Well being born in 1990, I missed out on the "real" retro racing, as in before it was actually retro! lol Well I'm really into learning more of this great hobby, and I read about Team Nutley alot, and I'm interested to know what was Team Nutley, and what it was all about. If there are any other sites where I could learn more please post a link. Thxs. :)

I am old enough but was never exposed to slots in the 60's. The one really nice thing, right now, is that we don't have to read it in a book, they actual players from Team Nutley are here with us. TonyP, Emmot, Noose, Gorski etc. I really like reading them post about the old days. There should probably be a place just for that kind of posting................

You can check out the thread "New Jersey slot car Raceways" in the slot car history forum. Should be some discussion about Team Nutley there. I was lucky enough to have raced there as a "geek" in the 68-71 timre frame, and am now racing with some of those guys now. Very cool.

The Nutley person obviously missing is Mike Tango. Last I heard, he was flying RC planes in the midwest. It may have been in the St. Louis area. Steve Okeefe used to frequent Nutley as a kid. Over at scratchbuilt.com he posted a story of when his Emott chassis got walled there & he had to take it home in a paper bag. :)

I talked to Mike Tango almost 3 years ago. He happened to stop in at Zepplins right after they moved from Riverside to Wayne, NJ. He knew Lou Balini from years ago and Lou told him me, Gorski and Tony P were racing again. He left his card and I called him. He now lives in South Jersey and is still into flying RC planes. I tried to get him to stp into one of the retro races but he hasn't. He had a website up for awhile with pics of his planes.

Those were great days taking the 13 Broad bus with Tony P until I got my license to drive us there. Bob Tidaback did come to Zeps for one of our races and had his 2 sons with him, one of which races midgets, sprints, etc. against Liquid Lou! Wayne Williams is in Colorado. Barry DeShong came to Zeps and we posted a pic here awhile ago. Mike Marra was a firefighter I think (Tony will confirm) and I haven't see him in around 15 years.

I raced at Checkered Flag Raceways in Clementon. The owner was Jack Colcough. The USRA here in the East ran there. I have pix somewhere. It was down near Chews Landing off the Black Horse Turnpike.
I raced with a few fellas who talked about Nutley a lot. Never raced there but wish I had.

At the time, Nutley was the mecca of pro racing on the east coast. Mike Tango did a great job of promoting and getting the pro drivers to make his track their home track. It was the kind of place where everyone would hang out after a race. Some of the racers that would show up for a weekly wed nite race included legends, John Gorski, Ed Hochdorf, Bob Emott, PVA, Howie, Wayne Williams, Jerry Brady, Sandy Gross, Chris Vitucci, Big Jim Greenaway, , Phil Rubin, Ed Sohl, etc.

We had the first epoxied blue king track set up by Bob Emott which was the fastest real american king track. The turns were all cranked, the straight was flattened out to eliminate the dip coming on to the lead on. We also had the first lap counter where you could follow the drivers for 8 heats and ran 8 heat mains when most other places were running 4 heat mains on every other lane.

Nutley also became a manufacturer with chassis parts, gears, tires, and later on rebadged mura motors.

It was a fun time....

John, Were you racing when the shop was on Franklin Ave in Nutley. That was a really much nicer building.

LOL yup. I really didn't know you guys well back then. I just drove stupid stuff. I bought my slot box there it was orange stained. I remember.Tango had a Unimat I used to watch him cut coms. The HO track was by the front window. Yes it was a nice building. I use to buy my Tiparillos next store. I was basically a groupie at that point. I used to take the 82 Wattsessing to Jerolemon and then walked from there to the track when the 15 Nutley Center wasn't running.
great Times Yoda.

When at Nutley, I learned it was best to wear "shin guards" when Mitch Keil (Team Camen) was anywhere near. Made great friends there, Very stiff competition and a very fast track. Loved it.

It was the ultimate time my Dad & I read about Nutley and saw all
the top racers were going there and that Mike Tango had a Super Track & Shop ...it was.
I finally could race with the best. Tony & I spent many hours in his chassis building
room bench racing about what the next hot chassis would be.
Weds night races were awesome. People ask me why i run a clear body on my practice cars
well that started with the rule on Weds night races you could run a clear body.
The 1st race I came to they still had the Engleman track pre King track days.
The 1968 Car Model Race 101 entries. Believe it or not Young Joey Noose won the Weds Night warm up race.
The Sat Main Event was won by Jerry Brady, Howie Ursaner 2nd, Sandy Gross 3rd, John Cukras 4th.
It was the 1st big race with the new sidewinder craze that the West Coast had started. I had an inline didn't
build a sidewinder yet so I tried to win concours just had fun watching these guys that day.
for more info on this race dig up a Vol. 1 no.13 June 6, 1968 Model Car Journel...35 cents...

Mill, that's Big Jim Greenaway a great motor builder and the man that gave me the name of Noose. He is also the one who came up with "Somebody's Got To Eat It".

I wish I still had some of those Italian knit shirts from back then like the one I am wearing in the picture!

When Lee Gilbert and I arrived to Nutley Raceway in February 1971 for the Nutley Nats, we got pulled over by a cop in a blue NJ police car, because my tiny, 2-cylinder Honda N600 minicar did not have license plates, it had the usual temporary California paperwork on its winshield. We had to talk the cop into letting us go as he did not know that these were legal, and eventually he asked us, "what kind of car it this, did you make it yourselves?" :laugh2:

Molnar you got your Legends and I got the pleasure to hang out with the guys here and I know they are all great guys, have to say I love those old photographs. ;)
John G. dark hair? :shok: Noose don't worry if you want one sweeter like that my mom can make you one she is 78 years old and she would love to knit one
for you. :laugh2:
Thanks for sharing that, great story and pics. ;)
And a Happy New Year to all of you guys on the East side.

United we stand and divided we fall, the Legends are complete.
I'm racing the best here at BP but Father time is much better then all of us united.
Not a snob in this hobby, after all it will be gone, if we keep on going like we do, and I have nothing to prove so I keep on posting because I have nothing to gain.
It's our duty to remember the past so we can have a future.

Pistol Pete you will always be in my memory.
