Doug Azary has collected several slot cars
scratchbuilt by Jack Fine,a California slot racer from the late 60s.
"This is a 1/32 scale Cooper Ford built by Jack Fine, circa 1969, which I've slightly
modified (2001), as I'll explain below. The body is by Lancer."
"The frame is a 4 rail brass rod job with (maybe) a Cobra motor bracket.
I love the body mounts. They're somewhat free to float, due to the screw and nut hinge.
Four 0-80 brass screws secure the body to the mounts.
"A pair of small threaded Riggens keep the car up in front
and a cut down set of Pro-Track drag tires give it all the traction
it needs. It still has the Cox guide flag with their 'Super-Flex'
lead wires attached."
"The motor is an obvious late model Parma Deathstar, but I rewound it with 90 turns of #32,
epoxied and balanced it. Even though it's a milder wind than it comes in stock form,
it's still a bit much for the car. I added the lead weight under the motor and this
helped with the handling."
