South Worcester

Where you get that Gaucho from? I rarely see Peg Perego around Mass let alone Gauchos.

I have 7 right now:
2xharleys
2xJeep (Blue and Barbie Tunes)
X-Treme Machine
John Deere Peg - Old Style
Dumar Yamaha Raptor

Blue Jeep and Deere are in pretty good condition, EM needs front tires, the harleys and barbie were free hauls from Worcester and Framingham)but they work, nothing broken! Kids are loving rotating around "the fleet".

Got his first on craigslist for 15 they called it "battery car" it was an A151 with real disc brakes, cleaned the switches and it was gtg, got the Rockin' on craigslist in Malden for 30 it was in perfect condition except it need a new gear drive, which the A151 gladly gave up since my 3 y/o could not quite grasp the brake concept yet. My pride of the fleet is the Power Drive Chevy 1500, second most expensive one we have bought, and definately the farthest traveled for.

No cars here, best place is keep checking Craigslist that I've found.

I've been picking up Freebies only now though.

Heading up to NH this weekend!

There was a Gaucho for $25 in Sterling last week, someone beat me to it though, but got a Gator on freecycle, so it was not a bad week.

Do you have good luck hunting in NH?

Wasnt there hunting, just a vacation. Was responding to jbezio who said they were from NH.

Where did you see the Gaucho? CraigsList or Freecycle? I find freecycle just has too much stuff to sift through and doesnt update like CL does.

Just started on a Little Tikes Hummer 2 Red w/ stock lift kit... pics very soon. She's obviously literallycted to New England's worst since probably new... UV fade here and there, seatbelts are literally crumbling into dust, radio is MIA, decals are really bad, except for the windshield... No idea if she's operational yet...

Hi, I'm in Natick. Everything started with a visit to Richard's Perego hall of fame a few weeks ago while looking for a Gaucho. I scored my first one in CT a week later. great shape but needed new gearbox.

Now I just picked up a Hurricane that needs some loving too: gearbox, tires and radio. Does any one have any of that? Richard?

Hi I'm from worcester area. Been lurking for a while. I have an 18v arctic cat red and I think I blew both motors as my brilliant idea of sitting on it to move it failed wonderfully. I bit off a bit more than I could chew and removed the wiring from my switch selector and the switches. My voltage readings are all over the place and I am afraid I will burn out any new motors I put in since I may not have wired correctly. Any locals willing to trade wiring pictures or recommendations? Thanks!

In Saugus,MA.
just bought my 4year old his first. The dodge police car used off Craigslist for $80. Everything works except does not have the megaphone and there is a clicking if my son turn to much to the right. Thinking of doing the battery mod that's what put me on to this forum. It looks fairly easy. I figure just to add a six volt. 18v should be fine for the motors or should I think about upgrading those??? Any help appreciated

Can anyone give advice on how to upgrade a kid tax dodge police car for more speed I see those motors on mltoys.com and I have questions before I purchase. I want to go 18v or 24v but I have no clue about pinions or tooth. Do I need to upgrade gearbox if I go to 18v????
If I do get new motors and gearbox what else do I need to do to get them connected??? Any help is appreciated.
