Fellas,

 

 The C.A.R.S. Vintage Slot Car Club meets next Thursday, June 4, 2021 at The Race Place in Farmingdale, NJ, at 7:30 PM.

 

The theme will be: The 24 Hours of Le Mans race held every year in June. GT cars sports cars, and sedans have all run in the annual classic. Slot cars, books magazine articles an photos are welcome, anything pertaining to the race and its participants is welcome.

 

 Sub-theme will be 'Blue Slot Cars' in honor of the French Blue that has been the international racing color of France for many years.

 

On a sad note, the hobby has lost owners Buzzie and Dolores Perri of Buzz-A-Rama. We welcome photos and stories of the good times that were had at Buzz-A-Rama. The photo of Buzzie is not mine, if anyone objects to me posting it, the photo will be taken down. The others are pics of one of the C.A.R.S. club's visits to Brooklyn and a few of Buzzie's regulars that came and made us all feel welcome.

Ah Pete, what great pictures.  I'm thinking, 2007?

 

I'll be at the meeting (June 3rd).  

 

Found it (the extra one, no, it is not for sale and I KNOW the club guys wouldn't even ask...):

14-year-old sticker.  At least 14 years.

I'll bring my Cobra.  The Cobra brothers will unite again.

Mikey, you could put that sticker between a couple of heavy books & it would probably flatten right out.

Mikey,

 

 IIRC, Buzzy gave all of the C.A.R.S. Club members as well as the New York vintage guys a BUZZ-A-RAMA sticker. Mine is stuck to the inside of the top of one of my slot car boxes.

 

 A few more pics from Buzz-a-Rama.

Hi Pete, once again, great photos!

Thank you for a correction on the year, however I still think, for some reason, it was 2007....the sticker I used I put on my small 8-car 1/24 wooden pit box, which Bob Emmott noticed and cheerfully remarked about at Dom's for a Retro F1 Race when Phillipe was there.  Because of the circumstances going on in my life at the time, I think that that F1 race was Summer 2008.  Alas, it is really not worth splitting hairs about.

 

I see Joe Mig, Myself, Pete L., Joe Lupo, Dom and Jimmy Roselli and Rob Rieu in the picture that I can accurately ID.  The rest are the NY guys and I don't have them in my memory banks.

 

Making memories together with friends is what life is all about, I will treasure my memories as long as I can.

 

Mikey

Mikey,

 

 We did go twice, your recollection is no doubt correct for our first trip. My memories aren't always on the mark...

Hi all,

 

Pete couldn't make it Thursday, so I decided to venture out to pay Jackie a visit and who happened to be at The Race Place but Nicky Traina from Staten Island and frequent visitor to Buzz-A-Rama and a friend of his Ralph D from Brooklyn.  CARS member Rodney was also in attendance later in the evening.

Nicky, Ralph and I got some time on the Hurricane and recounted stories about Buzz-A-Rama and Ralph brought along a bunch of his vintage cars.  Nicky also brought along some Buzzy memorabilia that was too cool for words.  I took some pictures of a few of Nicky's cars, Ralph's oldies and Rodney's Blue Cars.

 

A few of Ralph's oldies:

And lastly, one of my cars, a real beauty that Pete did up for me.  It is a cherished part of my collection:

It was a really fun night and it was good to see Nicky, first time in about 10 years, great to meet Ralph, Oliver was in the house and it was good to catch up.  

 

Pete and Rodney if you are still game for Thursday the 10th I'll be there with my HO Indy Box and 1/24 box.  Masks are optional and the Ice Cream is delish! :)

Best,

 

Mikey
