I'm not even posting this in News. It will be interesting to see if Scalextric update their box illustrated in the 2004 catalogue featuring the original pair.

It makes you wonder who this set is aimed at? I had a girl friend who was well into the series maybe she`ll buy a set? I lost interest in the series when they started cuddling each other! Give me the Sweeney, a Cortina and a Jag any day or The Professionals, Capri and a proper Jag

Why did they bother retaining the Torino? Surely if Mr Glaser and Mr Soul are too geriatric to party again someone could have contacted Audi and gotten them to pay to supply a red TT with a flash on it?

Sheesh.

Okay, signed (Auriol & Sainz) Toyota Celica Rally Champions rally print to first person to post a pic of a Cortina Mk3 painted red with white stripe.

(N.B. The print retailled at £80 so it's worth buying and spraying an old Cortina).

Nice try, but I think four doors is as far a shift in body style as I'm prepared to go.

Now, why - given thst it is dark here and you can't have just taken that picture - have you got on file a picture of a red Cortna pick-up?

Does this count?




Scott, you really need to update the picture below your signature... How about this?



Kind regards

The set's probably aimed at me Johnny
I used to watch Starsky & Hutch as a kid and that Gran Torino! SWEET. Hopefully the scaley version will do it justice. A black 'vette works for me too.

Hmm...the Sweeney. Yes a Mk.1 Granada would look good - if Carrera did it they could have a bumper sticker on it saying "At least this Granny doesn't stink of p155!"


I don't know why Scaley didn't do a CI5 race set - they've had the 3.0 S Capris around for ages. All they had to do was spray one bronze and the other silver, registrations VHK 11W and 12W, oh and include some small cardboard boxes to put on the track


Oh well, at least I can play with my 1:1 professionals race set, even though she's a 2.8 in blue and silver

Hey mark who am I trying to bluff
I`ll be buying the car too if it`s nice enough. Well I did buy David Soul`s single for that old girl friend (trying to get into her drawers). She looked like the blonde girl from ABBA. So as you can see I have no shame and no morals
now wheres me thick wooly cardy gone?

Why don't you just take the old girlfriend along to see Mr Soul in person, he lives about 500 yards away from my brother now, in London. Still may not get you into her drawers, but at least you'll see the car has probably stood the test of time better than the actors (allegedly, as they say on HIGNFY)

The wife won`t like that and the old girl friend wouldn`t be too keen either, he`s been a bad lad, slapping his ladies about hasn`t he
Alleged in the papers etc. etc. etc. I can get into this 70` s thing again though. Borrowed some rather fetching polyester lime green slacks from Scott earlier.

Slacks! Farrahs no doubt.

Hard to imagine any clothes which would look bad on me, but I think you've succeeded.

In fact, I have great legs for the kilt. Sadly my arse isn't.

We don`t want to mention those blue coveralls that I had to wear on "Short Circuits" either
Kilts are ok Scott. But that gear we endured in the 70`s way too many nitemares thinking about that
