In my humble opinion, this is the best ever VAM vehicle, I had one as a kid in the 60's, my Mum and Dad got me it for Christmas I think it was 1968, I loved it, that vehicle took way too much punishment, just superb.
I finally managed to get a boxed one about 12 years ago for..............25 quid.............yep 25..............amazing......such sweet memories it brought back.
Today it is priceless for me, it's all about the memories, thanks Mum, thanks Dad.

Sir Sid ( feeling nostaglic }...........................( and blessed )

£26 Dal pmsl..........Sorry Sirsidney.
It's a great vehicle & you are so very lucky to have one. Especially at £25 !! Boxed too , that's just plain old greedy my friend. Then you already know that from having a statetrooper & more than 1 air cadet.
Jealous?.......Me?..........You don't know the half of it lol.

Sometimes you read a post and it feels like you actually wrote it yourself!

'In my humble opinion, this is the best ever VAM vehicle'......Yes!

'I had one as a kid in the 60's, my Mum and Dad got me it for Christmas I think it was 1968'...Yes!,

'I loved it'...yes!

'that vehicle took way too much punishment'...Yes!

'just superb'...abso-bloody-lootly!!

My new replacement cost me £40 not £25 but I think it's worth every penny!



Parked next to my new minty Ebay one is the beloved one from my childhood. 'way too much punishment' doesn't begin to describe what this vehicle went through. My younger cousins even rode it down the street a few times! It carried my troops into battle, explored strange alien planets and even doubled as a (very leaky) boat a few times!

Best VAM vehicle ever..couldn't have put it better myself Sir Sid!

I should get 1st refusal on the State Trooper Sirsidney. I did live in Canada you know & my daughter is still there . So the postage from your house to hers would be minimal!
Plus also Mr Dan has one , Kitbash I know but no one needs 2 now do they. lol.
