If you want to know about Aurora slots cars, the history of the company, or just rekindle your memories of racing the little suckers as a kid, this book is superb. From the development of the Vibrator cars to the refinement of the T-Jets and later products, this book colorfully charts the development and rise of the company, including its later missteps and struggles. Very informative and a good read.

I am interested in Thunderjet slot cars, and already owned the Greenberg' Guide.Because this 2003 book had a great throwback cover and several more pages, I purchased it.Turn out this book is but an expanded retread version of the (Greenberg's Guide to) book from 1995.I was very disappointed to find all the same copy and pictures and that are in the Greenberg's Guide. If you are interested in, vibrator, thunderjets, afx, and already own Greenberg's - pass on this one, as there is nothing new.The price list in the back is also the exact same as Greenberg's, though with uselessly updated values. If you want to know the true current value, go to ebay.

This is one of about 3 books a slot car enthusiast must have. It has the complete history in detail of the rise and fall of Aurora. It goes into detail on the vibrator cars the T-jets and then AFX cars as well as larger scale slot cars. It is a must read for slot car fanatics. It has a price guide for all slot cars and some great color illustrations. I highly recommend this book for anyone just getting into this great hobby.. It was priced right with a very fast delivery and was as described. I highly recommend this seller.....KCK

I use to buy all the Graham's books and I'm always very satisfied. Great pictures,many interesting details about the firm and the models,so I can state that he is the best writer of models book and this book too desereve great interest from ani model collector.Roberto Ruggeri

This book delivers exactly what it promised. It could have a little bit more information since it was similar to a reproduction with updates of a book from the 70s.

I have been waiting to buy this book and finally pulled the trigger (OH NO!) not politically correct. Finally did it, I am a collector great seller, great book.
