I recently picked up a Tyco R/C Pontiac radio controlled car made by Taiyo in Singapore. The car is blue and red with silver rims. The stickers are 43, Oil Treatment, STP and others. I cant find it on the internet. I have the remote and it works. Any info you may have on it would be great. Thank you.
►reply: You could look for vintage taiyo rc cars to find similar cars.

I recently found a NON-FALL MYSTERY BEACH BUGGY at a second hand store. Its missing both headlights, and hood ornament. Does anyone know where I can find these to aid in the restoration of this awesome collectible?
►reply: That will be difficult! Maybe try to find another one for parts? Search for example on this website for: Taiyo buggy and maybe one will pop up.
