Colourful Scalextric Juniors from the 1960s

I have been collecting these little gems on an off for the past 5 years, I tend to add one or two a year. Currently I have eight as you can see from the photograph. These were delightful representations of the classic racing cars of the day and I presume they were called junior since all of them are quite small, in the oder of 6 inches long. All the cars shown here are in working order and represent the variation in bodywork and colour that could be had. There are lots of combinations of these and it is this that is the main attraction for me.

i used to collect and race Scalextric cars in the 70s as a kid, but they kind of got left behind as I got into cycling more. Ive had one of these, the Porsche F1 for years so with the advent of ebay I started to acquire the odd companion for it over the years. There are still plenty of variations to get yet, so this could be the start of something big! Watch out for more soon!

Current cars in the collection are two C73 Porsches, two C66 Coopers, C72 BRM, C81 Cooper, C67 Lotus and a French issue C72 BRM.
