With so many fellow slotters selling part or all of their treasured collections, it's clear that the economic climate is biting some hard. But what if straits were so dire that after selling the 1:1 car, the furniture, and the wife, you were finally down to one slot car? which of your collection would be the last to go...

Thinking about this, my choice came as a bit of a surprise - after selling the Slot-its, flogging the Flys and sacking the Scaleys, I'd keep... my completely stock, non-mag SCX Ferrari FXX. At the end of the day, for me, it's about driveability, looks and great handling rather than outright speed, rarity or price. The FXX is a brilliant car - the car I run most often, and it's the one I get most pleasure from. 'Nuf said.

Hopefully a very hypothetical question - but if the chips were down, which would be your solitary slot?

Cheers,
Stu

I think it would be my Ninco Porsche 934, though I've actually got 3 of them, probably the Martini one, it runs very nicely and can be used in several different classes of racing.

Porsche 917 GT longtail Scalextric C22, my first love. With the right riubber a dream to drive with plenty of traction and weight in the right place. She is very forgiving and rarely bites back. And in 1970 she was the pinnacle of motorsport development - she set the shape of LeMans cars for decades.

Someone post a photo!

+1 - although I would like to try out the Slot.It Gulf GT40 before I make my final decision!

Ooh that's difficult.
OK I'll go with a Revell Simca 1000 Rallye.
Which one... Hmmm?









I'd probably have to pick one at random. But then again, maybe a Gold Maestro...?
Cheers,
Richard

One?

It would have to be the McDonalds Panoz Champcar from Racemasters. As far as I know there are less than 10 in existance.

Sorry, but next you will be asking me to pick between my children (err, I only have 5/9th of one at the moment, so maybe my cats)

It cannot be done
