  1. I have a sign on the lid of my Slot car box that says, “ Every one is born right handed, only the gifted overcome it.” It’s right next to the one that says “ I won’t say you are stupid but I do think you have bad luck when it comes to thinking.”
  2. After I heard the first f-bomb I turned it off and never went back, don’t need that!
  3. Ahh the Wren B model, mines 55 years old now. Haven’t used it much lately because it slipped out of the hanger and hit the floor a few years ago damaging the tip. Anybody know of a place to get replacements and if so what number? Thanks
  4. But the right hand drive indicates that it is an export, so shouldn’t it be a Crosmobile?
  5. I wanted something with vertical/straight sides. Found this Ozark Trail but there are other brands. Fed-ex delivered it Saturday, I haven’t had a chance to set it up yet.

    Wanted Lola GT 1/24

    I’m not sure if anyone ever made one or not. Jay Leno did a piece a while back about a guy who had a silver one. Nice looking simple car.
  8. The early ones like this one had a Renault 1470cc engine. Always wanted one, wish I could come get it.
  9. Marty I understand your passion, the sad fact is that there just aren’t many of us around. I wanted to reply, but I’m out here in flyover country, 1500 miles away. I race with a regular group of about 8 guys. We have 7 tracks at four different houses. Three road courses and an oval in Omaha, a tri-oval and drag strip in Gretna, NE, and an oval in Wilbur, NE. We have learned to adapt, example, I’m not a big fan of drag or oval, but I have 10 drag cars and 10 oval cars. We do this for the sake of the club getting together and racing. Having said that we probably wouldn’t be able to get SoDak1 (who posted he last Friday) to come and race with us because he might only like Carrera cars and plastic tracks. If you haven’t yet found other forums look around, Slotblog is where I spend a lot of time and right now there are a couple of threads on growing our sport that you might be interested in, as well as tracks and groups in SC. Good luck and keep it going. Thom
  10. Obviously, you’ve mistaken me for someone who cares.
  11. Recently this track held it’s 4th Larry Shinoda( Detroit designer) Reunion Race with a large international turnout. Also interesting, they are soon beginning a new scholarship series designed to get elementary age kiddos into slot cat racing. Free car and controller if they attend with a parent and write a nice essay. Checkout Casey Putsch, Genius Garage, on YouTube.
  12. afx nailed it! Now if they only made it in plastic.
  13. I went to a plastic surgery group last night. It was nice to see so many new faces.
  14. Can you be more specific, what kinds of frames? Plastic or metal?
  15. A proper traveling garage, with rollup garage door.
  16. Bill, when you made your mold, what did you use for a release agent? thanks Thom
  17. Rod & Custom did it in 1/24-25 scale in '65. I will look it up when I get home, maybe even post a pic of what's left of mine from back then. If someone did it in Model Car Science I would like to know what issues also.
  18. Deja vu all over again. Auto ID #5 June 14, 2010
  19. Steve, What is the build plate that chassis is sitting on? thom
