 As Steve states, spur of the moment gathering last weekend at The RACE PLACE in Farmingdale NJ. I  bought along some of my old flexi racers to see if I could get them up to speed once again for old time's sake. A pair of 4 1/2" Flexis and a 4" Flexi 1 complete with Ultimate Indy body.

 

 Often occasions  such as this require the procurement of a least one set of new tires, often more. Steve's antidote for dried up tires, what else but Oil of Wintergreen. A little applied to a genuine "shop rag", a bit of elbow grease and the tires cane back to life ! The flexi car were hot lapping once again.

I'm going to dig out some more of the old racers and see what can be done with them ?

 

 The red white and blue car is a replica of an old GORDON JOHNCOCK Indy car complete with a "seasoned" Flexi 1 chassis and an old Parma diaper motor.  The yellow stock car is based on a PARMA Flexi 2 chassis with and old Super Wasp arm from the '90's...it once competed at the old SPEED ZONE Raceway in Hightstown NJ near East Windsor Speedway with a 16D for power.
