Same weekend as the Toledo Toy Show, but that is now Friday set-up and Saturday show.

Saturday afternoon/evening at Professor Motor/Lightning Speedway in Saline, MI, who will host a vintage slot car night to run cars and buy/sell/trade. Theme for racing this time American muscle cars. Tech specs on the Lightning Speedway website under racing schedules:  http://www.lightningspeedway.com

Hey Nelson,

 

Yes, Carlton Hobbies has a four-lane Carrera set-up in shop.

 

I keep forgetting about Slot Car Crossing in Ortonville as I just don't get that far north much, but they should be mentioned as well. Will make sure they get listed in any show postings going forward.

Hey Bob,

 

A few of the guys who come to race have some vintage things for sale, but it's nothing like what is at the swap meet at Club Canton. Those of us who do bring things to sell try to respect that Professor Motor is an active shop, so keep it vintage. 

 

The Professor will also have some tubs of vintage stuff to rummage through, and no, I haven't taken all the good stuff! Still lots of useful things available!
