I had forgotten I got a Norvel 049 with throttle in a box somewhere from years ago. I got it for a Guillows P-40 that I never finished.

I miss the cars a lot. But every time I see one on eBay they go for $200...

Well, it does seem to be sealed in it's original package.

$95 may not be that far out of line...maybe.

I had one of these as a kid. I even remember the blister pack.

I preferred Wen Mac planes myself. I know others have voiced their disdain for them.

I was the kid that ended up with everyones old engines after they crashed their planes so I had a good collection of motors.

The Wen Mac engine wasn't bad and they started fairly easily but the propellers that came on the RTF planes were terrible. I usually replaced them with a Cox prop right away.

The Testors engines ran pretty good also but didn't have the power of a Cox engine. If I recall correctly, the bore was smaller and they had a longer stroke.
