Hey every one! I stumbled across this site looking for different HW body styles (mostly plastic). I used to race 1/24 scale slot cars in the 60's (that's right I said 1960's). A few years ago I decide to get back into some type of slots, so I figured HO might be the way to go with a home track. I built an oval track with a scale 1/4 mile drag strip above it. I also started doing some organized club racing and proxy drag racing. I found out that some guys take their racing way to seriously, and a competitive HO car can get very expensive. So I decided to stop racing. I found out that I enjoy building more with my imagination, than with my wallet. Last week I thought: Maybe I'll build another HO car....That's how I stumbled across this site. I like using plastic bodied HW cars to create something totally different than what is available. I had no idea that there were people that race HW cars. This place seems so laid back and friendly and you guys build some WICKED (I'm from MA) looking cars. I took my HO tracks down last year. I was going to set the drag strip back up this week, but it looks like I can have more fun with a HW dragstrip instead. I'm looking forward to building or modding some Hot Wheels now.
I hope I don't offend anybody by posting some of my HW to slot conversions....the new ones will be just HW to HW, no more slots.
