Since I didn't find a specific place for a new member to say hello, I figured I would just put it here since vintage production 1/24 cars is really the only thing that interests me. Thought I would just use my old eBay name as some of you may remember me being pretty active buying and selling 10-18 years ago.
I was your typical track rat in the '60s and basically lived at the local track till it closed sometime in '67-68. I've been collecting vintage Cox cars since the early '90s when I bought a MIB Cox Cheetah RTR from Philippe. Want to say hello to Philippe who is probably reading this saying, "Oh no, not that guy that used to drive me nuts with all faxed in orders and questions."
Anyway, I got out of slot cars and back into the 1:1 scale cars about 10 years ago when I bought another Boss 302 Mustang like I had 45 years ago. Still have the Boss and a couple other Mustangs but interest in slots has come back and bought my first car in over 10 years recently, a very nice Cox 2D off eBay. I was never really into the kits and prefered the ones that someone did a nice job of building then sat them on a shelf never to be used again and my new 2D fits that description. Took me over two years to finally win an auction but very happy with the car.
Knowing there are a lot of 2D fans out there I thought I would post the following pic for your viewing pleasure. Being a Ford guy the GT40 will always be my favorite race car but the 2D is a close second.
