My all time favorite magazine cover.   I have had the complete run of all 4 major US slot magazines from the 60's.   The Monogram picture is my all time favorite.   How could anybody not want that layout at home!!!

Fellas,

 

 Some pics from the April meeting with "A" being the theme of the month. I'll start with some familiar 1/24 scale stuff from my own collection.

The theme should be fairly evident with the display. The AVENGER, an AAR Eagle and the ASP.  A belly pic of the same group. Finally some clear bodies that I brought along to the event.

Some more photos from the April meeting with Mike's collection featured. The COBRA GT being a descendent of Shelby's AC Cobra roadster undoubtedly qualifies it for the monthly theme, this one in 1/32 scale. 

 

  Speaking of 1/32 scale, Mike's Lola GT landed in this position while he was hot lapping the Red Lightening track. Another view shows the belly of this beast...

This group of photos presents a first for the C.A.R.S. Vintage club, for years I've been promising that the club would take a look at HO cars. Mike decided to take the lead and his efforts were acknowledged with much interest from the group.

 

With AURORA being a major player in the HO wars, Mike's cars meet April's "A" theme. Hot Rods and a pair of Cheetahs both T-Jets, followed by a pair of sports cars. A Mercedes and a Jaguar XK 120. The last two are some real oldies being AURORA Vibrators cars.

 

Expect some more HO stuff to make appearances in the future here on the C.A.R.S. page !
