Hello my name is Barney and I was... I am addicted to glue, magnets, and wings... I have been clean and sober years now... NOW I'm hooked on 1/32 club track racing! Dang!
"Even if you're on the Right Track, you'll get run over if you just sit there!"
If you remember screw-on braid, motors that look like padlocks, that dang fuse wire in Cox controllers, "hand" painted bodies, the very first can motors from Mabuchi, and the smell of wintergreen then you are OLD!... like me!
Enjoy life! Race Slot Cars and read SlotBlog!

I had the pleasure and privilege of visiting Greg in 2003 and 2004, after my weekends at The Monterey Historic Races at Laguna Seca Raceway. Never have I met a person more dedicated and passionate about his hobby, yet humble and so proud to share it with others. I was able to run some of my oldest Aurora Thunderjet and A/FX race cars during my visits, using a couple of my favorite vintage Russkit controllers as well. Two scale miles is a lot of track to learn in a couple of hours, I was more in pleasure cruise mode, watching all that magnificent scratchbuilt scenery go by!
My thanks go out to all those whose efforts have preserved Greg's vision not just for themselves, but for the entire slot car racing community to share, as I'm sure he wished for us all.
It's sad that Greg is no longer here, but what a legacy he has left for us to enjoy and remember him by.
Rest in Peace, Greg, and Thank You. - Ernie

I do hope you guys can restore and preserve it as it deserves, because it is one of the great slot car tracks in the world.
