wow, great... beats my RC slot cars.
Compared to the hot wheels set I had as a kid, this thing is impressive. Wonder what it cost to build?
You can spend that on a few bottles of collectible wine so .....
That looks like the seller is "The Bond Group", a used classic car dealer in Waltham, Mass. I seem to remember hearing about a track like that when I was part of the New England 356 club, but I never really saw it. Trust me - There is a LOT of disposable income in Metro-West Boston, where Waltham is, and dropping that much for a novelty in your car collection wouldn't surprise me around here.
We're getting into "Cah Show Season" where people show up with their rare exotic cars at specific Cars and Coffee events to be seen (they usually don't care to see other people's cars). They sometimes know the pedigree of their car (and what makes it expensive) but can't really talk much about what's in it. After all, it's just an investment for them. Like the guy who showed up for a "Porsche Day" event in a made-in-Holland Spyker. Nice car, but he was turned away.
It is a most impressive slot car track, but not $205K impressive. Not even if the track was 4X bigger. But then, that would make it a really big 917!
Actually some budgets are way out there…. But. It needs a Quickjackusa to lift it up so you can play with the slot cars .
