Paris Dakar Collection 1979 - 2009

Post by reeft1 » Sat Aug 16, 2014 5:38 pm

I recently sold these off as I had to rationalise my collection, but these cars represent all the varieties of winning cars from the Paris Dakar from its inception until the mid naughties.

Great collection! All I have is the P-D VW Iltis, would at least like to own the 959 someday...

The first 2 Starter models look very nice. A shame you sold them off.

That's a great collection and its a pity you had to sell it off. I'm guessing there aren't too many Dakar collections like that around and judging by the number off different manuacturers, you would have had to hunt far and wide to accumulate them.

Did you sell them individually or as a set ?

Sold them all individually in the end but you are correct that it took a while and a variety of sources to build the collection in the first place.
