I personally know some people who are maniac about rc vintage cars. So far so that they have made it a mission of their life to collect these vintage radio controlled cars. They go through a lot of pain to collate all those broken parts, toil hard to join them and then come up with an adorable vintage rc model car. People I know always had such beautiful stories to tell about their vintage cars and all that with a lot of passion. But alas most of those stories end up without reaching the rc vintage cars enthusiasts world over.

Our sole effort here is to get in as much information as possible about various vintage rc cars. You can help us get in more information on vintage cars. Please submit any of your vintage rc car pictures or stories to preserve the history on this web page.
