Slot Cars

 Among today's collectors of classic toys, slot cars rank right up there with toy trains in popularity.
During the slot car industry's heyday in the 1960s and 1970s, nearly every town had a commercial track where enthusiasts pitted their vehicles against one another in scale-sized motorsport showdowns.

The Story of the World's Favourite Model Racing Cars 

by Rod Green

Cars and Equipment Past and Present

by Roger Gillham

The most lavish and comprehensive book ever published on Scalextric — the world’s favorite model racing car for nearly half a century — featuring hundreds of color images of cars, track, and accessories

Wasn’t it only yesterday that we were sitting on the living room floor, playing with our Scalextric, and refusing to go to bed until we’d racked up a personal best fastest lap without spinning off?
Actually, yes, it could have been only yesterday.
Despite the fact that Scalextric is now more than 40 years old, it is more popular than ever.
Now, Scalextric: The Story of the World’s Favourite Model Racing Cars takes a nostalgic look back at the cars, the track, and the accessories with which every Scalextric fan grew up; it then brings the story right up to date with the new developments that have kept Scalextric motoring on into the 21st century.
A fabulous, picture–filled tribute. Rod Green’s interest in Scalextric began when his dad bought him a set for his fifth birthday.
He watched, fascinated, as his father constructed the set, attached the transformer, and proceeded to “test” the cars.
Rod was eight when he finally got a chance to play with it.
