Aside from the track in the man cave and all the various cars collected, there also resides my ever growing library of automotive books, art, videos, static models, die casts and Hot Wheels. Its a cozy place to disappear to iduring the long winter evenings here in Canada. The library now fills five shelves on the far side of the track. Most volumes were picked up used but there are gems that were gifts or purchased out of sheer desire.



Being a bit of a history buff these latest volumes acquired on sale at a discount for birthday and Christmas are fabulous as references for decades that stir my soul.



Paul Parker has assembled great photographs of each decade and assembled them year by year. I just drift back in a cloud of nostalgia and never tire of reading over or looking again. Published by Haynes and real gems they are.


My wife thinks I could be up to worse. Gotta love her. Every boy should have a man cave.

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
