World of Racing book - 1973 Amway

World of Racing, sights and sounds of international motor racing book. Printed in 1973 and distributed by Amway. Still has the original 45 record of race sounds narrated by Graham Hill (never played!), original water slide decal sheet and the original tri-fold poster of a race scene similar to the cover picture. Neat old book full of race car details and images as well as track layouts.

Vintage Panasonic Stereo Speaker System

Found this set of speakers at a thrift store today. They are Panasonic model RP-8048 portable speakers. They clip together but can be folded open and separated. The speaker wires fit neatly into little spaces on the back side of each. After looking online I think they were originally designed for attaching to turntables.

Vintage Hide-Out Rewind #3

SOME FINDS FROM YEARS PAST. I'll try to post up old finds from time to time to keep things interesting.
The infamous JoaoBambu "bamboo" leg cast that I painted. It was autographed by many well known people in the bamboo world and last I heard it is on display in the bamboo museum in Brazil. Vintage, one-of-a-kind oil painting of Burt Reynolds from the Bandit time period that I found at a local flea market. Never used vintage "Hot Nuts" machine I found at a garage sale. The first Schwinn Sting-Ray I bought on eBay in about 98-99. Not a very original bike, late 70's or so...... I kept it a few years then sold it off (1965 VW Bus in background that I fixed up with my brother).
