Fellas,

 

 A few new vintage slot car enthusiasts came to last night's meet. "Pennsylvania Glenn" stopped by and brought along some really interesting scratch builder style parts, many of them still in their original packages. Maybe we'll try a build along thread here again ?

 

 New attendees were Gary and Gale, husband and wife from central Jersey. Gary brought along two "survivors" from his early days of slot car racing, what I believe is an INTERNATIONAL FORD GT and an orange MPC Mako Shark. Both cars had seen better days as far the bodies (Butyrate) were concerned but mechanically they were sound. We'll try to get these cars back in action soon.

 

 Also in Gary's stable was a PARMA Flex 1 with a GT body which he was wringing out on the upstairs track.

 

  Some may recall that we were considering a Flexi 1 based program considering that they are almost a thirty year old design. Gary's hot lap session convinced me that we'll now give the "vintage slot car" blessing to the PARMA favorite !!!

Many older bodies are out there, some quite unique I might add.  For now I'll suggest PARMA bodies on Flexi 1's if possible...

 

 As mentioned above The RACE PLACE will be closed June 6-10 and will reopen on June 12. Maybe we'll have a mid month get together and bring along the FLEXI 1 car cars ?
