Anyone still around from Minature Grand Prix... or who knew Jack Elam, Jack Wicks, etc. '66 SoCal model car racing championships, Revell slot racing team. Many memories.

Aw, crud. I'm an old-timer, but nobody knew or knows me. I thought this was just going to be a thread about geezers.  :D

I see you list yourself as being in Orange County. Why don't you stop by Buena Park Raceway on a Thursday evening and have a look at the race program.

I knew Jack Elam when he raced at Tiny's in Anaheim, RE Owens in Orange, and several other raceways in Orange Co, CA, in the mid '60s.

Old-timers? Come to the Western Summer Classic at BPR the fourth weekend of July (three-day event, Fri, Sat, and Sun). You'll see old-timers galore. Come on out.
