good eyes badboy, actually this car hadnt been run in about 20 years, so both wheels fell off by the end. i carried it back to my car and slid one axle on and left the other one like this and took the pic. i have put new tires and rims on it now and assure you every thing is ok now.

it is basically how the original owner left it. i did a little detail work to it to make it more scale. if you want to see how i got it and its history, follow the link below.

If you are talking about the tire tread it is in the correct direction. They look backwards but actually are cupped to scoop more sand. Check an old Grasshopper (or similar Tamiya buggy that uses the same tires) manual.

Nice pics C. I like that simple color combo, gonna keep it that way?

thanks guys, those beach pics are about 6 months old. i have changed the wheels and tires since then. here is an updated pic, all is correct. we can all sleep easy now.



when i got it i removed about $80 worth of stickers,lol, and left just the ones on the doors. i cleaned it up a little painted the chrome trim and touched up the paint. left most of the chips,dings and cracks, thought they added character.
so this is how it will stay.
