Marty Stanley Ford GT-40 Raffle

Postby Audi1 » Sat Mar 04, 2017 3:25 pm

The Ford-Ferrari Wars cars have just returned from their final Round at Luf's Targa and, as I mentioned in another thread, we're having a raffle for Marty Stanley's yellow Slot.It Ford GT-40.

This is the car that Marty had planned to enter prior to his untimely passing. He registered the car, selected the maker, the body type and the number (#8). He wasn't able to complete the car, due to his illness, but I told him that if he couldn't finish it up, then I would be his surrogate hands and get the car to the starting line for this event.

Here are a couple of pics of the car:

It has custom decals done by Mike (Zcarfan) that give Marty as the driver and his forum name, Florida_Slotter, is over the rear wheel wells on both sides.

It was also one of the two cars used in this year's "poster" for the Ford-Ferrari Wars Proxy:

It has returned from the proxy in good shape and I have it cleaned up, lubed it and it's ready to hit the track again for some fun-time laps.

Here's how the raffle works. We'll have a total of 25 tickets; $10.00 for each ticket and no limit to the number of tickets that any HRW board member can purchase. Payment will be to my PayPal account: apjarvis@aol.com, and 100% of the money raised will go to HRW (I'll PayPal Harry with the total raised from the ticket sales).

Here's one last opportunity to show our respect and appreciation for Marty Stanley, whose brass chassis cars are still something to behold. Add a little bit of 1/32 slot car history to your collection.

The ticket window is now open!

I never get to be in these raffles because I'm usually running them and don't want anyone to cry foul if I were to win. Since I'm not affiliated with this one, I definitely want in!

This is a great thing you're doing Allan. Helping HRW and giving us all a chance to have something of Marty's.

Thanks!

This is just amazing. Thank you. I'm just stunned.

What a great chance to truly own a classic that was built one of the best in our hobby.

Thanks guys. Keep those donations coming and we'll get this car in the hands of the lucky winner, pronto! Shipping is on the house, so it's just the cost of the raffle ticket to everyone who's in on this one.

Thanks, guys! We're over half way there. The drawing for Marty's #8 Ford GT-40 will be the day after we sell the last ticket.

Please keep those ticket purchases coming!

Actually, if we can sell them all tonight or by tomorrow morning, then the drawing will be right after we run Round #2 of the HRW TransAm Proxy race tomorrow. Now, that would be a fitting time to have a drawing for a proxy race car!

This is a great idea Allen!!
I wondered where that car would end up. I'm glad I was in a small part able to honor Marty.
Since I donated the decals as my tribute, I have also put my $10 in the ring for a great cause.

Cheers!

By my calculations, we have one ticket left to sell by 2:00PM today EST. It's looking good to have the drawing at the end of today's Round #2 of the RetroRacer44 TransAm proxy; I hope we can get the ticket sales finished by then.

Thanks to everyone for their support of this raffle. I think you'll enjoy the Marty Stanley #8 Ford GT-40; in more ways than one.

Allan

PS Paul Miller is chappyman66 - right? Kenneth Swanson is windyracer - right?
