This is a good little parts pack. Rare suspension wheels and a nice printed tile on the front.

Is that suspension I see there? Or poorly attached wheels? ;) cause that’s what it looks like.

Hmmm. This set might have been better with some headlights or at least something of that nature.

Had this guy when I was a kid. Cool spring-loaded suspension on both the front and rear.

Always loved this set (along with it's brother the Hook & Haul Wrecker). The suspension worked great and are wonderful little parts to own for any small off-road MOCs.

What a coincidence, just built this again yesterday and made me realise how great that suspension part was

The driver needs a mechanic, all his wheels seem to be coming off

Wow this has brought back some memories! Had this set and loved it although it's making me feel old seeing it was released 30 years ago ??

Huh, I had one of those suspension pieces that... must have come from one of the boxes of parts that I picked up second-hand when I was a kid. Never knew what set it came from... kinda cool to see them in their original context here ^^

Will Huwbot's algorithm automatically update to allow 2009 sets to show up? Or will the real Huw have to change it manually?

I still got a few other suspension wheel cars from the old Town days.

The wheels got really squeaky however.
