I see that the next Parsippany PAL Slot Car Show is scheduled for 11/22. Being new to the slot car show scene, is this show worth traveling from Albany, NY to attend?

How many vendors?

Is there much HO cars, track, etc?

Thanks,

Bob B.

Hi Bob, Where abouts in Albany? In Live in Colonie. I race with a couple of local guys on Wed. nights. You interested in racing at all? We used to have 4 guys and 3 tracks now were down to two guys and two tracks. Let me know Gary H. and Vince L.

Maybe would should wear name tags with our HobbyTalk ID...:)

I got a table! I'll probably be wearing a black 'Gap' hoodie. Don't expect customs, though (maybe a handful), I'm just trying to get rid of excess newer NASCAR, Vipers, Vettes, doubles, triples, etc.

I'll be there with tjets, afx, riggen, bauer, tyco-s, faller, atlas, resins, custom brass, junkyards, parts and more. I'll have a name tag with "Joe Saccomanno" on it.
See y'all there,
-Joe

Well, all I can say is I had a great time!!! I was a pleasure meeting Tom Stumpf, Bob Beers, Thunderjet Gene, Mike Vitale, Bob Brunne, Ed (sethanddaddy) Joe S. and Ray. I got about 3 hours sleep last night and was basically a zombie wandering around the show. I think I saw some of krazcustom's work on a table, but he was busy with sales and I was woozy from a lack of sleep. Neal, and Dom, I tried to looked for you guys, but I couldn't remember what I was looking for. :lol: Thanks for lunch, Ed, and the big bag of clix!!!! As usual, I ended up buying more bodies and the chassis deficit has again climbed higher!! I'm going to have a hard time deciding what gets toyed with first. I got a bunch of the 37 Ford kits to mess with, and I still want to try lighting one. I also got a beat up Aurora ice cream truck, so honda can box up those solid rivet chassis to send me!! The blue ice cream truck will be heading his way this Wednesday. What a cool day adventure!! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

P.S. I was told to stash away a few $$$$ every week for the superbowl show on LI. I guess I better!! :lol:
