Fellas,

 

The C.A.R.S. Vintage Slot Car Club meets Thursday March 5th 2020 at The Race Place in Farmingdale N.J. at 7:30 PM. 

 

March is when the annual SEBRING 12 Hr. races are held in SEBRING Fla. so for a theme this meeting we'll take a look at The 12hrs of SEBRING and it's long history both in scale as well as 1:1 racing.

Slot cars, photos, programs books etc. Many vintage slot cars fall into this category quite easily...

 

 We'll keep "TABLE TOP RACING"  as a subtheme throughout the year so some can develop projects under this heading and hopefully share them with the club when completed...

 

Photo below has Don Yenko in his Corvette leading the field down the short straightaway. Each of these racecars were popular models of slot cars "back in the d

 

Some years ago famous photographer Danny Sanchez caught a shot of the Penske Lola GT in the shop...the car is expected for our March event.

Pete, it's typical of the early books and it is by Demplewolfe who wrote about any hobby related subject he could make a few bucks off of.   You won't learn much by reading it, but it is fun to remember what this hobby was in the early 60's.    This book captures the early days.   

 

I sold my copy a long time ago, and just pulled this cover shot off the net.

Fellas,

 

 Good turnout of cars for the SEBRING themed event as well as members.   I'm posting photos of my cars this time, and I asked members to put up pics of their cars with some background info.  

 

There was a COBRA reunion as well, Mikey's Cobra #4 and my #5 are stable mates as they were build at the same time.

Matt,

 

 I got the book, it's pretty cool. Has lots of photos of "rail cars" and layouts, one of which is Jose Rodriguez's rail track.

It used to be an easy book to find and not too pricey.    The DJ Laidlaw Dickinson book about rail and diesel racing is a good one too, but it is getting pricey.  It's a small book printed by MAP back int he 50's.   It is nice history of the model car racing.

 

Forgive the awkward positionon the pics.

Mikey and the rest of the vintage slot car fans- yes i am doing well. Hope all is well with you all and your families. Looking forward to all things related to vintage slot cars soon. 

 

In the meantime, a few Ebay wins coming in the mail. Spending too much time looking online!  Another 36D car coming to hopefully be racing at Dom's soon.
