description  So I always drooled over the Vanning back in the day! It was the baddest 1/8 Nitro 4WD buggy at the time! I would spend so much time looking at the Tower Hobbies Catalog and trying to some how figure out how to afford one. Well it never happened back then. Fast forward many years and I got one. It was in decent shape when I got it from Ebay. It just needed some TLC and some new paint and decals on the roll cage. Unfortunately I will be selling this, I just need the space and cash for other projects. At least I can say I have owned one in my life and it was fun fixing it up. Last 2 pictures are the before pictures.

Thanks for the tip Chris! I think I will have to try that, can't make it any worse.

I wonder if OCD's trick of cleaning the box with Lexol Leather cleaner would pull any of that off??? I know, sounds ludicrous, but I have done it to the white Tamiya boxes and it cleans simple dirt off them, no harm no foul

LOL! Yes amazingly it does fit inside the original box. And no I got it with the over spray, it's a shame because the box is in decent condition.

that GIANT car came out of that box??? You don't see that everyday. I wonder, did you overspray the box?

Now I'm having second thoughts about selling it LOL. I think maybe I will try and find some other stuff to sell.

My favorite vintage nitro buggy as well. This one looks in very good condition and complete. These other projects must be really important to you if you selling this Vanning for them... Anyways, congrats on a great edition(albeit short) addition to your collection.
