Welcome to The Old Weird Herald's "Scale Stuff". This section is devoted to the "scale enthusiast" aspect of slot cars. This includes 1/32 scale home and club tracks, vintage slot cars, restoration and scale modeling of slot cars, collectable slot cars, slot car nostalgia, Scalextric and similar 1/32 scale cars, etc.

Home tracks and slot car collections have long been hiding out in basements all over the world. Now, thanks to the internet, us basement dwelling slot car types can share our interests in the "scale enthusiast" aspect of slot car racing, building, and collecting!
