Yep, I was there last week. It's jaw dropping and you ought to see what they are working on. It took me back to the PM years. Busy bee's working on cool stuff in every office. Memory Lane was kicking it out too. It was an outstanding day for me. I had a chance to discuss the future, potential, ideas, etc. It's so bright I had to wear shades.


When I walked in, there was pegs of product on the wall to be viewed, touched, looked at and discussed. On one table was a big slot track full of test cars and some wicked looking wrecks throughout the track. I felt very comfortable there and it took me back to earlier years. The total mind set is so very different than others I've worked with, it was inspiring.

I'd love to get my hands on the Bronco and the Jeep CJ slots, I'll have to keep an eye out for new product.
I probably have 30 of his slot cars, including the new General Lee in both clean and dirty versions. The dirty one is a White Thunder. My boys and I love running them around the holidays.

The Thunderjets can be pretty difficult to race so Tony was telling me about a possible new version with some magna traction style handling added. I prefer the older Aurora look that the Tjets are and if they can make them "stick" better even better yet! There's an Avanti, Cougar, working on an El Camino. Cool, COOL stuff!

Cool, I'll have to call my train guy this afternoon. I can't remember the last time he was able to get Johnny Lightnings, but he has had a few batches of AutoWorld over the last couple of months, so I have picked up a couple of those.

I don't know how old your boys are, but my oldest was only 3 when I started our Christmas Eve racing tradition, and he loved it! Now my youngest is 3, and poor old Dad couldn't get near the track this past Christmas. :cry:

Oh I will for sure! You know I dig slots too so to be working on adding back the part of the show is a special opportunity for me.

I have one that is almost 7 and one that is almost 3. My older one is a car junky already, r/c and die cast, so I am sure he will love these too.
