I remember in summer of 2000 I bought a red super rebound and it just stopped working so i took it back and bought a green one. I still have it int the garage.

I also remember the assasin, they made that then also a hummer with orange tiger stripe paint scheme and another truck with the mutator body called the fugitive

yeah that f150 is actually my brothers...another toy my mom kept to give, to son that wasn't even born yet! but it is fast for a new bright, it can contend with the mutator

i got my mutator a few years ago at an auction, i thought it looked sweet so my mom bid on it since i was in school, and i got it and then it just sat in a toy box until this past year.

yes the fugative, there was one on ebay a few months back but i forgot to bid on it.

yeah, i don't really like pontiacs, but i do like some. i would love to help some one rebuild a car, or help iin a shop to get an idea and know my way around cars.

all i can do is rotate tires, change brakes and rotors, change the oil, and put in after market radios( but that is rough), oh and wash em

Yeah auto restoration is down, i left the shop in feb of 2009 because the economy took it way down then I started the toyota shop. At the same time I had a 96 Viper GTS blue with white stripes and sold it to start up the shop


Ive had 3 syclones, a ton of corvettes and other cars but as of now im just down to the Syclone and a 69 corvette 427 t-top 4 speed #'s matching car


New bright started making the 2wd platform in 96. Before that they made the 4wd platform from 93-95 with a jeep or syclone body. I have the 4wd one in a green jeep body. Its the only one I have ever seen anywhere period

i'm excited to see all these cars that i missed out on, you better got the pictures up this weekend haha.

so did you specialize in toyota vehicles at one point? and that is why your shop is toyota. if not why not just call it the kings shop? haha

Im definitely gonna post the collection this weekend.


I never specialized in toyotas before I opened the shop just knew them well. I did however build the fastest MR2 before tho haha. Its called the 4runner house because I sell parts and repair for toyota 4runner and pickup trucks only. For a while I was tempted to turn it into a half rc shop too, this I could call it king rc haha

Yeah thats the one, I believe thats the picture from top gear.

I have only owned collectable american cars but have a soft spot for ferraris and lamborghinis, none of which I will probably ever own. That ferrari actually has a big block chevy motor with twin 98mm turbos, some people whined about it not having a ferrari motor but hey, its the fastest one in the world so it has all right. I still have the bonneville tires from it in my shed

Has anyone come across a Tyco Recoil 4x4 truck?? Im having a hard time finding anything about this truck, looks pretty sweet, but I need more info. Not sure how old it is and I need a remote (27mhz) Truck has 4 fixed position wheels (front dont turn side to side), more like the Mutators tires. It uses 6.0v turbo jet pack.  Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!

Basically what you have is a 6.0v rebound that stays on one side that is a monster truck using an eliminator style body
