I'd say. Hard to say how many hours I've spent over the years tearing this whole car down and rebuilding it. Has to be in the 1000s. I got a lot of bad grades in school due to the time I spent working on this car! :lol: Here it is in a couple of different forms it's been in recently.

If I had to choose just one, it would probably be the one that started this obsession for me - my early 7001 RC10T. Built new from a kit, raced on both coasts, stored and once thought lost, rediscovered, restored in ~2009. They aren't shown in the photos, but I still have the original electronics as well.

With the exception of the body, wheels, tires and CVDs, it's set up exactly as it was the day of it's last race.

This Panda and a Bolink Eliminator is where it all started. Gifts from my dad who is no longer with us. This buggy gave me many hours of fun and I will always cherish it. Restored a couple years ago.

My most cherished R/C has to be my dust runner ATC. I got one back when I was 12 which got thrashed

After I started collecting I was able to score a few NIB 3 wheelers and four wheelers.

Got something today I've been trying to find for years...a NIB Raborn Invencer XT kit! And fredswain had Barry Raborn autograph the chassis for me. :mrgreen:

And my other prized possession...an uncut Parma Eagle Talon 1/10 body. I ended up getting two of them from Denmark a few years ago:

Cool, shodog! Did you see this?

I got that as a gift from my parents, who bought it in Japan when they travelled there in the 80's. I still have it, in excellent condition. Very cool, very vintage RC!
