Don't know about 50, but if I took individual pictures, we could keep going for a while.
Here are a few random pictures of cars I race on occasion.

GT Model 1/24th vacform on a Fleischman chassis (ugly but reasonably effective)

1/32nd Lancer vacform bought as is and frequently used, it is quite fast.(notice the added Fly mirrors if anybody has more of those, please do tell, I am running out)

And a Hippy/Happy/Hoppy new year to you all.

Here are a few more (all 1/32nd)
Long tail P2 built by grafting a lump of balsa on the back of a Scalex P4. I sold this at a swapmeet near Paris a long time ago, weirdly enough around 15 years later, I found it on Phil Smith table and bought it back (for about a third of what I had sold it for). I will now race prepare for the vintage meeting at Champagne Mouton.

Straightforward build of the P2 fibreglass by J Bacon, both on Riko chassis.

And just to show that I don't just do cra**y old cars, here is a more recent Testa Rossa converted from a Hong Kong toy. This is a really bad early job, and is on my to do list for a total revamp.

It uses an ingenious suspended motor pod system (long before modern brands "invented" it).

The problem is that plasticard is unstable and they have become brittle, I dare not clean them.

PS: When Alan was saying 50 photos, he was understating the number. Under the heading Ferrari, the spreadsheet says 976, mind you there are some duplicates.

The Fly Lola T70 in the Sunoco livery really put them on the map in the mid 90s.....but the Ferraris were definitely game-changers. Lovely cars that were magnet fast and could be easily tweaked for non mag racing.....lots of vintage fans HAD to have them. A great collection, @alexis in greece !

Here is a car which hasn't been done by the modern resin guys, and it's a real shame because it is really good looking.
Decades ago, I found a lumpy vacform (done in the 60s by MRRC) and set to making a reasonable slotcar out of it, back then I used a lot of Ninco classic bits (driver, interior and wheels)

Although lumpy, the basic shape is really good (much better than the Tamiya version) I am quite pleased with the end results, but it clearly needs "updating"
