Nice classic fire truck... I remember having that one...
I had that truck too.
Does anyone recall the old (20 years ago) town Bike shop? It was yellow. It was one of my first "town" sets.
Also, to you super Lego people. Is there away to get the old build scheets? I would love to rebuild that bike shop.
I grew up on Legos from the early 80's. I saved most of them which is well over two large garbage bags full. This thread has inspired me to get them out and start building again....at the age of 34. I have a 4 month old boy who will eventually inherit my blocks.
The lion does not concern himself with the opinion of the sheep.
Finally got some pics up of what I still have out on display in my office.
Got this one when it was just released back in the day, and found it in my parents attic about a year ago.
Bought this one about 5 years ago off Bricklink when I stumbled upon it. I think I got it for like $150 new in box from Germany. The stickers got mucked up sitting at work. I sourced a new sheet of stickers that I need to put on.
Got this one about a year ago off Bricklink as well. Been wanting it for a few years now. Mainly to see if I can't understand transmissions a lil bit more. Fun build and the 5 speed with reverse is pretty neat.
Lastly, stumbled upon a thread in TCL probably a year and a half ago that showed a youtube link of this build. I was instantly sold on the idea. After some research and about $300 of lego expense on Brick Link I finally was able to source all the necessary parts, and do so in a some what consistent color scheme. Kinda went for the Ferrari theme. I have the Lego CAD of this build if anyone is interested.
I've got a ton of stuff still in my parents attic. About once a year I get a big urge to buy a new set. I've been starting to have the urge to buy the Technic Space Shuttle off Bricklink. We'll see how that transpires
love this thread!! damn i wish i had all my legos... i miss them so much and to buy new ones today are rediculously expensive!! wtf?! they are plastic bricks why are they so damn pricey?!

Yes, and it is sad that it had already been demolished. but the bricks were donated afterwards i believe.
i'm still in shock about the house, everyone's building skills,this thread....the list can go on.
Ooooohhhhhh nooooooo... between this thread and helping my friend move his entire lego setup into his basement (he's 50 btw, and has an entire "colony" that takes up a whole room...) I'm going to get absolutely no work done on my jetta... the good news is I'll probably be posting some pics soon though.
