I’m gutted by the news that my friend Daniel Rowlands has passed away. Dan was a straight up nice guy, and an inspiration for everyone in the vintage RC community.

I never got to meet you in person, but I cherished our lengthy conversations about everything vintage RC. You will be sadly missed, and I’m proud to have been your friend.

You can read his memoirs from restoring Joel Johnsons WC’87 Ultima here.

My thoughts go to his wife, kids and parents in this difficult time.

Rest in Peace, my friend.

I have been into RC cars since the beginning of the 80's, but have really never been much of a racer. I competed in some local races and some "Tamiya Cups", and actually came 6th in the Tamiya Cup Norwegian Nationals in 1987. My main interest has always been building and modifying, and that's where I still am today. Through the years I have been able to build a solid network of contacts around the world, consisting of both former and current members of the industry, as well as quite a few of the former top drivers. I have a genuine interest for the history of the 1/10 scale off-road buggies from the 80's.
