Hi all, I thought I'd add some pictures of my little Lotus 16 collection to the Vintage Slots thread. I was given a box of Scalextric/Triang slot cars and some track back in 2010. This included 4 cars, 2 Lotus 16's, a Mercedes 190sl and an Austin Healey 3000. I restored these cars to the best of my ability, and I have collected a few more of the Lotus 16's over the last 6 years. Some still need a little TLC, missing mirrors mainly which I pick up every now and again. Here's some pics of what I have at the moment. Made in Australia/NZ (Type 2- correct me if I'm wrong) Made in the UK. (Type 1 Big Head) Made in the UK. (Type 2 &3) Made in France. (Type 2) I also came across a set for sale from the US a few years ago when the Aussie dollar was worth more than the US dollar. Looked good in the pics, had what looked to be like 2 complete Lotus 16's, and for US$125 I got a bargain. I was quite exited when the box turned up a couple of weeks later from the US. Even more when it looked like it had never been used. Plastic fencing is all still connected as one, Rubber track is flat and shiny (shows aging in some places) Oil bottle has never been opened. And the original booklets included in the set are like brand new. Box has some wear as you would expect for a 50+ year old set. I'm always looking to add more Lotus 16's to the collection. They're always popping up on Ebay, some at ridiculous prices, others within my price range. Hope you enjoy the pics. cheers Matt
