... and came home with this.

 

1 each - #1603M Motor Mount   $2.00

4 each - #1691 Tube 1/8' x 5"     $ .10

1 each - #1692 Tube 5/32" x 2"   $ .10

2 each - #1604E Frame Section  $ .50

1 each - #1604F Guide Plate       $ .35

 

That's $3.85, came home with $ 0.15 change.

Have to save up and go back for a motor because I'm going to build me a dragster someday. :D

Red,

The old man still has the original price sheet, he said "I'll hold the line on those. They haven't been selling well". ^_^

 

Bill,

No website but these parts were stored in the cloud.

 

Dust that was.... :heat:

How old is that photo?
Who's the 2 dudes on the far left? Must be investigating the fire from the night before, since the fire hoses are still hooked up. Maybe there just pumping out the basement.
I like the the awnings and the spirit water in the window.
Nice photo,

Now where did the parts come from?, I have Kemtrom motors.

I'm thinking they are pumping concrete down in the subway.

 

I don't know where that store is but the parts were here in a Plano box. Bought a bunch of kits off ebay 15 or so years ago and opened evey bag and put the loose kit parts in the divided box. Used a bunch of it over the years.

 

When I found the picture I took a 'trip' into that hobby store and it was great. I go back in every time I see it.

Reminds me of some hobby store in Brooklyn that my uncle took me to and left with a big honkin' Monogram Ford kit. I tried to build it as fast as 7 year old could, not the patient way.

 

===========

 

This car will get a NOS 4 volt Kemtron-KTM.

Was thinking straight up rail job but might have found the right body for it.... stay tuned.

Let me look around the shop and see what I have in the Kemtron selection.
An old ancient creaky wood floor musty hobby shop with a Jiffy Pop hanging on the wall for a fire alarm had the best selection.
Ah! The good old days.

Mom said "be home before dark" and the old man was having a hard time finding that motor bracket.

 

I said "maybe because it's a Lost-wax casting"

 

He sternly looked over those funny flat top glasses and said "don't be a wiseass kid, I'll find it"

 

Going back soon to get that motor.

Hi Bob,

 

I thought Slotblogger's might like to see a Kemtron motor parts pack along with your stash of treasures:
