Fellas,

 This month's meeting saw a number of publications that were part of the slot car hobbies past. An AUTO WORLD catalog was used as a research tool in an attempt to I.D. some of the club's members vintage possessions.

 

 

 As promised in an earlier post we'll take a closer look at some of the members cars. First up is Rodney's recently completed Ford GT, enjoy !

 

 

 Some pages from Auto World catalogs are below shown below the car photos to give some who may not be familiar with the catalogs some inspiration...

Joseph Migliaccio. Karma it's a wonderful thing.

Some people are like Slinkies... they're really good for nothing... but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

Fellas,

 

 Some of those slot car  bodies in the photos above are still available from some current manufacturers...anyone guess which ones and who makes them ???

 

How about some photos from the readers...
