Default Latest New Products (1972)

Was wandering through a slot car site (Slotblog) I occassionally look at and noticed one of the articles somebody had posted from a 1972 Miniature Auto Racing Magazine had some R/C product ads that I thought some people might be amused by - looks like the cost to fill my gas tank now would have bought me a Delta car back then - WOW.

Yes back then you had to machine the fins off the top of your airplane engine head to fit one of these.
