1980s Lego Technic 8860 Car - Resurrected and Brought to Life!

Hi
I owned a Lego Technic 8860 car back in the 1980s. My parents were clearing out their loft,found it and passed it on to me. I built it with my kids (much fun) and then brought it to life with some Power Functions motors and a Raspberry Pi. Check out my blog for how I did it!
