    Andy.
    Superb site. Brought all those memories back. Great to have all this info in one place. Have a couple of old sets in my loft, both Lanechanger and Powertrack. Also have a quite scarce A4 Powertrack brochure in excellent condition. Could send some scans if you would like to add to your site.

    Hi
    Just found a Race N Chase set in my Mums loft, pretty complete missing the Corvette and the Police car is a bit bashed up.
    Looking forward to trying to restore it all. Your Car servicing video is a great source of info.
    Love the site !

    Great Site Andy, I created the Wikipedia page with the help of XYSdad. I am interested in obtaining the Taxi shell and wonder if you could expand on how to do this on your site. I have added your
    site to links section to the Wikipedia site as well

    Hi Andy, Thanks for supplying the spare parts for me to renovate the Monza 2000 Powertrack that I originally brought for my sons long ago. So their their sons can enjoy it as well. A special thanks
    also for sorting out the part of the order that went missing with paypal, and supplying the parts and fitting instructions so quickly.

  • Graham Morgan (Wednesday, January 14 15 01:42 pm GMT)

    Love the Site. Will buy some cars in near future. Have been looking for someone local to buy spare parts from too. I know you also serviced my cars but could you please include servicing section on
    the site for maintenance.

    I\'ve just purchased 3 sets of tyres and a race and chase controller to get my old set running. My 5 & 3 year old children spent all evening with all the lights in the house off racing. They
    don\'t make them like this anymore!

    Love the website!! as a kid in 1978 I was given an international 1000 speedtrack for xmas. Corvette vs Porsche and 33ft of track to determine a winner. I still have it and thanks to ebay I get it up
    and running every 5 to 10 years or so. I'm currently looking to build a permanent track setup (20'x12') on a pulley system in my garage as it has grown in size over the years.
