Fellas,

 

 The theme for the Thursday Oct. 4th meeting will once again be "Thingies that go bump in the night". We're giving a heads up to the group so that you can prep or build a thingie for the meeting if you like...

 

Look under the Vintage Slot Cars category for Thingies to get an idea of what others are building along those lines.

 

Don't forget the production "thingies" of the day, such as the CLASSIC Asp or Manta Ray, Banshee, etc.. I sure you guys get the idea.

The SHINODA Reunion is also a hot topic here on Slotblog so there's lots of inspiration available right here ! Bottom photo shows Chotia bodied thingies from "back in the day" !

 Also a reminder of our monthly theme, "O" is for OCTOBER. Slot cars/slot car stuff starting with the letter "O".  Below we find some more "thingie" inspiration...any U-Go chassis' out there ?
