We should be having our first vintage slot car get-together Tuesday, 4/26/16, at Slots-A-Lot Raceway, Franklin Square, NY, on Long Island at 7 PM.

Tell your friends that are into the old slot cars of the '60s and '70s and come do some laps with them. $15 for the night with a dedicated track for vintage cars only.

I'll be there, Mig. Maybe we can work out details for future meetings then.

 

I think I may have one or two vintage things laying around here I can bring.  :)

Joe,

If you want to bring your whole car collection to Slots-A-Lot, you can borrow my van. I also have a 12' enclosed trailer if you want to bring all the parts and model kits too.

Wish we had something like that within 200 miles. What kind of controllers do you use? Just vintage or modern?
