I REALLY Wanted This Slot Car Circuit For Christmas

Illustration for article titled I REALLY Wanted This Slot Car Circuit For Christmas

I love slot cars. I remember building tracks with my dad and my brothers, racing old sports prototypes, old school F1s and two Porsche 911s. One of the cars was the RCR 917, so I was blown away by this custom racetrack.

It's a slot car circuit encased on the RCR 917 exactly as the one we had, a perfect reproduction of the car that Vic Elford and Gerald Larrousse drove to victory at the 1971 12 Hours of Sebring:

The RCR 917 is a faithful reproduction with fiberglass body panels true to its original shape. Specifications: rolling aluminum 3-piece original-style center lock wheels, race-worn tires, working headlights and taillights, and inside…a beautiful 1/32 scale wooden slot car raceway, featuring handcrafted, period-correct signs, banners, aluminum Armco railing, trees and structures.

Beautiful. And expensive, I'm sure. The price is not listed, as they are built to order according to your specifications. [Slotmods via Bornrich]

I was reminded this weekend of the Dukes of Hazzard slot car track I received for Christmas back when I was 9 years old. Came with a General Lee and a Roscoe P Coltrane cop car with working flashers. The track featured a jump in the center....that almost never worked. But when it did, wooohoooo I thought it was the coolest thing ever.

I was a redneck as a child in Massachusetts. It confused my parents a great deal. Should have seen their facial expressions when I asked if we could paint a confederate flag on the roof of the car.
