Seems like vintage slot car collecting is gaining a bit of respect from the mainstream car folks.

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

Interesting. Looks like the guy collects parts more than complete cars. Haven't subscribed to Hot Rod in... forever. When they moved from traditional hot rods to more of the import type street racers, I dropped it. Also their drag racing coverage became a bit lame compared to what I had become used to.


When Petersen dropped Rod and Custom, I found solice in their new publication, Hot Rod Delux. But they recently dropped that as well. They didn't offer a refund on the subscriptions, only that you could finish out what was left on your subscription with the online version of Hot Rod.


I didn't bother. The pictures just don't come out the same on a 12" monitor. I like to hold the 'zine in my hands.
