There was a time when old guys ruled Florida Retro racing.

That is TonyP on the left and Terry Tawney on the right.


I was going through old folders recently to find some family photos and I found this one. Today our combined age is 212. Hard to believe. We are still alive and kicking and still racing slot cars.


Life is good. I miss you guys.

Jay Guard, 


Aren't you glad you're not in this picture? LOL...

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

The old guys still rule. They are the backbone of the hobby.

This is quite true.


But I wish it wasn't true. :o
