    Default Old Lego Sets

    It was a wet weekend, just gone, and as my son is lego mad, I dug out one of my old childhood technic sets from the 80s now he's a little older.
    It's been in it's box for about 30yrs and amazingly was only missing two pieces, despite having been dropped a few times, and several house moves. We scrounged replacements from other kits very easily.

    Set 8860 - Car Chassis - from about 1980, back on it's wheels in 2016.

    I love the Lego Technic series. I've got this one that I bought last year but haven't gotten round to building yet.

    Looks like a great set. Some of the newer ones are incredible with their motors and actuators.

    Three years later I've finally started building it!

    I can remember when Lego was just a bunch of bricks and you made of it what you would...
    Time flies like the wind, fruit flies like bananas - go figure!

    I remember those old sets. For some reason I liked the gray rubber wheels that came with them.

    Not Lego Technic but I scored this box of 80s Lego Space and Knights from a charity shop a while back for $20 (with a guest At-AT Driver bonus):



    Saving this till my boys are old enough not to eat it.

    My late father was a bricklayer and I am certain that he used to get a huge buzz building houses out of Lego on Sunday mornings - I am sure that it made him feel nostalgic about his former occupation!

    The Lego was originally bought for me as a six year old, you understand, but my father couldn't help having a go himself.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).
