We really weren't using the pool table and the track was supposed to be temporary but it's evolved.
Here's another car I found not a 70 AMX like mine. 71 AMX

Dmw, you are bringing back kidhood memories. I had a big box full of Meccano stuff, to build things with.
At least he put cardboard down over the felt.
My brother and I had slot cars as well. No track though.
We used to go down to the neighborhood hobby shop (3 D's) where they had a huge road course as well as a in Scale Drag strip set up. We would rent the controllers by the hour. I think it was something like $1.50 per hour.
Slot cars as well as Model Railroads seem to be making a bit of a come back.

That's a big track, I remember getting one for Christmas that was slotless called TCR (total control racing) you could change lanes and pass other cars. With in three days we had wore holes in the skid pads on the bottom of the cars from nonstop playing.

It is 64' total using all the pieces. 1989 Marchon, I've never heard of it before. But for $50 what the heck! I have 18 turns and about 8 straight pieces left.
