Haven't posted pictures of these cars in probably over 10 years. Got a new phone with a nice camera so figured I'd share.

Very nice. I love those classic boxes.
I find myself collecting the boxes more than cars these days.

That Hoffman no. 1200 is a tackle box I think. I slightly modified it to fit slot cars. My dad found that at an estate sale a few years ago for like $20!

A Garvic kit chassis that I put the riggen wheels on. And what I believe is some kind of lancer back splash body? Painted that when I was a kid almost 20 years ago. This car actually runs pretty good with its big 36d.

A car I bought cheap mostly for parts, think I fixed a few solder joints and tried it but it was indrivable.

My first successful halfway decent scratch build. This car actually drives really nice. The Hawk body was bought just like that except the headlight tape.

Mark, can you show us the rest of the chassis in the above posts? That green Ford GT about half way down, looks to be too lisht to me. You could try soldering in some sheet brass ahead of motor between the two pieces of piano wire running to the guide. Your red stockcar has a '67 Dodge Charger body on it. I don't know for sure if it's a Lancer, but probably is. I have repops of a Lancer Mercury & Roadrunner that REHCO used to pull.

I’ll try to post some body off shots if I get a chance soon. That green car is actually pretty heavy. Those are around 1/8” solid brass rods.

A MKII that I thingified. Pretty cool iso fulcrum chassis with a stock testors 26d. The only thing I changed was the body mounts to pin tube and wheels.

I scored three of these BRM bodies NOS of eBay for dirt cheap, I built my second scratch built from them and other junk cars I scavenged parts off.

I thought that round brass was tubing, rather than rods. You could try another body, any body & see if it's driveable. if not, I'd put it on a chassis jig & reheat all the solder joints to see if some unwanted tensiion exists. i like the chassis on the red, white, & silver Ford GT. Some of the Ft Wayne, iN club racers were building similar chassis a few years ago, maybe they still are.

I actually did quite a bit to try and straighten the green car out and get guide depth etc right. The whole car just isnt built good to begin with so I was planning on cannibalizong it but never got around to it.

Last car in this box. Ancient inline dynamic. Car weighs a ton but is one of my favorites. Its really rumbles around the track with the weight and those weird gun rader? Rear silicone? Tires. Also always wanted a hot rod slot car. So I put this horribly painted body on it I snagged.

It good to see these old school builds, Its also good to see younger blood get involved. 

Can I ask how old you are. I am guessing you are in your mid 30s, Welcome. Glad you got a new camera and decided to share here.

I’m 30, I’ve been on this forum for forever just forgot my login and didn’t post much. I started racing slots when I was 9 and always liked the vintage cars.

I always thought that was a misconception? I remember seeing lists of all the bodies dubro made and a cobra Daytona was never on any of them. Could swear I’ve seen this body with a hawk header card. Also never recall seeing the dubro stamp on the inside of any of these cobra Daytona factory painted bodies.

Hey Mark, same age as my son.

I will now show him that it's not just a bunch of old guys( I know it mostly is) and the torch will be passed on.

I think the Cobra Daytona was Revell. I had one back in the sixties, but it is long gone. Busted into a million pieces, but it

wasn't a great racing body anyways. I tended to stick with the Lotus 30/40 bodies.
