The Ford Bronco in this video is a remote control, 1/9th-scale model. It was hand built, out of wood, by Headquake RC Creations, which seems to be a guy working happily in his workshop in rural Ontario, Canada.

The level of detail is amazing—the miniature driver has foam arms and looks like he’s steering—and it’s fun to watch them roam their magically out-of-scale worlds. There are more videos after the jump.

Bring a Trailer writes that a 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280S rally car is on offer in the Bay Area. I’ve always liked the look of vintage, factory rally cars, with their stacks of big chrome driving lights. How would fun would it be to blast across the desert in this?

The seller says in his Craigslist ad that it will need a roll cage, fuel cell, and fire suppression system, if you decide to take it on a sanctioned rally. It’s listed for $10,000 in Carmel, CA.
