Probably had 30-40 cars and enough track to make a layout that covered half a basement. I remember having a book that showed track layouts based on famous road race courses (LeMans, Laguna Seca, Watkins Glen, etc.). The most unique slot cars I had were AFX snowmobiles with riders. The set came with white tracks, with "esses" that were a frosted blue plastic to look like ice... In addition to the HO scale electric cars, we also had a small track of the larger slot cars. I remember, instead of solid copper brushes for electrical connection to the track, the older, large slot cars had what amounted to "copper-wool" attached to the shoes. My brother bought a GP body styled large slot car and we used to drive to Evanston, a half hour's drive, to race it on a huge track at a game room. In addition to the full size GI Joe, I had J.J. Arms. You could substitute a fake arm for a variety of weapons and tools. It's easiest to find me on Facebook.
