I agonized for a long time about spending 40 bucks on a slot car body. But I had to have it because I have a 1:1 '65. Last weekend at a show, I broke down and bought it. I was not disappointed...

That's a nice piece. I haven't purchased any yet but the detail warrants another look. I've never seen one that close-up. Is it light green?

I had a 1/1 car also. It was a wagon. The fuel tank on those are attatched with straps and fixed behind the rear wheel in a well behind the rear 1/4. The straps rusted and the tank fell out :freak:! I was on the road when it happened, so I just jacked the car up and took it the rest of the way out and set it in the spare-tire well under the rear floor hatch. I ran a fuel line through the well. I drove it like that for two years! It was comical when it was time to refuel because I had to roll down the back window and stick the nozzle through there. No worries--except I was always paranoid that someone was going to light-up a smoke.......BOOM! :eek:

Thanks for sharing the pics.
cheers!
