Just discovered this web site for a bicycle dealer in Chicago , click on the slot car link at the bottom . Two pages of vintage boxed slot cars and numerous others in the display cases . I dont know if they are for sale or the guy has a serious collecting problem : ) cyclesmithy
With all due respect to both especially Bernard who is my good friend, it is just not the same. If you have the opportunity, please visit Scott Bader's collection: not only the magnitude but the selective quality. One may have thousands of cars from the 1960's and 1970's from all around the world, from the oddest to the most bizarre like the Carrera airplane sets, it's still not like having thousands of the rarest and mintest American-built slot car kits and RTR of the 1960's in absolutely mint condition in their colorful and rare original boxes... I am sorry but those were the finest and most aestethically pleasing.
Of course it means cubic money, so not everyone can afford it. This fellow can, because he was a very successful businessman, just wanting to re-create his own youth when he was like most of us, unable to purchase those marvellous toys because he was too poor.
We have all been there...
Merry Christmas to all!
