And the Porsche 935 Turbo from Tandy/Radio Shack was a very nice, large model that many still remember, based on one of the world’s most dominant racing machines in the late 70s and early 80s.
An early, extremely rare Volkswagen Beetle off-roader that relatively few people have either seen or heard of (let alone owned), from the mysterious, low-volume early years of the great Kyosho Corporation.
But it’s a model likely to interest a great many VW toy collectors.
The last Tandy stores were closed or rebranded quite recently in Australia. But many will remember Tandy as the place they got their first R/C car…among a wide variety of other electronic gadgets and toys.
Tandy was truly a great destination for Christmas toy shopping back in the 1980s and early 1990s.
Call it naivety or call it greed. But some sellers of vintage R/C items appear to be laboring under the misapprehension that what they’re selling is worth a fortune, when in fact the true value is a fraction of their asking price.
So what is the actual market value of something? And how can you avoid being ripped off?
