Vintage 60's Dragsters on Ebay

I've been watching this auction on Ebay for a week and the serious buyers are starting to show up. Check out this auction for a look at 3 vintage dragsters from the 60's and some cool stuff. How high will it go???

Bad, I'm not one of them bidders, they lost me a .99 cents. Great stuff though.
I'm trying to find out who the original owner was...

Jim, wouldn't it be great to have that stuff.
But you have more exciting stuff with the Anglia. 
I told Tony and he is looking forward to photos.  His friend, Preston, who I told you was building a Popular, actually sold it about a year ago and began building a FED.
All went well at the Kidney Hospital for now, but Im back there on 6 Dec .

Take Care mate

Wow! I wasn't expecting it to go that high, but it goes to show you that there are collectors who appreciate and preserve history.

DVan, please share any information you may find on these dragsters. Perhaps the new owner will also post pictures of his collection.

Mark, take care hope you're doing ok.

Re: Vintage 60's Dragsters on Ebay

Thanks Bill.  Yep Im would love some of those cars, 
using the changing value of US$ over time (CPI calculator)  2010 $2k = 1965 $300 
So well manufactred quality slot cars may actually be a good investment!
Im confident those cars would not have cost $100 each back then? maybe wrong?

Re: Vintage 60's Dragsters on Ebay

Found this information on another slot car forum. Anyone know either of these brothers? or family members.

(These cars were owned by Fred Kramer and maybe his brother Bill Kramer. The car with the cut-out sides was the Top Fuel winner and set low ET of 1.06 at the West Coast Hot Shot drag meet at J&J Raceway in CA. See your copy of April '67 Car Model for more info.)

Re: Vintage 60's Dragsters on Ebay

Bad, yes they were from Long Beach, and they raced at J&J Raceway.
On top of B500 links check the Library Old Articles and you will see old
articles starting in 65 that they raced. They we some of top racers
of the day. They sold the box to some (name unknown for now) which
raced the cars later on and are the ones that sold them on the acution
site.
I'm still working on getting more info...

Re: Vintage 60's Dragsters on Ebay

Bad, sheessshh 400 bucks to open. I wonder is they would trade for one of my sons.. It's missing the racers name, who built them ect... I don't see much value in that.
Am I missing something?
