With the gift from a kind gentleman, I am able to complete the last of my Gar-Vic RTR's, the OCELOT!

 

 

I have added a different wheel set since I did not have any more original ones, but I think these wheels are perfect!

IMG_20180426_212048.jpg   I decided to finish this one before going on to another project.  Another Classic Ind. production that required very little to get it running again.

As seen elsewhere, I have a new addition to the RTR family!

 

Twin Testor MARAUDERS..Both beautiful slot cars that I could not own back in Junior High.

 

Thanks to:

 

Jarius for the wonderful paint work.

 

Victor Ferguson for the beautiful Clear Bodies so that I could complete this important project.

 

Maximo for cleaning, restoration and parts acquisition.

 

Behold!!

  Definitely two nice looking rides.  Does Victor produce any other bods, and how can I get in touch with him?

Collective wishful thinking might work? He is a SB member or you could try this contact  http://www.truescale...s.com/index.htm

  Thanks, I didn't put the two together.  Victor/Truescale, yes that's gonna involve plenty of wishful thinking!

For the first time ever, I add a Monogram Thingie to my collection!

 

My childhood friend Bobby Johnson has all three Monogram thingies, but I never did.

 

From the strange World of blood suckers comes... the VAMPIRE!

I have always loved the Thomas CHEETAH!

 

Chevrolet's answer to the Shelby Cobra's on the racing circuits of America long ago...

Built by Bill Thomas, yet another famous collaborator of Chevrolet's secret racing efforts.

 

I always believed that the Classic Manta Ray was their fantasy answer to the Cheetah rather than an interpretation of the same name Showcar.

 

Therefore.... here is my answer to Classic's Manta Ray....my RTR Cheetah Ray ! 

 

A Dynamic chassis Sidewinder 16D using those wonderful Testor DURO Wheels and GENEX tires as well.

 

Slot Car Wizard Jarius Watson brought this project to life after much agony with a much aging vintage curling body!

 

Thank you Mr. J,

 

Also thank you to Matt Bishop for motor/chassis parts and Pablo for a much needed front wheel!

Another RTR to me is the Lancer Hornet!

 

This body was pulled and sold by REH from Lancer molds. I have had it for years.

 

Dynamic chassis 36D Sidewinder sporting Mila Miglia wheels.

 

Paint by Jairus.

I like the way you formed your body mounts to match the body side angle.

I came across another project that has gone unfinished for quite awhile now and decided it was time to get-er-done. So with a couple extra Garvic chassis laying around and 2 bods from Gene/ZR1 I was able to add 2 more to my collection:attachment=170927:IMG_20190305_211008.jpg]
