    Try ebay also. They have some brands like Eldon the original big slot cars for reasonable price track and cars. They are easy for kids to put back together if anything falls apart.

    Quote:Honestly, if you can find them at Christmas time for < $50.00 you should buy a bunch of them.

    I asked my brother if he wanted to part with anything he has. He is a "collector" I guess you could say. Anyway, he was telling me that he found a slot car from the '60s, in mint condition for "only $200.00" [​IMG]

    His collection is a little out of your price range. It was worth a shot though [​IMG]

    Have you tried a hobby store? I know the big chain store Hobby Lobby has slot car sets with the trains and models. Usually, if they sell model train sets, they will have slot car sets.

    If you are correct about finding them during the holidays for around $20.00 I would assume that there is an online store that would have them for a similar price all year long.

    I dug around a little online today and the cheapest set I found was $49.95. Like I said, these things aren't cheap. If you ever find a set, in a box for $20.00 like you stated I will send you my pay pal info and we can both make a few bucks.

    I hope you find a set. I remember my first slot car set, loads of fun. I spent my whole Christmas vacation playing with it. It was an AFX Smokey and the Bandit set...... probably worth a fortune [​IMG] I think I broke it like many, many kids do [​IMG][​IMG]

    I have a bunch of them from the 70's.Haven't touched them in years so I don't know if they still work or not.I think I also have some track someplace.I wouldn't have any idea as to how much they are worth.If I get a few minutes tomorrow,I will take a pic of what I have and see if it is anything he is looking for.

    Quote:I dont know where you looked but i know that around christmas which is the only time stores carry them around here you can get them at walmarts and kmarts from anywhere between 20 to 30 depending on how big of a set it is here is one i found on kmarts.com for 50.00 and it is a really big set and it is only 50.00 and everything on line is moe expensive then it is in our local store i guess that is why they only carry them around christmas but anyways here is the link http://www.kmart.com/shc/s/p_10151_10104_004W148947110001P?vName=Toys+&+Games&keyword=slot+car
