Lionel Ford Dealership for 2004 is a neat scale replica. They are selling as low as $159.00 on the internet. Hope I do this right and they can be seen at http://www.Lionel.com/Products/Catalogs/Catalog.cfm?CatalogID=3&PageID=192

I believe it is "O" scale. For those that don't know, that is twice the size of "HO".

Actaully, HO is half the size of O scale. That is where the term HO came from - Half O scale.

O scale is 1/43 and HO is 1/87. Hot Wheels, etc are 1/64.

Are you sure,DT? I dug out my HO slotcar set this weekend to fool with,and the cars sure look 1/64 to me. I put them next to other 1/64 cars,and the proportions are about the same.

He is correct. Kinda. True HO is 1/87. If you are running newer slots like the Tyco, Artin, etc., they are closer to 1/64 (HotWheels size) than a true 1/87 HO scale.

The older Aurora/Model Motoring Thunderjets slots and the new Johnny Lightning reissues are a true HO scale.

My aurora set is circa 1977. Would it be earlier than that?
