Fellas,

 

 The next meeting of the C.A.R.S. Vintage Slot Car Club will be held MAY 6, 2021 at THE RACE PLACE 7:30 PM.

 

In keeping with the recent meeting trend we'll pay homage to several 1:1 scale racing events held around the world over the years in the month of May.

 

The Indy 500 has been a staple of racing history here in the U.S. for over a century, so bring your Indy slot cars and or Indy stuff car.

 

Another open wheel tradition held in Monaco, that being the Monaco Gran Prix has a rich history as well. Over the years many slot car manufacturers have seen fit to produce equipment representative of the famous event. See what's in your stash and bring it along.

 

And finally for the sporty car guys, the TARGA FLORIO event held for many years on the island of Sicily will be a theme that we haven't touched upon before. A timed event through the hilly country side that saw many automobile factories and famous drivers entered over the years.

Again there's lots of cars stuff out there as well as in our collections I sure that would  fit this particular theme that would be welcome this meeting.

 

PS:  Another subtheme, RED CARS

We'll start the photo session for this month with Rodney's Rapid Red Racers...including a back seat driver driven Monogram '40 Ford pick-up.

 

A bevy of Gran Prix cars in two different scales and a pair of red white and blue beauties.

 

 

 The last photo shows the "Outlaw" built by Rodney back in the day...

Nice bunch of cars guys, wish I could be there! 

 

It's not the Outlaw you're talking about Pete, but the "Bounty Hunter", which goes after those Outlaw Thingies, while still looking kind of scale - a nice job on that one too, and it corrects a weak point of the original design, the simple piano wire drop arm...

Rodney's Bounty Hunter is a period built example of excellence.  To be in the same club of Pete and Rodney is a both a blessing and joy, if ever there was an understatement uttered by a 40-something year old.

Thank you for your comments, Bill and Don! :)

Pete, I only know Mikey through the OWH & Slotblog boards. We've never met. He's always been like that during the almost 15 yrs. I've been reading his posts, I question if he has a mad streak in his body. :laugh2:

Funny you should mention the 15 years Bill, as I was writing one of the posts above I tried to tie in the fact that Pete, myself, you and Don are all 15 year veterans of the 'blog.

 

Anger usually gets in the way of time well spent.
