  • Studebaker slot cars

    My brother is visiting us for Christmas and today bought a slot track for his cars. It is a four lane NASCAR themed track. He set up two lanes to check it out and set the NASCAR cars aside and set his cars on the track for this picture. We have been racing Studebakers all evening.



    He has:
    2 '53 drag cars
    2 '57 Golden Hawks
    8 Avanti's

    Here is a web site if you would like to order your own.

      ...And here they come round' turn four! The all new avanti pace car pulls into the infield and were racin'! The avanti goes low, the hawk goes high and the other hawk takes low! We almost had three wide racin' there folks! And out of nowhere the '53 goes low and takes the lead! But that avanti has other plans! He goes low then high and regains the lead! The croud goes wild! Turn four, and Studebaker takes the win!!! LOL[)]

          It was a nail biter, but after further review, it has been confirmed that the green hawk won by a bumper leingth!

            I used to race 1/24 and 1/32 hawks, avantis and larks at the big tracks that they used to have. I still have some cars, but they are worse for the wear - we used to race all out, and that meant taking some chances on the corners and at several hundred scale miles an hour, and flimsy bodies, that could be pretty damaging.

            I only have one HO, an early Atlas Avanti. It was a terrible car. The Aurora cars - there were no Studes then - were much better. The magnets made them stick to the track very well.

            Are all of these HO Studes readily available??

            (for some reason, I still have my Aurora HO track and my 1/32 Strombecker track in the barn)
