Slot car racing!

One Christmas, probably in the late 1960s, my brother got a slot car racing set. There was a track with two slots, two cars, and a controller, which added up to hours of fun. That set was in our basement until we moved from Nova Scotia in 1977 - it disappeared then (to my knowledge).

But, after coming across this on today, I would love to have that set again - even though it would, technically, belong to my brother! Lots of great memories here, although our track was pretty bare-bones compared to this one by slot car enthusiast David Beattie, which is much like a model railway layout. This isn't the usual subject matter for this blog, but it definitely inspired feelings of nostalgia.
