Southern PA.... that covers a lot of real estate. Hope the offer is still good 4 or 5 months from now. Attractions on family list other than reunion: Gettysburg, Strasburg, Carlisle depending on exactly when.... and G.B.'s track!

SP,

I do Carlisle also.Got to love them cars..What season do you go?? :thumbsup: It's About 1 1/2 to 2 hrs from me.Depends on how far the foot goes.. There is some more tracks around gettysburg also.
The track is set up in a local flea market to try and get more interest in slot racin around here. It's fun. Makes people look when you get out an RO or Neo..Kids we give them stock P3's to run. They have a blast. The old track use to be a tomy set up but now resides in a freinds house.

Never been, it's 1100 miles from me, give or take, and on rare trips to that part of the world nothing was on the schedule. Believe me I've checked. Not all bad though.

It's like this. You go to a slot car show, you want to go with spending money. You come home happy with something in a case or a bag.

Send me to the import nationals, I'd want to arrive with a hefty line of credit and leave towing something behind whatever I got there in..... Even with the deal of a lifetime, the problem can be expressed as a mathematical equation. Spousal displeasure rises proportionally with an increase in size of haul, measured in cubic feet, whether in driveway, garage or "Dad's office."

Makes that $$$ t jet look like a bargain, eh? :)

Bargain

I understand Bargain...The $$$$ that is spent at carlisle would buy alot of Tjets.. :thumbsup:
I go I usually take to sell. We have 5 spots at carlisle( Chrysler mostly)
But try to do them all with some sort of car,rod or just an old project..
I found some pretty good buy on slots at carlsile also. People are looking for auto parts and Im looking for slotcars... :D Import nationals here are super wild. 1 year was a threat to close down the imports. Lot of routy people showed..
If you get a chance do carlisle..Its a blast from ford and chevy nationals to truck and motorcycle... :thumbsup:

I have thought about setting up an HO track and buisness in a local flea market. After seeing G.B.s I think I may go ahead with it. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

GB, I'm watching the calendar. lots of interest in imports but not that lifestyle thing. More for all kinds of middle aged sports cars and sedans, though in slots as in 1:1, if the right Galaxie or Falcon comes along, I'm hooked. It's Mayberry at my house.... I'm afraid the bikes are going to be in town when I am close by - got to draw the line somewhere.

Going to Carlisle is a bad habit. It starts off relatively painless, one show the first year. Next thing you know, your doing Chevy week, Ford week and MOPAR week, spring this, Carlisle that and you haven't evened mentioned Trucks or Bikes yet. :freak: Not to mention It never ends, well it does when your spending $ is done. :devil: Actually, you can have some great times and great shopping for that 1:1 project and every once in awhile you'll find something for your slotcar addiction. If you ever get a chance, you need to go at least once. Yeah, at least once. To have been so lucky. :eek: rr
