I dug through my old magazines and other materials, to gather together some rarely seen photographs of famous racing drivers messing about with R/C cars, mainly from the 1980s.

R/C Toy Memories is a nostalgia blog run by a long-time collector.
If you grew up with R/C cars sometime between the late 1970s and early 1990s, then you're sure to find something fun to read about here. I also write about other retro toys sometimes. Feel free to look around, and please leave a comment beneath any article if you have a memory to share.
