if i can get my kids off this one ill try to sell it. i paid 50 with bad battery and no charger but its close to perfect and everything works. i think i can get at least 150 with a new battery and charger. can i take the connector out of a safety 1st battery just like the power wheel batteries?

got this last night for 30. shifter works intermittently but battery seems good. came with peg charger. the main thing it needs is wheels. i never knew how big and cool these things were. i bought it to flip but i think i might keep it if i can find some wheels cuz its pretty cool.

a short term investment payed off on these. there is a crackhead that comes by my work sometimes to sell stuff that he finds in dumpsters(brought me a dremel that was nearly new $10). i bought him a 40oz awhile back when it was over 100 degrees. i told im if he ever saw some power wheels to let me know. the dora jeep has one drive wheel that won't turn for some reason and is missing a lot of parts but the wheels are in pretty good shape. the bigfoot is actually not in horrible shape but a scrap guy must have got there before me and cut all the wires out of both of them for scrap! i might put a wiring harness from a 12v unibody jeep in it because it looks pretty cool.

yeah i really like the yellow 700. the only problem is now i want to keep it! sea_stork says he might have some wheels for me cheap so its probably going to be a keeper.

I'd say keep it. Bigger kids (7-9 year olds) can still ride on it, it is fast and durable on 18V. Lots of fun :)

super 6 f150! $20 with bad battery and charger. seems complete. haven't tested motors or gearboxes but they sound good. might be a keeper for my youngest (ghost image at right, never stops moving) as it's a little small for my 5 year old. anybody ever flip a super6 with a 12 volt battery?

i popped my flipping cherry tonight. sold the corvette and the hummer. i delivered both to different people, it was only about a 20 mile round trip for both and it was great to see the kids faces when i took them out. my daughter was excited to show both kids how to drive and shift. by my math i made out very well even including gas and we all had a great time. i wish i had been doing this all along.

Super shock. good condition except maybe the drive wheels (not really sure what they are supposed to look like). no battery or charger. paid $20. this is their craiglist pic, it was raining when i got back.

edit: everything including the sound box works. drive wheels are a little bald, but they are fairly cheap.

not really a score but i thought i would post where the bigfoot tires ended up. it has a lot more traction but rides a little rougher. im considering throwing the gearboxes up front for 4 wheel drive because ive read some posts that say the 3a's are close to the same ratio as the jeeps #7s.

I have one of those yellow polaris 700's, really nice and big. Im working it up to be Moms chase vehicle, until I find an iMod anyway.

Heads up, the Polaris 800/850 wheels bolt right up, same cross shape drive. They are very slightly taller, a bit wider, and have the rubber center strip. They make the 700 look a LOT better IMO, i felt the 700 wheels were just too dinky. I got mine new for about $70, pretty much same price as the smaller 700 whels when new, and I feel it was worth it.

thanks for the heads up.i actually just got some cheap 700 wheels from sea stork, but this is definitely a keeper so if my kids manage to destroy these wheels ill get the better ones.

twin escalades. sun faded but in very good condition otherwise. i think these might be my first paint project. im thinking one UNC carolina blue and white, and one carolina panthers black and blue. the wheels seriously look brand new so i dont think they were driven much, just left in the sun for5 years. $20 for the pair but no batteries or chargers. this is the pic they sent me because it was dark when i got back:

mega haul! 8 at once. paid $120. most will be parts except the driveway racer and the safety first chopper. got a lot of chargers and batteries that he claimed were good. i wanted to pay a lot less but i think i can get my money out of it even at $120. Ive already started painting the chopper for a flip.

yeah i cant wait to see it done. i did taz's lift found here: viewtopic.php?f=60&t=8219
lift and flat black underneath are done painted the hubcaps and small pieces satin rustoleum 2x "oregano" (like olive drab) just need to paint the top of the body and finish up a few things. im thinking a white vinyl star on the hood and maybe some numbers once the paint cures.

heres an mx350 i picked up last minute for my daughter and painted pink. changed the 5 on the number plate to a 6 for her 6th birthday. it was pretty rough when i got it and didnt work. i threw some new batteries in it and still nothing. turned out the on/off switch was dirty. it was pretty much the same as a power wheel switch plus one wire for the illumination.

Mega score! i was looking for some good clean jeep bodies to build my lifted jeeps. this guy had a "barbie jeep" listed in a multiple toy ad and had no pic. i emailed and he said it was always garaged and hardly ridden at all but now didnt work. i talked him down from $75 to $40 sight unseen just thinking it was a take along tunes or something. i got there and it was this minty beach ranger. lock out screw still in place, complete minus a key, including the jerry can! the tires look brand new. i got the pa to work and button #1 makes engine sounds but 2 and 3 do nothing. are the lights supposed to work? i put new batteries in it. this is the best pic i could get with my phone in the dark
