OK, you guys forced me to open up a box from the past. Here are my old models from 50-55yr ago (now 63). You can see Ala Kart, I was into gassers, even making my own frame out of brass tubing for the black GTO. A few static friction cars (the pink 58 Buick I got from the dealership when my Dad bought his brand new 58), an Edsel, and Continental. The Andretti Indy car was a clear plastic slot car body that I made into a model, the blue spagetti exhaust pipes where made out of household electrical wire and tips where from paint brushes!!
