  • A "like new" shipment of future slot car conversions.

    The transporter dropped off some fine previously enjoyed used cars for slot car conversions. The guys had a chance to look them over . Some of the chatter went like this, "Sheesh, Ford Mavericks!" "A Monza!" "Pontiac Ventura?" " Oh brother!" Hey, keep your comments to yourself! Well the Javelin is cool. At least we have mainstream 50's classics. They all headed off for another lunch break after their inspection.

      Hope you consider loaning some of those bodies to someone who makes molds. The '57 Chevy and Ford are ideal running mates for a retro stock car series.

        They look like promos or are they model kits?

          Thanks for the info. I'm checking out the bodies shown on the site. I'm curious if anyone has experience with these resin bodies?

          I have one of 873Chris's Porsche 356 Coupes. They are a little rough, so you need to spend a lot of time getting the body ready for paint, but makes a good representation of the car. I think I got mine for $10.00 so not too expensive to try one out.

        Those have made the green eyed monster in me play up. The '57 Ford, the Jav and the Ventura especially.

          Nothing wrong with Mavericks!! I have an RMS Resins and “mystery” Mav in my parts bin. They’re fun to run.

            Really like the unusual subjects and I think street cars make for really cool builds.

            Even more so when they replicate cars that you have owned, or had a personal connection with.

            AMC stuff is rarely well represented - and that '57 Ford versus '57 Chevy looks like a great pair to build.

            Funny how Ford was more popular and outsold Chevy in 1957, but today we only hear about the '57 Chev.

                Great haul.
                Is there any indication of who made them?

                  Yes. The Pontiac and the Chevy Monza are by Linberg, the rest are Revell.

                  Those look great! what did you use for chassis. I used a Scaley Torino chassis on one I built years ago.

                    The Left has a Slot Classic/Pcs chassis, The middle on has a trimmed Carrera chassis, and the white one is on an old Revell aluminum chassis

                  There's a '57 Ford on the bay and I was sorely tempted but postage to NZ was nigh on twice the price of the car so chose to flag it. Maybe something Carrera could've sorted back in the day.
