Peter your cars look brilliant, I like both of them. The 962C is different to the majority of 962 slot cars.
Mark, I forgot about the Porsche formula junior cars. I have 2 or 3 of them as I like running them despite the guide having issues on the lane changer track.
Frederic your 2 962 Porsches were designed to spin 360° around the guide blade and are very common models in the uk, they were sold separately for about £10 as well as in a set. With good tyres they are difficult to spin round as they are good performers despite the guide blade.
I have the Martini 918 from Carrera, it's 1 of only 2 Porsche models from Carrera that adorn my shelves. I will post photos when I can of them both. I'm surprised no one else made the 918 as its a great looking car.
Andre, if the 550 has the old open can Triang train motor in good condition it will be quick down the straights and with good tyres, a pleasure on the bends/curves/chicanes. The simple design of old Scalextric cars gives them a lot of charm aesthetically in my opinion.
