      That is a good looking group! But where is the Ford? And I see that the chassis have *gasp* traction magnets. Easily fixed of course.

      Why doesn't my car run like that?

        Hey Auto World! We STILL need a 1970 Javelin to make a good set better!

        Scott, still wanting a TJet Javelin. (I have the AMX, want a Javelin)

          They all look good!
          Wonder why they redid the 42 car?

          Would have liked to see the Gurney 48 car!
          Maybe in a future release.

          I'd also love a #48 and please use the flat hood on the car and not the shaker hood scoop.
          Also the '70 Javelin would be a great addition. I'm making one out of Auto World AMX bodies by slicing two together. I'll post some pics later. It's a pretty time consuming project and I haven't worked on it for months.

            I understand that Round 2 has been bought out, I was wondering what impact that might have on the HO slot line.

            Here’s my ‘70 Javelin project.
            Two AMX bodies used to lengthen the greenhouse (as on real AMX/Javelins), with cut down spoiler from AFX Javelin, and AW Challenger hood scoop.
            the hood was modified along with the sides of quarter panels. I’m not going to worry about the different grills.

            We will see what happens to the slot cars. I hope it won’t be like Mattel when the bought Tyco.

              That looks great!

            I like AW, but why must their cars sit so high? They look like 4X4s to me.

              The cars do that to fit on the Tuff Ones style chassis. Most of the bodies can have the posts cut done and fit great on chassis with Tjet wheels and tires.

                  Cool, huh? I've got my order in with my local distributor friend. Don't know yet if I'm gonna leave the AW chassis in them (without the traction magnet), or power the whole fleet with vintage Aurora T-Jet chassis. We'll see when the time comes, there are options out there... -- Ernie
