One of my nice neighbors left me a message saying she saw a "box of slot car stuff" at an estate sale that was marked $20 for the whole box. Unfortunately by the time I got the message the sale was closed for the day. Good news was that it was open again the next day and I was there at the opening. Better yet, the next day everything was half price. The box was still there and a quick peek was good enough to know that even at $20 it was a no brainer to grab without hesitation. At $10, even more so. When I finally got it home I was very pleasantly surprised to see what my $10 bought me. Being a big Tyco fan, it was nice to pick up some great runners and a few that I did not already have. While I was there I spent another ten bucks for some miscellaneous electrical parts and scenery items from a model railroad collection. I'll definitely find a way to adapt these for my slot car track, especially the terminal strips.

I am not a slot guy but I would have popped on those for $20. Nice buy for $10

SCORE! particularly digging the yellow Mustang way back there... And was that Tyco 440 Pro Racing Center dashboard dealie part of the lot? Pretty neat!

(oh, and i think there's a "wanna buy a duck" joke in there somewhere, but i'm not good enough to dig it out...)

Everything was in the box for $10 except the scenery, relays, and terminals. There was the requisite pile of 9" corners and a handful of chassis. I wish the Tyco S was in better shape but it is missing a post. I need to find a wing for the #27 Ferrari because I think it's harder to find than the other one. Glass for the Z28 would be nice. But you can't be too picky for 10 clams.

Wow. At the cheapest place I can walk into, that's like 80 bucks worth of terminal blocks, let alone all the other stuff.

Hope you were wearing a mask....you made out like a bandit. :)

Nice score.
