In the late 1960's and early 70's, Aurora's Cigarbox and SpeedLine cars were one of the few good competing brands to Mattel Hot Wheels cars along with Topper Johnny Lightning vehicles, Matchbox, and others.
Bodies on these gravity-based push cars were based on their Aurora Thunderjet slot cars, which had better detail than other brands of Hot Wheel type cars.
I have several sets. The SpeedLine track is 2-lane!
The Stunt and Drag 2-in-1 sets included track, and NOS roller bump, loop section, start clamp, start launcher, and 2 cars!
Some sets had the bonus finish gate with checkered flag (which I also have as an optional accessory!).
LOTS of extra cars available!
I have many neat accessories available that include: roller bump, crossover track, finish gate, launcher start, barrel jump, etc. for additional 15 each (or 25 for double-packs) or multiple discounts when you add them to a set.
...SAVE with $90 for one of everything!
Price at only: $ 40 and up
