Scalextric comes home after a 35 year break

Recommended Posts

Now that the kids are a bit bigger we thought it was time to indulge in a proper christmas present like I remember, so I got on the ‘bay and picked up a lightly-used Scalextric set- Continental Sports Cars.

For a 25€ winning bid I am very pleased- the mediocre cars work, the track is excellent, and I have already purchased a few extra sections, plus this, by Scaleauto:D3E845FA-738E-4D4F-B949-9F4AB863FA4C.png.0797a9e2ecbf57ab901b4461381bd407.png

Now to build a new garage...

I have a Scalextric set I bought about 10 years ago when a hobby shop closed. I then added track and cars. The 1/32 cars are really nice. I PLAN on making a permanent set up in my hobby garage that folds out from the wall.

Funny, I’m thinking about the same setup, space will be at a premium and I’m certainly not planning to pack it away each time. 

I remember twisting and wrenching the track apart way too often (usually due to someone ordering  us to tidy up our room...) soon enough it stopped going back together easily, and the metal tabs on the rails would snap off.

‘Twas a Scalextric 500...
