1/24 Carrera cars though not really good slot cars are beautiful accurate models. So I use Carrera bodies mounted on custom built brass chassis powered by Pro Slot or Parma motors running on Pro-Track rims/tires to make nice looking drivable cars.

 

Carrera's latest product is the 2016-17 Ford GT which in both 1:1 and 1/24 is stunning.

Getting older I'm finding new chassis construction's more of a chore so I modified an older tapered  chassis I build some years ago for a Carrera 1/24 Viper by extending the wheelbase. Voila! A nice fit.

Remember folks, traffic lights timed for 35 MPH, are also timed for 70!
