Australian Slot Car Publications

Recommended Posts

Triggered off by a post from Neil B on another forum, I've created a simple web page for Australian publications of anything slot car related.

 

It began with 3 magazines that I scanned, and Neil has sent me 3 that he scanned, which have ended up on here;

Australian Slot Car Magazines Index

 

I've shown in large format, so that us old farts can seen them.

:ph34r:

 

If anyone else has some Aussie slot car magazines, newsletters, etc and would like to share, please let me know.

Maybe we can build it up, and share some memories.

:)

--------------------------

Edit to show what we have already.

If you are able help by filling the gaps, it would be greatly appreciated.

Both of those scans were sent to me by Neil Bolton, hence credit goes to Neil.

I also believe that Neil owns both.

I am sure Neil will chime in soon . The copies Neil has are from original mags owned by Lenny Broke . He allowed me to copy his mags (many thanks Alan ) and I forwarded them to Neil .

Lenny and Peter, Neil has confirmed that those scans are of the copies he made from your magazine/copies.

 

So, is it ok with you 2 guys for me to use the scans, and give credit accordingly?

:huh:

Steve,

As I said Peter gave me copies of Mini Wheels a couple of years ago. Not sure where they came from. I scanned them and sent them to you.

 

Peter,

If you are ok with me sharing, I will forward the remaining Mini Wheels to Steve to share on his site.

 

Cheers

No Fuss from me Pete I was just a bit mystified how Neil got the scan I hadn't made the connection with you and Neal. I'm looking forward to seeing what else is coming through. I got into commercial track Racing in mid 77 so only have the last 4 of the Mini wheels before it disappeared

I'm in contact with Jason Jones on FB I'll message him and ask if he still has anything. I just found Bob Sherry and Dennis Traegar there as well I can ask them too if you like. Bob comes into T-bird now and again Pete.

 

Cheers

The fuss is just me being a bit anal about giving credits where due.

Thanks guys for sharing, hope we can build up this interesting stuff.

All good, my scanner is better than thought and the document feed seems to work well. I sent of Mini Wheels No 13 ( Mar 77) to Slotbaker and he can convert to the correct format. I'll get the rest away over the next few weeks.

 

Big thanks to Steve ( Slotbaker) for putting this together and collating all the information.. It will be a big job so I hope you've got plenty of spare time :wacko:

It would be good to find other racers that can help with the missing issues, So we dont double up the Mini Wheels I'm about to scan and the couple already on the site it looks like we have issue's 2,4,5,8,9,11,12,13,15,16 already covered..

Can anyone fill in some of the gaps?..
