WOW! You have a great collection! Talk about bringing back memories! I had a large quantity of HO slot car gear. Probably over 100 cars and never raced on a track with more than 2 lanes. I foolishly gave it all away.
Hi Geno, thanks! Back in '84 or '85 around 20 years after I got my first HO track for Christmas, I got another one from my wife and brother-in-law! Of course we raced a lot in an unorganized group here and at B-I-L's as he had a track setup too.
Stick with me, I am getting to a point about giving away your cars, LOL! Anyway about 1988 a good friend moved away and gave me a couple dozen cars and some parts, thinking he would never have any use for them again. Fast forward to about 2000. We had raced off and on thruout the '90s, And low and behold, the old friend, Jim, moved back here and he was interested in racing HO's again! Even though some were destroyed, parts used up I still had some of his cars he had given me. Some were my first string racers. It was a no-brainer to give them back and he was grateful to get a jump start on putting together a collection to race again. I threw in a few extras for some compensation too. He is still racing them and is the guy on the far right of the group shot above!
Here's a few more pics of more cars and parts stashed around here. The big tackle box was my racing box I would take to the track and the smaller one is builder parts. There's a cardboard box around here somewhere with cars and parts too, and garbage bags of track and such upstairs in the shop I think!
