One Mean Moonbuggy!
I've always enjoyed James Bond movies. The classic adventures in particular. There were always exciting gadgets and vehicles on display. Diamonds are Forever has one of the coolest vehicles Bond has ever driven; the Techtronics Moonbuggy. Bond uses it to escape from the Techtronics Space Lab with the result being a fabulous chase in the Nevada desert. It was built for the film by legendary custom vehicle expert Dean Jeffries who, sadly, passed away last May. I recently purchased this great Corgi Moonbuggy. It's a reproduction of the moonbuggy that Corgi released in the 70s. Unlike the original, the reproduction's coloration matches the film version. The detailing is amazing. Enjoy!
