Cool Slot Cars and Track (TOMY) 1989

Hey everyone.....time to pull the kid in you out and have some fun....yes that's right, I have a slot car set (H.O.) that I don't want to play with anymore...it's not free but it is cool. TEAM AFX "American Super Speedway" by TOMY

It is only for sale if someone wants to IM me otherwise it is just to look at on this site I tried pretty hard to find it on the web and found one for $149.99.......now you know I would not sell it for that much..... Oh I don't know...how about $60

Wow man, you brought me back to the good ol' days. I used to love to play with the slot cars as a kid. I didn't know Tomy made any like that. I thought it was only Tyco electronics that made a majority of them. I would think of getting it from you, but not really a priority right now. Maybe sometime later, I will hit you up for it.

Hey snow you got that idea from Superman Returns didn't you? Yeah I bet you did. LOL

hehe... yes and no... its what i pictured... but i got the idea from what i used to do as a kid before i got into R/C planes.. i had HO trains and cars... they made railroad crosing pieces over the slot car tracks and everything... laid grass down a few buildings and some un painted all white people... i had cross road automatic switched so i could change tracks all from one spot.. i had all the toys to make a sick setup... but being only like 8... i could only go so far. then i got a lionel train set.. that was fun for a while.. then R/C planes... and now real planes.. but i still love my R/C stuff to its just to much fun to EVER stop doing... even as an old guy im sure ill still be flyin.

Damn does that bring back memories. I had a ton of Tyco slot car stuff when I was younger. The sets are all in storage now, but I remember that one of them came with two 280Z's, one was red white and blue and the other one was covered in Camel cigarette logos. If I ever get a bigger place than this 1 bedroom 1 bath apartment (closet), I'll have to break those out.

Daaaaamn. Old school memories off this one. I had a huge set with glow in the dark cars and lane lines with overpasses and all kinds of ****. It was one of the best christmas gifts "santa" ever left. I went through sooo many cars. . .

Hell yeah, I remember those big bodied slot cars...we had a place down here where people could race them on a big *** track, I am sure it had to be 40 foot long and looked like a NASCAR race track with a few more turns in the infield. Good times man...good times.
