Still being worked on. Has been moved three times and finally ended up in my small back laundry room.

 

Started slot car racing in 1962. I have lots of vintage cars from the era I'm slowly restoring, too.

Welcome to Slotblog, Steve. That's a very nicely-detailed track, Steve! It's the first slot car track I've seen with its own cows, in the 50+ years I've been involved with slot cars. :)

Greetings and welcome. Steve,

 

Looks like lots of fun to drive!

 

Very nice track. Steve!

 

Is there a particular brand of 1/32 cars you prefer?

 

Thank you.

My favorite cars are NSR, Revoslot, and George Turner kits.

 

Here's my latest from him. Lotus 40. Also my scratchbuilt from my own molds and forms a Copper T73 with a Beardog chassis. Very quiet and smooth car to run.

 

BTW the track is Ninco.  

 

Thanks so much for the kind comments gents. Very much appreciated.

Nice work, Steve. I am in the process of reviving my half finished track from 2001. I got a little more inspired when I saw your track. Also saw  your website and The Chameleon looks exactly like the creature from The  Outer Limits (ep. 04-13-64) , my all time favorite Sci-Fi.   Cars and creatures, can't beat 'em!  :D  :shok:  :clapping:
