      I have been looking at buying the Jaguar from Cincyslots. Can you tell me what the drive configuration is, inline, sidewinder, front mounted motor, etc?

        They are rear inline NC1 type motors in the ones I got.

        Wow! Back when I was accumulating cars (has it been 10 years?), the Testa Rosa and the #47 Jaguar were two of the most difficult/expensive Ninco to acquire.

        The XK120 represents one of the best shades of British Racing Green to my eye. And the tan top offsets it nicely. If I were to have my 1:1 E Type repainted, I would be tempted to carry it to the shop and say, "Duplicate this."

        Ninco Classics are a throwback to my memories of childhood racing speeds. Our SCANC group occasionally raced them years ago and clubmate Steve Acesta and I used to get together occasionally to race them on his and my short 4 lane. The perfect class for non-serious racing. Might be time to revive that tradition.

          Yes. We had some great times racing those Ninco Classics! They’re still among my favorites. I was seriously bummed when Ninco pulled out of slots. There are so many more classics they could have done. I have most of them in my collection including a few rarities, but that #9 Testarossa is one I am missing. I remember it being released as a kit.

        It is hard to believe the Jag came out 10 years ago. The review archive is always fun to peruse, Harry has done such a great job with the reviews over the years. The Classics are my favorite class to run, they are always our first race. The Ferrari Testarossa has to be one of my favorites along with the Porsche 356.

          I'm really surprised that nobody purchased the molds and produce these models again. Once you braced the rear axile and motor mounts on these car to get rid of the famous ninco hope they work great.
