:o Really miss those days. Back then it didn't take a mega-million lottery to run a winning car just some ingenuity and elbow-grease.
I build models because GOD allows me to and because I can't afford the real thing!!

Oh Yeah, those are some sweet memories for sure, and thanks for posting! Back in the day you could build your car in the garage, then take it to the track and actually compete. I love the spectator cars lined up down the track too....
