Topic: Bill's Junk
Yesterday I was having an email conversation with Monte. It went something like this:
Somebody at the last race asked how many slot cars I have. I hear that one quite a bit, especially if they have just seen my upstairs room! Then somebody commented that now that I'm retired I should catalog all my slot cars. Tonight I gave that some consideration. After the first hour I started to wonder exactly what constitutes "a slot car". Does it have to be a complete car with a body? A complete ready to run chassis? A chassis minus the parts necessary to make it run? Then there's the scale issue. I have 1/24, 1/32, and HO cars.
So I thought I would post the question here. Assuming I have enough parts to complete a particular "partial" car, should it be counted as a "slot car" in my count? After starting in on this "assessment" last night, I realized there is a good chance that 1, I have WAY too many slot cars, and 2 that I may become overwhelmed in my realization that I am one sick puppy!
Here's some photos of my progress? Let me know if there is any interest in seeing any more.
