There is a large antique show that comes to Columbus, OH a few times a year. I usually go with my wife just to look around, very few slot cars there. When I do find them they are WAY overpriced. Yesterday I found this in a collection of slot cars:


The chassis is incomplete but not abused. I paid $20.00 for it.

Later I was looking in a box of die cast and cheapo cars and found this:


I asked how much, he said "Take it". OK!! I can do that! I looked at the rest of his items and that was the ONLY slot car piece he had.

Between the two chassis I have a complete solid rivet T-Jet chassis.

Looks like the more desireable dark blue 904, and in good shape to boot. Thats a 25-40 dollar car on the bay, depending on the wind. You might as well buy a lotto ticket too, you luck dog!

Very sweet, yeah?! How does it run out?
The chassis that came with the car is missing the idler gear, pick up shoes and springs. The freebie chassis has melted brush holes, but everything else is good. Both chassis are going into the "I'll get to it" box. I have a good chassis to put under the Porsche.

I'd have gladly paid $20 too! Too few nice blue cars - no early t jets - in my case! Always nice to find a pearl, and to find an orphan chassis too! Love to bring 'em back to life! One like that every once in a while makes all those forays through the antique shops and flea markets worthwhile!

You just missed the Toledo Toy Show. There were a lot of slots there, mostly overpriced in my opinion.

Do a search for Old Toyland Shows to get the full schedule.
