Show off your latest acquisition :P

It was Vette week here as two arrived. I picked a Carrera and a classic Scalextric.

Two beautiful cars! I am partial to the yellow one though, it looks the business!

Lots of things to like about the L88 Vette...

1-It's yellow and black (SCC colors and my favorite combo)
2-The wheels (TA wheels are one of my favorite styles)
3-The sidepipes (they just look great on this car)
4-The #21 (David Pearson's # when he drove for the Woods Bros-my last name is Pearson)

Only thing wrong is it's a Chebby (I'm a Ford guy) :lol:

My latest slot car for 2018 is the Scalextric Falken Tire Porsche 911 GT3. I raced it right out of the box three weeks ago with only a tire change to PG-XPG tires and managed a third place finish. It seems to be getting faster every time I race it. I love these new inline setup chassis and I hope that some of their other GT cars will be converted to the inline setup.

I got this Matra from Slot.it. I have to say I love it, and your review helped me pull the trigger, Harry. Thanks.

I have the Gulf Racing RSR, right out of the box it's crazy smooth. I love it!

In hand, side-by-side and considering the small price penalty with NSR,
these days, it is worth every extra penny..... and Eye Candy to boot.

Look around you can find some great deals on LMM's, the newest releases
not so much, but deals are to be had.
