Fellas,

 

 Went to a car show today out in Pennsy and decided to stop by a couple of slot car tracks while in the area. TRAINS & LANES was on the way so we stopped to check them out.

 

 Several racers (4) were there testing their Retro Can-Am bodied Flexi cars. I got a rundown of the rules and they seem to be right up my alley.  I'll try to get some of them written down and run them past Jerry to see if we can't get a similar class off the ground here. Maybe we'll be able to get up there sometime and run with them and invite them down to the TRP ?

 

If you've never been to T&L your in for a treat, 3 tracks two of which are really long and FAST, as well as really cool looking oval. They are without a doubt the biggest hobby shop I've ever seen and I've been customer of theirs for over 25 yrs ! For one thing, paint, paint, paint. If you can't find what you're looking for there, it doesn't exist, period !

 

 We also made the trip to the Quakertown Farmer's Market and dropped by to the Slot car track know as RACEPLACE to see what was new, they never disappoint. Being in the heart of oval track territory they offer a large selection of oval track type "stuff" especially slot car bodies.  The mini King track had all 8 lanes rented and running and the HO track had some racers testing their cars.

 

 What I found at the track was totally unexpected and a complete surprise. Vintage bodies by Caveman Bodeeze, while I'm familiar with the brand, the selection of items was amazing ...a Classic ASP for one, a CHEETAH and an AVENGER , all clear with window masks !  I've yet to open the packages but they all seem to be dead on compared to the originals ! looks as though they're available painted as well !
