Hey guys, I've been out of the loop for a while....but whatever happened with the company "Nu-Rora"??

I'm seeing a few auctions from RRR which are showing some Nu-Rora items.....


I knew Nu-Rora was up for sale at one point...but didn't know if the company ever sold. I'm fortunate enough to own a couple of thier Camaros....and one set of thier Chevy wheels which I used on a resin convertible Camaro custom that I did.

When I saw that, I immediately wondered if RRR was considering using Nu-Rora's equipment to make their products using injection molding instead of resin casting...

hmmm...

Hmmm...so RRR did buy Nu-Rora...... I can't seem to get RRR's site to come up for me this morning.....so I guess I'll just have to be patient and wait to check it out.

Anyone know of they still are selling those chevy Nu-Rora wheels? :confused:

Not sure...but I drool over the RRR releases at least once a day...

I'm building a super mag stable at the moment...but I plan on picking up a few of the beauties in the future...I just hope there are a few of the LTD's left by then.... :thumbsup:

the 37 ford would be better if it didn't look like the guy was "swimming" in a pool instead of driving a car. I don't know if he's out of scale or the cars a tad bigger.

When I went to the Mr. Coney Slot Show in Chicago back in October there was a man there that had the Nu Rora Mach 1 Mustangs. I asked him about the cars and he said Nu Rora went out of business. He purchased Half the exsisting inventory and someone else purchased the other half.
He's a regular at the Midwest Show. I don't know his name. The cars were well priced.

When I made my last purchase from Nu-Rora about a year and a half ago, the then current owner (who was in the Houston,TX. area) told me that he had a sweet '37 Ford with trailer in the works.

I've seen the RRR auctions for some 'Stangs and the '37 ford coupe with trailer .........I just wish that I could get RRR's site to come up so I could browse thier site to see what they have.

I was on the RRR site 3 days ago. The site was a bit on the slugish side so I didn't hang around too long. I did*, however, see the rod and trailer. The pieces were very nice looking. I am sure the site will be up soon. On the Bay, Wert Wert even invites buyers to RRR to buy the rod and trailer outright. :thumbsup:

That '37 is incredible! I had the old Nu-Rora site bookmarked...but the link I had no longer worked.....THANKS for posting the new link.


Sadly, I don't see any of those Chevy wheels that Nu-Rora used to sell.....

I also don't see any of the Nu-Rora Camaros listed for sale either.....I guess the two I have must be rare now :)

Phil has been off line - he just got back on line Jan. 8th. From past experience he pulls his web site on weekends to update it.
I ordered all the Mach 1 Mustangs and the Boss 429 Mustangs Thurs. the 11th and they came in Saturday.
He has the NU-RRR '37 Roadster. All of them with trailers. That would be the black (4006BK), the medium blue (40006BL), pearl white (40006WH), finished with chassis and box = $47.00 each.
I have a brand new catalog if anyone needs any prices or order numbers. And he has in stock the raised white letter tires. $3.00 for a set of 4.
I don't know what Chevy wheels you're talking about. If you send me a picture I could look it up in my catalog.
Any questions, fire away.

Those cars are beautiful! Would you guys run them on your track's, or just have them sit in their boxes?
If they were going to sit in their boxes, I wouldn't buy them. I would just look at them on the website.

Yeah, I agree....I'd definately run those '37 Ford's too..... just because you run a slot car doesn't mean that you have to abuse it ;)

I run everything I own...including some of my customs that might be fragile.....after all, it's a slot car...not some diecast custom.... :thumbsup:
