The year is 1964 and I had discovered and got into slot cars a couple years already. Model Car and Track was in its first Volume and this was its Christmas edition 1964. My Eldon Daytona set was featured on page 16 and the present day collection has some of the cars featured then (resto mods so to speak) What a nostalgic selection of products over fifty years ago. Holy carp am I that old? Hell no, still a boy at heart. Thanks to Model Car and Track and VSRN for the jpegs from a disk I purchased years ago. I think I may share more of this stuff with the old timers that read this blog. Hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Mr. Ferrari1950
I've been racing slot cars since I was 12. Started with Eldon, routed my own track, raced H.O. and since 1999 back to 1/32. Had built a road course and oval at my school in H.O. four lanes for the kids to race. Now I'm retired since 2007 after 34 years of teaching and administration. Enjoy a variety of 1/32 makes and scratch builts. Tinker with the cars constantly. Have expanded to a 65' three lane routed MDF layout and its great fun adding to the scenery and racing.A bit of a collector (425+ and growing) , club racer and proxy racer. Add stuff costantly! Building and tweaking is as much fun as racing. Enjoy writing my blog. Good day, eh! thumbsup.gif
