After some delay we finally got underway with the "Thingie" build. My first decision had to do with a choice as to which chassis would be used for the car. While I do have a near mint BZ rebop chassis I decided to go with the old one that I had laying around for several decades.
The chassis that will be used saw many "hot laps" at the old RACE PLACE at the Collingwood Auction. I recall buying the chassis brand new "back in the day" for about $3.00 and change. This was in about 1975 when I first got into slot cars...anyway here's the chassis.
While it certainly does show considerable seasoning, it is sound and sturdy and more than up to the task of once again hitting the track.
The motor shown suffers from "end bell fatigue" and will be replaced by a similar motor that is in much better condition. While it also has seen some action, it will be fine !
