I searched the archives for a glossary of slot car terms and found a post thread from 2010 referencing John Ford's glossary link. Unfortunately, when I clicked on the link, I was forwarded to a German internet provider page which seemed to say that the site was available.

 

Does anyone have a physical file copy of that Glossary that can be attached as a downloadable or if possible, hosted and pinned to the appropriate SlotBlog forum?

 

Or...please point me to the link.

 

Thanks!

Keep in mind that this dictionary is not up to date, but it's a good start. Some companies no longer exist, some people are no longer with us, etc., etc. :)

One other question relating to John Ford. I made a broad assumption that he had passed on after looking at his Twitter/Facebook links. The link above has a prologue by John which states that the Dictionary was part of his new dealer package when the dealer bought a American track.

 

Would anyone be interested in offering a bit of history about John Ford? His Twitter feed reflected one heck of a sense of humor.

 

Of course, if there is a thread somewhere else I've missed...

 

Thanks,
