Please do Wes! I like the odd-ball cars that you just dont see everyday. Some of those old Volvos would be cool, just to put something different on the layout. Im thinking maybe even a small European village layout, with alot of BMW, Volks,Mercedes, and Volvo.
That is a bit pricey Wes. Maybe its not so bad if that includes shipping. I guess that's the price you pay to get cars you just wont see on the shelf of your local hobby shop. If you can hold off for a week, I have a slot car show-N-sale comming up next Sunday (the 26th). I will look around and see if I can find a decent looking Mini Cooper there for you. Give me an idea of what you want to spend and maybe I can get you set. :thumbsup:
that would be cool.. let me know what you find. I would appreciate it.
I never find any good slot car show in maryland (we only have one in essex, md - its good one but only like 12 tables thats it) I like to see more choices.. is there any good slot car show near maryland or like pa? nj? wva? where i dont have to drive long ?
on the left under GT Racers is a Mini Cooper. The price comes up as $24 at first, but that's with a NOS chassis and the trim details painted. If you use the drop-down selections you can order it as an unfinished body only for $15. This guy's stuff is GREAT...
Edit: btw, did you go to the Essex show today? I went and got a bunch of stuff, mostly bodies. I did see the MEV Cooper there, and also a resin version of the new Mini, but I dunno if that one was for Tjets...
The show next week is in Parsippany NJ. It's a long ride, but I've done worse for less! LOL I also read a post just today about a show in Pittsburg PA on October 31st. I cant make that one, because it's the same weekend as the Chiller Weekend of horrors show.
Let me know if you are coming to NJ...I'll buy you lunch!
Additional Note: look at the topic under this heading "box stock....Slotcar Show in Pittsburg" for details.
oh man.. I didnt realized that there was a slot car show in essex , md today!! Um I am looking for '65 mini cooper body that will either fit tyco or tomy chassis.
I dont know if i can go there cuz my wife is 4 months pregnant (she is on "high risk pregnancy" means she must be bedridden during the whole time not sure and I have been busy taking care of my house, work, cook , etc..
Anyway like i said i wont be able to go anywhere. but maybe after 5 months i will hopefully.
