I still have a 1/24th Eldon set,  packed away with an old Lionel train set. Maybe time to get it from the attic and put it up again.................

Slot car track.

Looks like Ed Sullivan standing off on left near TV camera, and from right I think I see Jackie Stewart's long hair, guy with bald head has to be Stirling Moss, but the next guys???
I wasn't much good as a road race slot car guy, but I did build a lot of drag race slots early on. The Pittman 85X 6 volt motor was the top dog BITD and then Ram came out with their 850 Pittman clone with it's 7 pole armature and thinner laminations which added up to more torque. I was the same Joe, I blew all my coin at the hobby shop, but those were good, clean, fun times.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

I had a combination of Aurora and TYCO HO scale slot cars.  My Dad made me a table from a solid-wood door; I designed a track to fit on the door, 4-lanes wide, that had an equal number of right and left turns.  I need to dig that stuff out; it's been in my attic for years.
