  • Slot Car Cartoon

    This is not a new one, but I find it is pretty much valid to this day:

    I found this on Instagram by Academia do Autorama (@academiadoautorama), translation to English by myself.
    It was posted on the wall at Le Mans Automodelismo (Curitiba, Brazil) and seems to have been made by Murilo Ferri years ago.

    That is pretty funny!
    Why doesn't my car run like that?

      I was once referred to as belonging to a "sub-culture" by a non slot car hobbyist friend. But, they were saying it as a cool thing (I hope ).

          Agreed. Very few know what I spend on hobby stuff but I assume it's thought of as a childish waste of money. That said I will admit to having very nice toys, as I would have liked to have when I was a kid. As the saying goes, "The only difference between men and boys is the cost of their toys".

          Absolutely, guys. Why do I put ball bearings in my cars? Because I couldn’t afford to as a kid. I’m safe from a spouse’s raised eyebrow and stern look because her horse eats more in a month than I spend on toy cars.
