So I had to buils a classic. At last a modern interpretation, chassis (I'll post later by Richard Mack).
 
OK finally finished, a nasty little beast, I never knew they were so small. Here it is, Ralph Salyer's, Salyer Plumbing Special, Cro-Sal Cheetah coupe! Body via George, details by me, (because George is skimping on the details now-a-days) Decals by (Tom) "isthatlegal" on EBAY....Oh and chassis by the master Mr Richard Mack! Wheels ...I have no idea, picked them up off of EBAY years ago, perfect for the car and fit with set screws on a 3/16 axle.
 
Maybe I'll get more responses this time (IT'S AN AMERICAN CAR WITH A CHEVY)

I forgot the chassis care of Mr Richard Mack, and you know who's gears those are.

I think the only fair way to judge a slot car is to go down the list:

1) It's a Cheetah

........

 

........

er, well, that's really all that matters!  Nice car!

Didn't know if those gears still existed? It's a shame that they are no longer being manufactured. IMO.
