Default Are there any Collectors out there?

I would like to clean out a small collection of OLD 1/8 scale Nitro on-road cars, stuff from the 1970's, 80's and 90's. I was building a collection for myself but over the last few years my interests have changed somewhat.

Those of you who used to raced with us at ProCar West might have seen a display or two that I did back then, or at one of the Region 12 races at Dana's when we still ran on-road there.

I would like to let this lot go as a lump deal to someone who is seriously collecting rather than put it on eBay and get involved with people who may not know what they are bidding on.

I can post details and pictures, or reply to PMs.

So let me know if there's any interest out there, or if anyone knows of a collector that might be interested in talking to me.

Thanks!

Dennis Samson

hey Dennis, how have you been? I am sure someone will be interested in your lot. You should come by the track one of these days...some of the old faces are still around.

Hey Garen, good to hear from you, long time no see!

I'm good - spent a year living in Colorado and now back in Irvine. I'm racing slot cars these days, pretty much takes all my time.

I will try to get out to the Region 12 race at GLARCRC.

Take care,

Dennis

If you are interested in Super J stuff, I have two complete new/never run cars. One with Glass pan and one with Aluminum pan.
I also have a proper Picco with new internals, header pipe with some spare bits.

Yep, that's much the same reaction I got to all my PMs!

How are you doing, Dave? Haven't spoken with you in years! Not in Colorado any more I see.

I moved to Highlands Ranch for just over a year to a new job in Denver, but it did not work out too well, so we came back to SoCal.

Thanks Terry - there's a mail on its way to you, and to the others who PM'ed me too.

Good to hear from a bunch of old friends again! Seems like lots of you have not quite shaken the nitro addiction yet!

For me, I just replaced one addiction with another........



And that's an old photo, the collection is twice that size these days
