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. With the help of dozens of great color photographs, this nostalgic history looks back at vehicles, tracks, packaging and racing memorabilia from such popular slot-car manufacturers as Aurora/AFX, Tyco, Scalectrix, Strombecker and Cox, as well as dozens of smaller toymakers. With forewords by real-life racing greats Jim Hall and Dan Gurney, the author also discusses the short-lived world of professional slot-car racing, in which he was a participant.
