Hello Everyone,

I have just received some HO cars and track for Payment.

I need help with identifying the following cars.




This is a cool looking GTO Judge with weird Gearing.




Thanks for any help

The two on the right are Tyco HP-7 chassis, I'm pretty sure.

Edit: whoops, ncdslots beat me to the punch. And the two that maddawg identified as 'Vettes are not actually 'Vettes, I think they are Nissan something or others, and to be specific about the chassis, they are 440-X2. The fast traxx is also a 440-X2.

Correct on the two Nissans, 300ZX's I believe they are. I have a red/black street version myself.

Lightbulb New Idea

I been sitting here looking at that fast traxx and have come up with an idea to keep me busy in my spare time

this could be fun to run around a track cleaning up messes.

A little filler on the Nissans . They are 280 ZX bodies . Ironically , they are painted up as IMSA GTU spec 260Z's . Bob Sharp Racing ran their cars in the distinctive R/W/B paint sceme for almost the whole period they raced . Eventually they did run 280zx's in that scheme with Newman driving .
The 2 TYCO cars though represent the '74 cars . Sharp had the race car and was commissioned to build a replica car to be used as a pace car . It was not a full-on race car and was painted in the sponsor's colors , hence the Camel livery .
Later in it's life the pace car was acquired by a well known Vintage racer and Sharp fan Dr. Alan Robbins . He upgraded the car to full race equipment and repainted to the red/white/blue Sharp livery . Robbins raced it extensively as a replica of the original .
Recently the car has been acquired by comedian Adam Corolla , another big Datsun guy , and has been put back to the original Camel Livery .

As an ironic note to both the Datsun racers and to people (including us) painting race cars. There is a sort of lesson in a couple of the Z racers . Although most of the Datsuns and later Nissans were some variation of red , white , and blue because that is what Datsun/Nissan wanted and was paying for 2 of the best looking were colors you wouldn'e expect and probably sound not so hot . If I told you I was going to paint 2 cars ,one beige and brown , and one pale Yellow and Creamsicle Orange , you might not be too excited to see them . And yet , they both turned out to be stunning looking cars . The lesson there is don't be afraid to try something different or distinctive it just might work !

Thanks ,
Durf

P.S. If one of you more enterprising guys who have learned to post pictures here feels like doing me a favor Google a photo of "Camel GT Datsun Z" and "Brad Friselle Datsun Z" and post them here.
