Spring Fun Run at HQ 2017

Postby ShotgunDave » Thu Apr 20, 2017 10:02 pm

The Boss and the General picked me up in Ol' St. Louie today. I am at HQ!!

Here's a few of the cars I've brought, to do battle with the guys.

First up is the larger scale stuff.

Image

And here's the 1/32 scale stuff for the road course.

Image

And as promised, Rizzo and Ginger stowed away in my bag. This is one of many pictures they will end up in I'm sure.

Image

Stay tuned here for more coverage throughout the weekend!!

Glad you made it safe and sound Dave!. Sure am missing not making the trip this time.
I had high hopes of some good times, as I am sure will be had by all. I may still send some cars to battle with you guy's. if that would be OK.

Especially liking the 1/24 stuff. I think that is the first time I have seen built up 'giant midgets' next to 1/25, 1/24 model car kit slot cars. The midgets are big, but they look really cool.

I will be watching this space.

So just a little behind the scenes as requested by a few.

First is our door prizes. Many thanks to Slot Car Corner, CincySlots, Paul Gage, and Carrera of America!

Image

There is one lucky little man that will stow these away today.

Image

Road course ready.

Image

Oval is READY.

Image

Image

Ye Olde Skunkworks is as pretty as it can be which isn't saying much :lol:

After picking up Shotgun, it was a quick trip to the local hobby shop MARK TWAIN.

Image

Image

Had fun browsing and this car just had to come home.

So today we will be greeting our early birds and getting ready for some serious Slotburger action :)

Well after a great night of fooling around with some cars and a great nights sleep, this is what I was treated to this morning! Cindy's world famous biscuits and gravy!

Image

While we were at Mark Twain Hobbies yesterday, this little Ferrari made it's way into the bag to come home somehow. :angry-tappingfoot: Thank you very much Harry and Cindy!

Image

And also while we there, I found this great 32 Victoria kit. it will make a killer modified.

Image

Some of the guys won't be able to make it this year and I am really going to miss them. You know who you are. For the guys that will make it, I can't wait to see you all again!

LOL sorry Bob!

CG Slotcars just had a box come in and all I can say is WOW!!!

Image

Plenty of goodies for the guys.

These new inserts are just fantastic too. Had to spray one in primer to get a good look.

Image

Image

And I was told the top secret project was on the way. Not bad at all. Very light and seems pretty tough. I think I know a guy who will build it :)

Thank you sir for the incredible generosity for the racers, it's much appreciated.

Sorry for the break in coverage guys. It's been a busy day of racing and eating!

Here was the morning's breakfast. Cindy outdid herself on this one!

Image

Here's Harry holding court. He's giving Gentleman Norb and Oldtymer a lesson in resin casting/mold making.

Image

A few pictures of the carnage being inflicted on the oval. These guys show no mercy!

Image

We even bashed in the Mayor of Dixon's 40 coupe!

Image

The crew were racing the wheels off the Carrera 57 Chevys.

Image

And now, Harry is preparing part of our supper. Pork steaks as big as your head.

Image

Stay tuned for more coverage after we fill our bellies and re-fuel!
