Here's mine. The Energizer #0. This beast won 27 straight over two years. One day the right rear just flew off during a race. Earlier that day, my wife had informed me she was expecting. There was a moment of quiet and then (I believe it was my brother) one of the guys piped up and said "Yep, you can tell his wifes pregnant, the rabbit just died."

Yeah... I gotta horse.

Frankie.... My go-to guy. Here he is shortly after I rescued him. Rescued just because of the decal (which I clearcoated).



re-Shoed a few years later... dammit if this guy don't just keep runnin circles around everything I own... Maintenance?... oil sometimes. You don't mess with Frankie.



... that's like leaving fish to find fish. :dude:

aw man, I just saw (within the last two days) a complete decal sheet including that one and I cannot remember where. a much larger scale model kit or from a different slot manufacturer.
it'll come to me at 4 in the morning and wake me out of a sound sleep probably.

My warhorse

Howdy Here is My " rescue slotcar' It's an original candy red Aurora Mustang. I couldn't believe it was soo hacked up. I paid over 50 bux for it on ebay and thank god it has a good running wildones chassis under it. It now has plenty of freinds and see quite a bit of track time

It's not perfect and I tried to take the distortion from the Hot Rod's curved trunk lid out of the image. Hope that it can be used. The image is about 1 inch across.
Thanks to Al's pics, I was able to get the artwork a little closer to the original.
