Tamiya Toyota Hilux 4×4 Pick Up Video

While looking through some YouTube videos of vintage RC cars I came across the Blazing Blazer I posted earlier.  And I just found these videos of the original Tamiya Toyota Hilux 4×4.  These are model # 58028 released by Tamiya in Nov 1981. Original Tamiya video showing multiple RC trucks pulling a real truck and […]

Tamiya 4×4 Blazing Blazer

This is a great video of the Tamiya 4×4 Blazing Blazer RC model #58029 from 1982.  In the comments they said the only thing changed were the springs, from a Tamiya Ford 350 Hi-Lift.

This is an awesome Jeep toy and figure! It is not the normal metal Jeep toy that you associate the Tonka name with, but still just as awesome. Check out the 70’s graphics and quick disconnect tires. Did it come with another set of tires?

Is This Chimpanzee Smarter Than The Average Jeep Owner?

I was going to make some smart ass remark about Jeep owners, but then realized I own a Jeep…Regardless, this is an incredible set of photos. The Willys toy is an interesting unit. I like the side bumpers that even go out around the tires! I assume that this was used on a TV show and “Hero” is the chimpanzee. Can any of our readers help us out with more information?

1/9th Scale 1967 Dodge Fargo Sweptline Power Wagon

Last year, we featured a custom radio control 67-72 Ford Bumpside Ford truck. Today, we have a hand built radio control 1967 Dodge Fargo Sweptline Power Wagon truck. We are serious when we say it was hand made. The wood body and driver are hand carved. The chassis is homemade from wood and aluminum. It uses Axial axles and shafts and RC4WD transmission, rims and reduced tires. A GCM transfer case and 18.5 Novak goat esc and motor wrap up the drivetrain. I still cannot believe that the body is hand carved! What an incredible job! Make sure to check out the video below!

Matchbox Releases 1st Generation Toyota 4Runner Toy

Matchbox recently suprised us by releasing a 1st generation Toyota 4Runner to it’s lineup. The new 4Runner toy is a great copy of the 1985-1989 Toyota 4Runner. The toy colors and striping are very close to those of the original and the tires are proportional to the vehicle size, unlike the Matchbox size toys with monster truck tires. However, the chrome interior leaves a little to be desired. What do you think? Would you pick one up if you saw it at the local store?
