PostSubject: Ebay is BAD....!   Fri Jan 29, 2010 3:30 pm

After a very long time i went on ebay. Never bought anything in the past but recently started using paypal for my 1:1 car parts like wheels etc.

Its so bloody addictive..!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I check ebay for Tamiya parts all the time. So i want & some tempted to buy even if i dont want it. Ooooooo so tempting ..................!

My all time favorite kit to own for ols time sake. Majority of them are kits i wanted as growing up as a kid.

1- Team Associated original gold tub RC10.
2- Tamiya Porsche 1/12 scally rally car. (Dont know the code)
3- Tamiya Hilux 58086 (The same chassis as the Kingcab) Have a complete running chassis with lot od spares already. But just want a NIB.
4- NIB Tamiya FF01 & FF02
5- NIB Original Blackfoot.
6- NIB Kyosho Optima Mid 4wd buggy.

When i look at the gallery section of www.tamiyaclub.com members. With there 100 plus kit collection. I feel my 13 car collection is SAD.

BTW Note to self.................... not much is possible when u have a 3 year old son (who also loves cars ...i know its in the blood) . All my stuff is so well hidden (in 5 different locations) that sometimes i cant find what i'am looking for.

To an extent that when i'am looking for something i find somthing else that i never knwo i had.

Need a bigger house..........! With a basement very happy

I have a 'MAN CAVE' ...my spare room is where my gym kit, XBOX360 and RC cars reside....

I will keep an eye out for your kits, I know a lot of the guys on Tamiyaclub, and have been a member there for about 5 years. Sometimes they offer things to me that otherwise end up on ebay...

I recall an episode from 'Everybody Loves Raymond' when he too craved for a man cave. Then ones of his friends tell him about 'self storage' where u can rent a garage sides room as well. In one of the shots they show that every one of those 'self storage' is used as a guys den for the passions. One chap converted it into a Star Trek shrine....! Funny......

A good man cave is important. In Australia we have shed's where we store all our important things and do 'stuff'. I miss my shed.

I found this vid on drive arabia. It's not about a man cave, but maybe it can give you man cave dreamers some hope...... don't give up on your dream, one day you will get there.

The real dream of any car enthusiast is to have a home with a garage. This 87-year-old man from Belgium manages to have just that, even if his car is just an old Fiat Panda.

Yes I do,.....but I wouldn't dare drive it.....I want one to trash smile Now that I know I can get spares....

I think they have released a ball-diff for it too.....might have to get one....

Whilst I was shopping, I got a few more batteries as well, can never have too many of those...

And some more bearings....and some more spurs...you know....the little stuff that you only miss once its gone...

LOL, victims....we are all victims...

Sam, I was offered a built FF02 yesterday, it is the Alfa Romeo 156. Built but never run, body in box art with all manuals, unused parts and the original box....guy wanted 90 pounds excl shipping...

seems like a fair price for a runner..would probably cost US$40 to ship but you would get it here for under US$180...I may be able to negotiate a little more of his price...

Good price! I assume it has ben run before? Even so, because of the mini-affiliation, parts should be easy to come by...

It was despatched from HK yesterday, should see it here in a week...I will probably get it, and not build it....I will just sit and stare at the blister packs...they dont make em like they used to.

I might sell one of the originals I have here, possibly the Ford Ranger, keep one original 1979 model, get a new one in its box and a third that will get THUMPED...LOL

I will bring it to the rally meets and haul it around how its supposed to go....or on the beach!
