Yennora Hobbies near Sydney in Australia was just one of many great, old hobby shops that have disappeared over the years. And I really miss those places.
Tyco Racin’ Hoppers were little slot car miniatures of the famous Tyco Turbo Hopper R/C buggy.
Popping wheelies was all the rage in the early 1980s, and this little R/C Volkswagen Beetle from Radio Shack (made by Nikko) was among the cutest R/C wheelie cars.
A nice book about collecting Volkswagen toys… that sadly excludes the very best Volkswagen toys of all time.
The toy that first started my interest in R/C cars… the Jeep Renegade was a lovely, scale Jeep R/C model that was built to last.
Welcome to R/C Toy Memories.
