Fellas,

 

 Nice turnout for a cold night with snow in the forecast, sadly the camera was not in attendance. We had several GP cars out there cutting some fast laps, all of which belonged to Rodney. No matter what I tried I couldn't keep up with any of his stable of cars !  Looks like I have some work to do to get back in the "groove" !

Steve "CANYON" was also on hand with his every growing collection of Monogram "oldies" that never cease to amaze...his "newest" acquisition, sported a set of resurrected foam rears that had the distinct aroma of wintergreen.

 

  On another note,I spent a good deal of the last three days helping set up the GARDEN STATE VINTAGE STOCK CAR CLUB display at the Vintage Auto Museum of New Jersey. The official opening will be January 11th, 2017 but most of the cars are already in place.  I'm in the burgundy hoodie trying to look busy...All photos by Ray Shea

Happy New Year Guys!

 

I have been cutting new foam tires for some Pactra cars I got in a collection just before Christmas. I have a pretty good selection of color foam and experimenting with a narrower format on these low power (FT-16) motor cars. Yeah, my goop has wintergreen in it. I put it in there myself (fun finding that these days)! 

 

They run nicely on the big track although... well.. no drop arm if you know what I mean. A fun vintage experience! (As long as I keep out to the way of the retro racers out there trying to practice!)  The black car is a Dynamic chassis machine I put a Parma 16D in so it is hysterically overpowered! Again, a fun vintage driving experience on a big track!  

 

Take care,

Greetings!

I dug out a few cars from hiding, working on trying to restore a Monogram 1/32 Ferrari 158 GP with all the chrome parts it is missing.  Tough to find though!

 

Hope to make it for February.
