Now for something completely different

Well, as you all know,I've packed up most of my stuff, battlefield is gone (for now) miniatures all packed away, and...the camera crapped out. I'm putting up some shots of my slot car days. I built around 400 1/24 scale cars, sold them all but the two that I put up here awhile ago. One of the tracks was 150 feet long and went thru 3 rooms. Had to put mirrors up to see where the cars were.  I routed the wood track using MDF. None of these tracks were in my house...nowhere near enough room. I owned a 3 story building were my printing business was, so I had more than enough room.
I will be back to the Civil War as soon As I get set up again...for now I'm just goofin off.

  6. That is sooo cool. Looks like a huge amount of fun. My 5 year old son (and me) would be in heaven playing with that set up! Really fantastic, Captain....

  8. Really nice cars and track! Nostalgic for me: When I got out of the US Army in the mid '60s, I got myself a Cox Jim Hall Chaparral, with movable rear spoiler! It was a winner at the local tracks (most of the time)...until somebody stuck their hand on the track and I watched my Gran Prix car take off and destroy itself on a wall! Thanks for the memories.

  9. Hey guys , thanks for the comments...I know Its kinda off the wall compared to the usual, in a way I kinda miss the slot cars. They were good times. Jay...a Cox Chaparral today in mint condition is worth about 800
    dollars.
