Fellas,

 

 The C.A.R.S. Vintage Slot Car Club faithful met once again this past Thursday Dec. 4th 2014 at THE RACE PLACE.  We came together to celebrate the 50 ANNIVERSARY of 1964 !

 We brought along some old model/slot car magazines from 1964 to reminisce, and to introduce to the younger guys at the track to some of the relics that were the "hot setup" in the day. Along these lines I've noticed that I've forgotten a good portion of the content of these issues, even though they belong to me...as such it was almost as though I were looking at NEW MAGAZINES.  There does seem to be some advantage to growing older !

 

 We also took this time to unleash our GP cars on the RACE PLACE's new B-I-G T-R-A-C-K.  The cars did indeed perform respectably, particularly a certain "outlaw style" build of Rodney's.  A real survivor, as are a good number of his cars, the # 14 Ferrari took to the track and ran great !  In the second photo, Rodney's Ferrari driver looks proudly into the camera !

Fellas,

 

 We see Pete's Ferrari (pink crown gear be dammed) posing on the pile of old mags looking for the source or "home-a-da-aroma" that is associated with these fine vintage publications...while Pete's sports cars await their turn to get on track.

Mikey,

 

 Thanks for the kind words. The cars ran pretty well on the new track, we'll be utilizing the B-I-G track more often in 2015 !
