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 ?

Looking forward to tomorrow.  Will be a good night! 

 

Mostly bringing 1/32 scale cars, they run great downstairs!  However, in keeping with the October tradition...I believe a masked man will be getting into a getaway car!

 

Got something for anyone who wants a fixer-upper....

 

Gonna be great!

Fellas,

 

 OLD BRIDGE SPEEDWAY Salute this weekend at the Vintage Auto Museum of New Jersey. I was working overtime last night and got fried. I'll get there next month for sure.

Glad you guys hit the big track, I'd love to have seen some of Mike's 1/32 scale cars out there !!!

Fellas,

 

 Sorry I missed the meeting...I'd like to suggest that we might post some pics of our slot car "thingies" throughout the month of October to celebrate

"Things that go bump (slam, crash, and bang) in the night" ... like Banshees for instance !

Here is my (or should I say, Joe Mig's! I've owned it for at least 10 years!) Dynamic Bandit.

 

It runs great!  All original except rear wheels/tires

Mikey,

 

 Yep, I remember how well that car ran last time you brought it to t track. Doesn't that car have a special part on it unique to the Bandit ?

Hi Pete,

 

Are you referring to the body mount, which is unique to the Bandit and Super Bandit?

 

Also, you may recall we had raced "Big Can Thingies" back in 2007 and I won the race but DQ'd myself due to racing a size 16 instead of a size 36? :) :) :)

 

It is good to reminisce!

Mikey,

 

 A "thingie" race/event might be just what the doctor ordered...
