      Do you know that my father was always inventing some type of little motorized car down the basement of our Cleveland homes. I recently even found that he had a patent registered to him online although it wasn't for a car. Thanks for the memories. PS did ya see the costume selection for Donna?

      Great lens! My husband loves slot car racing, won a car years ago doing it. Now it seems most of the public tracks are closed down; everyone plays video games and the only options are building your own tracks...but then there is limited competition!
