Bob,
This is a great idea... I know on FaceBook, I'm friends with Golden Years RC. They have a similar, idea. I know that a lot on vintage on road items, kits, radios, videos have been donated to them. He's in California, you may want to reach out to him, I'm that he can help you with this awesome adventure.

I've got some people on the forums that are web savvy, helping with the tech side of getting it going. Gonna take a few years. It's history, it's not oing anywhere, but the people involved aren't getting any younger and frankly, it's getting harder to remember what's what.
Neither of these are alive. There have been at least two people inducted into the RC Car Hall Of Fame (Gene Hustings and Gary Kyes)...but there isn't even a virtual one anywhere. There are more than a few others that NEED to be inducted: Mike Reedy, Ron Paris, Roy Moody, John Thorpe, Bill Campbell, Chuck Kimbrough, and more and that's only the racers and builders who are no longer with us). Golden Years http://goldenyearsrc.com/ housed at a private home in LA, CA, seems to have a bunch of stuff...but mostly gas 1/8th scale and very little of it is online (and even that is limited to photographs).

Yes, I am willing to help with whatever is needed...coding HTML, taking pictures, scanning info into a usable online format...whatever. Something needs to get done. What do we need to do to make this happen? Anyone else game?

I was working on this for many years. I'm one guy. It turns out, it's damn hard. I've got about 1500 cars. I can only really restore 1-2 a year. It might not be possible to do it at the level I was hoping to do it. It's seems like it could end up a non-profit, full time job for 3-4 people.

I don't have the answers. Not off the top of my head anyway.

If you would like the history of the Florida state series it's on line till 2005 when I quit wriitting it. If you would like some sort of help. I can do that. Ive been racing since 1979. You bought my Delta 1/12th cars several years ago. I'm also the last orginal founding fathers of the Fla. state series still racing. And I was the first Region 4 director for ROAR from 1990-2005. Most of the people in the industry know me.
