Another fun night at the C.A.R.S. Vintage Slot Car Club. Here are some pictures:

these are John's (Steves's friend) cars, all hardbody cars with various vintage to newer chassis as well as a few vintage cars, including a Cox Cuc. Great grouping of classic hot rods and customs. Hope to have John on the track at one of our upcoming vintage races.

a few cars from Pa Glenn's (the "other" Glenn :) )  collection. As always, Glenn brings rare color combination cars and mint in box cars to show.  I especially like the Cox Matador, which after seeing that, makes me want to add a few of these Cox boxed cars to my collection.

and Rodney's custom builds. All are either vintage chassis and parts or scratch built with various vintage parts and bodies. Rodney's cars are always well built and look great. 

 

   Se you all at the June meeting.

Glenn,

 

 Sorry I didn't make May's meeting, looks as though you guys had quite a few New/Old cars on the tables including the HO scale stuff.     Really nice to see John's line up of vintage slot cars. That Dynamic chassis has lots of possibilities as far as body style choices, I know that OUTASITE has a Can-Am style body currently available that was actually offered on that chassis back in the day.

 

 Pennsy Glenn's Matador collection is really something else. I never knew COX made a Matador...of course the race cars, no matter what scale are my favs! We have to schedule a get together up at TRAINS & LANES one of these days. They have a really cool Tri oval that I once raced on back in the 1990's.

 

 I see that the Can-Am cars are multiplying, they're one of my favorite class of race car. I hope you plan a vintage Can-Am style race soon using those brass/wire chassis that we have.

 

 Rodney's white PORSCHE in the last photo is really cool, great job on all those panel lines. I especially like the orange tires on the car ! Looks like a true Murder's Row Line-up there ! I like that green Kellison GT, I've always wanted one, maybe I'll get to it this year ?  

 

 I want to thank Jersey Glenn for the great photos and for all of his efforts in staging the vintage races for the group !!!

Pete, my pleasure to part of all things vintage. Yes i plan two different classes for the near future to race: 36D anglewinders using any production chassis, and the late 60's/early 70's Can-Am cars. For this class i am trying to find a good source of new small can motors that we can use, something a bit lower in power than the motors we use in Retro Jaildoor, as i don't want us to wreck the older chassis.
