I was trying to learn more about:

 

Where did Larry Shinoda race his Thingies?

 

How was the Thingies racing scene in Detroit between 1965 and 1968?

Hi Carlo, 

 

First, have you tried a search on SlotBlog? 

 

Lot's of stuff already published on here, including the couple period articles in slot magazines about.... The Groove!

I think we all would and have continuously reached out for knowledge.

The best source that we have is Gene Adams, known also as ZR1 and Gene's World.
He is featured in one of those old Slot Car Magazine articles about Detroit, the Groove Raceway and Larry Shinoda.

There is a lot here Carlo, just look through the topics here in Thingies, you will find them no doubt!
