As time permits, I will be posting photos of cars that Eddie Cordle was kind enough to take the time to show me during a recent visit to Cordle Model Speedway located in Marietta, GA.

 

These cars may not be to everyone's taste- but I thought that they were unique enough to share with all of you.

 

I am sorry, I don't know details about them or how they were built so I can't answer questions that you may have.

Nice, but not the first person I knew that raced semis on a slot track.

 

'92 Nats.

I would like to see more pictures... thanks for sharing the ones you did.

 

I like to read about guys who aren't afraid to do things differently.

Jeff M-

 

That's Doug Bauer of Port Jeff Raceway, but that doesn't look like Zeppelin Hobbies in NJ where the 92 Nats were held.

Eddie does have some interesting cars. I am just thankful that he loves the hobby enough to keep us a place to race and play in the Atlanta area.

 

Thank you, Eddie C.

Amen to that Eddie. Are we going to see you on the 30th? Eddie and some others said they are coming.

Red,

 

I think you will have a few from Atlanta. Me, too.

This is a Russian truck on Kuopio King track during European Championships 1992. The car was vastly too high to fit under the bridge so it was lifted over by hand. The pic is quite bad, the  truck was quite nice scratchbuilt.
