    Nice haul. Wish there was stuff like this available in 1:32 scale.

      Yes, That would be nice, But we race 1/24 and 1/32 on my 6 lane oval, and run just 1/32 on the road course . REL13

        Ahh, but there is an option of sorts. If you seek out "compact" cars in 1:24 or 1:25 scale (i.e. Air cooled beetles, mini coopers, Old datsuns, old Toyota corollas) they are physically about the same size as 1:32 full size cars.
        Have fun.

        Why doesn't my car run like that?

          Ok so FIRST, that SCAMP is fantastic. Been looking for that one. The others are longtime favorites. That Buick, I made that for a friend and lasted many years before it finally shattered lol.

          Dang it Ernie! You Big E...recon in force for the Scamp!

            Harry, That Scamp is a new release. I saw it in a hobby shop for $27.00. I may mount them on a H&R chassis. REL13

                I never would have believed it. A Mopar I never heard of? Scamp? Was it a Canadian car?

                  The Plymouth Scamp debuted in 1971 as a badge-engineered version of the Dodge Dart Swinger two door coupe. REL13

                    Don't know if anyone might want to read it, but a good history of the "kit car"

                    The models released were cool then and cool now.
