  • Blast from the past - Fly Vette 2003

    Going through old reviews for the site and got a kick out of this one.

    Who remembers?

    Had an old Sony Mavica back then. Had to keep image sizes small because so many folks were on "dial up" with max speeds of 56K

        I bought the yellow one for my daughter when she was about 9 years old (she's 23) because I'd never seen a slot car featuring black people (still haven't seen another). I recently gave it back to her as a reminder of the fun we'd had racing slots and found it crushed up in the back seat of her car a few days later. I guess it meant more to me than it did to her. Ah, well...

          I know of two other cars. 2 or 3 years ago Carrera made the orange #34 '69 Talladega Torino driven by Wendell Scott. Dave K made sure the driver was correct. Revell/Monogram also made the blue #34 '67 Fairlane driven by the same man.

          Thanks, Randy! I never knew that. I recently saw a documentary about Willy T. Ribbs and wondered why he was never featured in a Slot Car. Instead, we get the General Lee Dodge Charger with a big confederate flag on the roof.

        That's way before my time here at HRW a Sony Mavica that's the camera with the floppy disk drive? and is that Thelma & Louise in that Vette?

          Yes sir. It was a beast of a camera. I think it was supposed to be the Thelma/Louise and that is what we always called it

          Interesting version of that car!

          Coincidentally earlier this weekend I Googled info about the Ninco Supra (Yellow Hat version) and found a review of the car done by Shawn Smith on this site, in fact there are a few reviews by him. This was before my time on HRW and I have never seen the name, who is/was Shawn?
          "I don't make mistakes. I make prophecies which immediately turn out to be wrong "
          "And that just shows you how important the car is in Formula One Racing"

            Oh Shawn did lots of reviews back then. In fact, he took over the original Slot Car Garage site and did great work. He decided to just join me and we worked together for quite awhile. He has moved on to other some do. But I still keep them all in the Ye Olde Archives.
