  • Aurora 1/32 slot cars.

    I went to a Christmas craft/ antique fair this past December with the wife. Found this pair for sale for $25. Couldn't pass them up. Cleaned them up and got some PG replacement tires from Slot Car Corner. Did smaller tires in the front to get the guide a bit deeper. The Mercury is missing the hood scoop. These cars run really good! Click image for larger version

        I'll bet that those cars are a lot of fun. I had the Aurora 1/32nd Ford GT back in the mid '60s, it was fast enough to run on a 220' commercial track.

          Great deal and those are real collector cars. Glad you found them.

            You done REAL good!

            Love 'em.

            Back then I was the first in the neighborhood to have a K&B "A-Jet" powered car. All my peers had been poo-pooing K&B's as "junk". Once my A-Jet powered car dusted their azzes on one of their tracks, they sung a different tune: "I think I'll get a K&B!".

            During that same time frame, I also purchased a basic Aurora 8 set that was on clearance. I think I recall a Pontiac and Mustang as the cars. Had aprons, wood fences... made into a great short track oval. Had a ton of fun with it.

            Fun times.

              25 bucks for the pair, WOW! Guys are asking well upwards of $50 each for those cars at the shows, especially in that condition. The Comet is a hard one to find, especially complete. Don't worry about the hood scoop, it looks better without it! Thanks for the photos, and... ENJOY! -- Ernie
