Default Sano Dave Fiedler Benefit Auction

HO RACERS and collectors!

This is a auction to benefit "Sano" Dave Fiedler. He was one of the great 1/24 track owners/slot racers, always giving to and helping others... now is our time to give back. Dave is very sick and has cancer so the $$ will go into a fund for Dave's expenses.

All you have to do is post here what you would like to pay for this John Cukras signed AFX Collector Series HO car. Even if you do not have or race HO's, this is signed by '60s 1/24 slot racing legend John Cukras! In later years he has become an HO legend as well. It is signed by John on the back.

This is Tomy/Racemasters Historic Mighty Ford GT40 MkII car driven by Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon at LeMans. A great collector item for your shelf! These cars John gives to racers out here at Buena Park Raceway and other events.

This auction will run through next Sunday midnight (West coast time). When the winner is announced (it is on another Slot Car Blog as well) I will PM the winner with how to donate to the Sano Dave fund and I will ship it to the winner.

Once I have been informed it has been paid for I will send it out and it will soon be delivered to you by an agent of the United States Government! (for US bidders at least.... for any for'in bids your agents will have to deliver it to you)

Niels Elmholt Christensen of Denmark has bid $100.00 so far for this car!

There is another
Cukras-autographed AFX Super G-Plus car @ $40.00 HO car on auction if you want it PM me.

Default Dave is my friend and one heck of a great guy.

I donate $100.00 I don't want the car.

Plus my Anniversary Sale at www.132slotcar.us you decide take off 27% or pay full price and I will give 30% of the sale to help a fellow Slot Car Racer. If anyone wants to do that I will run the Sale till the end of August please email your order number and that you wish to help Dave.

If you don't know Dave know this he is a gentleman and one heck of a Slot Car Racer.

Thank you guys! Dave has expressed his thanks to all that donate. My wife and I gave $$$ and I put up this HO car just to get more for him out of my own collection.

There are several other auctions for "Sano" Dave with a custom built 1/24 motor as well as another HO car.

If you just want to donate PM or post here and I will PM/ direct you where the donate button is on another Blog. You have a choice of color of a wrist band with a saying Dave has on his Slot Box......

"Screw Cancer, I'm Racing"

Again thanks!

Default Thanks to Barn for posting about Sano Dave here!

And thanks to all the SCI members who want to donate to the Sano Dave Fiedler fundraiser.

May I also point out that there are several other neat items being auctioned to benefit Dave at Slotblog (in Racer Swap Shop), with one incredible auction that should be going up later today.

If you wish to donate to benefit Dave but aren't a PayPal user, please PM me (or email me at greg@slotblog.net) for the address where donations can be mailed.

Thanks again for your generosity for one of the nicest guys in slot racing!

Default You can send a donatoin to help Dave here.

sanodudedave@yahoo.com

Above is the Paypal ID for Dave.

I am sure any donations no matter the size will help Dave during this difficult time.

If you do not use Paypal, contact me and I can supply mailing info to send donations directly to Dave.

I hope we can get the SCI family to help out, Dave is a great guy, and while he does not post here he has supported my efforts to get Scaleracing going in the Chicago area.
