    Slot cars?

    Seems like guys my age might remember these more, so if you're 25 or so. Remember slot car tracks? I just thought about this the other day, went to my parents to see if i can find all my old stuff. Need to go back to search the attic so I can set up a track with the fiance! BTW let me know if you have a set you wanna get rid of

    I rember having a huge one that you drove jeeps around. They went across a bridge and through a volcano. It was bad ass!!!

    Funny story. I guess there huge in europe because I was searching for rally pictures and I started looking at pics of these rally cars that just didint look real. After a few minutes I relized they were lot cars.

    Apparently some people spend years building and paining slot cars to pro-race over seas. Crazy ish.

    FAO Shwartz in Las Vegas had a 400.00 Ferrari Slot car track. I almost bought it, but my GF said it better have a Vagina because she would cut my ass off.
