My Tyco Nite-Glow Slot Car Set
One of the coolest toys I had growing up was my Tyco Nite-Glow slot car racing set. My dad gave me this slot car set for Christmas 1978.I still have the race set and as you can see from the box it was played with a lot. The cool thing about this set was that the headlights on the slot cars would light up during operation and the guard rails and center line on the track would glow in the dark so you could race with the lights out, hence the name Nite-Glow.
Auto World is a manufacturer of slot cars of vintage design and themed slot car sets, they bring back the magic of the heyday of slot car racing. There cars and sets closely resemble the Aurora slot car sets of the 1970s.
Auto World ThunderJet Slot Cars
The ThunderJet chassis is Auto World's adaptation of the classic "pancake" design, originally developed by Aurora in the early days of electric slot racing. Still immensely popular today, entire slot racing events are created around this chassis. It continues to be a favorite with collectors and hardcore drivers. Closer to HO scale, ThunderJet bodies mount over the chassis using two small screws. ThunderJets are retro slot racing at its best!
