  • Slot Stories #4-Carrera Flying Lizards!

    Carrera RSR 1/32 Flying Lizard Porsche, unobtanium now.... a favorite from years ago. The story behind the car.
    Thanks again to Steve Sawtelle for the help during the event I did with the team, he's shown during this short video so keep an eye out!

      Cool! I remember the years when the Flying Lizard cars were unstoppable, was one of my favorite race teams.

          One of my all-time favorite liveries, and Carrera did a fantastic job modeling that car. We don't race Carrera cars often, but that doesn't stop me from collecting them and the Flying Lizard Porsche was a real winner! Thanks for posting your video Dave.

            I remember Dave asking if I'd be interested in going to Lime Rock to help him with a demo track. And oh by the way, we'd be setup in the Flying Lizard pit area for the whole day. That "decision" took me all of about two nanoseconds to make. What a great way to spend the day!

              It was my pleasure to have you help out that day. It was like a dream come true to be in the paddock with a real team racing slots. It meant so much that you helped me and I will forever be in your debt.

            Thanks for sharing this history! I saw my fist Ferrari Challenge race at Limerock - good times.

                Great story. You're right about them being unobtanium, I covet my 1/24 car. Took me a long time to acquire. Still race it though!!!

                  At the time when I bought the cars for the project with the Lizards they were cheap and stores couldn't get ride of them. I bought 6 of them for $25.00 each. These three, I sold 1, I have 1 I have raced at my club and still one in the case.
