The first sight on my find a car chassis 8860

Last months I was cruising barns for Lego Technic gems. Sometimes I am lucky most of the times I run into tear jerking situations where owners or former owners just left their sets victim to the destruction of time. Even ones who try to fix up their sets with new parts completely out of chronological sense. Like this 8860 famous car chassis I ran into lately. This one is for its time a great set and full of functions and high level of play-ability and can really be used as a chassis to build all kind of bodies on. I even saw once a guy who build a Porsche body on top of it. The one  found was in a really sad state. There was one thing I could go along with and that was the fact that the grey front box was enriched with a lid. Because this set doesn't have any room or place for bagage storage. You could store some belongings behind the chairs but that will get them dirty during your ride.

Browsing through the rich history of Lego Technic sets I discovered that there are a lot of small sets. Scanning all these 'small' technic sets I decided that I would consider sets with 100 or less parts as small.

Reading our Dutch equivalent of Cosmopolitan..., hmm should I mention this at all in this article intro? Anyway reading the Linda. of November 2015 I ran into a picture of Mastermind game. This is a game from the 70-ties, which immediately spawned memories of my youth spending time at my grand parents. My grandpa was a mathematician in both profession and hobby. So he teached us all kind of fun number-games or logic-games. One of them was Master Mind.

Since a few weeks I am busy collecting photo material for Technic Set history. This is a very interesting action. going through the history of Lego Technic. I do have already this idea for a longer time to collect all technic Lego sets and put them in a picture collection. Currently I finished the 70-ties and 80-ties.

With this collection/way of representation you should be able to filter on type of set like farm, car or race or filter by year. Currently you can do that via menu 'Pages' and select either 'Technic Sets' or 'Set Time Line'. I only concentrate on sets or idea books so no educational sets or replacement part sets.
