Classic 1971 Porsche hides a slot car racing track

If you grew up in the 1960s or 70s before every kid had a gaming system at home, you'll know that must have toy for anyone interested in cars was a slot racing circuit. Now that we're adults, having a slot track in the middle of the living room isn't going to cut it, but you could park this Porsche 917 race car that hides a slot track in your garage.

The car is a faithful replica of the Porsche 917 that Vic Elford and Gerald Larrousse used to win the 1971 12 Hours of Sebring, and it even includes period Porsche wheels with race driven tires, and working head and tail lights for added authenticity. The slot track comes fully landscaped with period advertising, trees and Armco crash barriers.

Created by a company called Slot Mods, each circuit is hand built using a wooden track at 1/32 scale to fit most commercially sold slot cars. Pricing was not announced, but let's just assume you could park a real car in that garage spot for less money.
