I think for me the most iconic slotcar of the 60's is thr Cox Lotus 40. I can remember absolutely lusting after it as a kid but we could not afford it. It took me 55 years before I got around to buying one. In fact there are now 3 Sun .

I was very very lucky in actually getting all the parts and the car to make the 30, which was the earlier version.
