Mm? Seem to be a lot of new cars here so maybe this will be out of place but when this little lot popped up fairly locally on FB Marketplace at a 'not to be missed' price I just had to jump in quick. 

Why? 

Nostalgia.

The first pair of Scalextric cars I had were the BRG AH 3000 and white Mercedes 190SL - but 'Baby Blue' would have been my preference. Add to that both cars LOOKED complete with minimal damage - underhanging number plate on the AH and ONLY the number plate remaining of the Merc's front bumper, they looked like they might respond to some TLC.

My original AH made the transition from home racer to the club track with gradual 'schoolboy affordable' mods. Initially outrageously wide alloys with racing slick and then an MRRC 3-pole motor. It was never a race winner but great tail-out fun and fishtailing all over the place.

I just HAD to grab these  Cool
