Default HO Slot Cars Little race cars!

I bought a bunch of stuff on an online estate sale. A whole trailer of stuff but that's another thread. One item I bought was a HO slot car track. It was opened and used but mostly complete. Never heard of the brand but compatible with all AFX, HO, Aurora, Tyco tracks and cars.
Brings back a lot of memories teaching inn the basement of the pool hall arcade back in the 60s. I have it set up one the pool table.

Wow they are multiplying!
I put up a backstop around the track because they kept flying off. I put up pictures of my old race cars and pictures of tracks and races we've been too.

We have been cleaning out the basement in my childhood home. I came across a box that said slot cars. There was some track and some buildings. When I was young I had a setup in the basement with the pits and people walking around the grandstand. It did bring back memories. I still need to search more to find the cars and controllers. There was even a jump in the box I was looking through. Jim

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

All that does bring back memories. STILL not the best use of a beautiful pool table. But then I am very bias. Put it on the kitchen table like we did when I was a kid.

Skip, Skip, Skip, you got your panties in a knot over abusing a nice pool table, but thought nothing of ruining the kitchen table. There are other significant uses for a kitchen table that I appreciate, at least three times a day.
Dmw, you are bringing back kidhood memories. I had a big box full of Meccano stuff, to build things with.
