We had two great museum tours yesterday, one from San Diego residents, another by a large family of enthusiasts from Vancouver, members of slot car club up there.
They were quite thrilled with their visit and even brought us a bottle of Canadian whisky and some Belgian chocolate. We encourage such donations!  :)

A new arrival in the collection: this splendid 1/24 scale Chevy Ford (I thought it was a Chevy, but I am now told it is a Ford) truck body produced by International Engineering in 1965 and artistically painted by one of the two greatest period slot car body painters, Bob Kovacs. While some of the super-thin white tape has now "left the building", it still looks pretty nice does it not?

Can't see a lot but it is a Ford. 99.9% sure.

 

Great add to the museum.

It does look like an mid-'50s ('53-'55) Ford, doesn't it. :)

Definitely pre 56 Ford F100. It got the wrap around windshield in 56. Looks like a 55 to me.
