NJ NOSTALGIA HOBBY LIMITED EDITION JAMES DEAN COMMEMORATIVE PORSCHE 356

James Dean was an American actor.  He is remembered as a cultural icon of teenage disillusionment and social estrangement, as expressed in the title of his most celebrated film, Rebel Without a Cause, in which he starred as troubled teenager Jim Stark.  He was also a ‘car guy’.  He was killed when his Porsche 550 Spyder, which he had named the ‘Little Bastard’ was T-boned by a much larger Ford Tudor sedan in an intersection. 
 
Around 2009 a group built a commemorative Porsche 356 as a tribute to Dean.  This HO slot car from Bauer Modelautobahnnen is that tribute car.  Produced in exacting detail as all Bauer cars are this car even has a James Dean figure behind the wheel.  This is NJH-003 the third special edition car from Bauer made especially for NJ Nostalgia Hobby.  Production was limited to 50 cars for NJ Nostalgia Hobby and I suspect they will sell out fast. 
 
Initial offering from NJ Nostalgia Hobby only will be $116.99 + shipping. Don’t delay get yours soon!  908-322-2676  WEDNESDAY – SATURDAY NOON TILL 6

WHATS NEW IN ONE THIRTY TWO 101422

For years Carrera was the ‘go to’ slot car company for 1/32 Formula One slot cars.  Then two years ago, they stopped making F1 slot cars.  Scalextric has just moved in to fill that void.  Three releases from Scalextric, all classics and in my opinion great choices.  First is the Lotus 99T in the Camel livery driven by Ayrton Senna and Satoru Nakajima beginning in 1987 with much success.  Next is one of my favorites, the First National City Bank 6 wheel Tyrrell P34 as raced in 1977.  Last is the iconic John Player Special Renault Elf in black and gold again driven by Ayrton Senna in the Portuguese Grand Prix in 1985.  All are in stock and are $69.99 each. 

MIKE PISANO CLASSIC 2022

Hi All,  The following is a message from Mario ‘the Chief’ Pisano:

Thanks to all my friends and family for all the previous celebrations which were held at N.J. hobby in Scotch Plains and after missing the 2020 race because of Covid. I was honored that Henry Harnish held last year’s race at his Randolph Raceway Complex in Randolph NJ. Henry has generously offered to hold it there again this year.

WHAT’S NEW IN HO 032422

Just arriving this Spring from Bauer of Germany NJH-02 was this VERY limited edition HO slot car.  This is the second special edition car from Bauer exclusively for NJ Nostalgia Hobby.  If you were lucky enough to get NJH-01 the two tone (red and white vintage VW beetle) you know the level of detail will be fantastic.  NJH-02 is a Porsche 911 Targa with open top and for the first time I can recollect in an HO slot car a female driver.  This will be a blonde woman with wind blown long blond hair (see pics). I am allowing the purchase of only ONE car per person . This is to assure everyone who wants one gets a chance to own one.  Direct purchase price $134.99 + shipping.  Please call 908-322-2676 Wednesday through Saturday noon till 6 PM only to get yours.  Only 50 were made for me and only a couple of handfuls remain.

STORE HOURS UPDATE 012222

It had been my plan to open the store to the public one day a week beginning either Saturday July 31 or Saturday August 7, 2021 having been closed to the public since March of 2020. Unfortunately that is when the Delta variant drove the number of CoVid cases up again.  I then planned to open Mid December 2021 and Omicron hit.   At this time I have no plan to open to the public.    Thank you for your patience and your patronage.  

I will still be filling mail, phone and internet orders and allowing pre arranged front door pickups.  If you would like photos sent to you by email of items you may be interested in please contact me at njhobby@aol.com or call 908-322-2676 Wednesdays through Saturdays between the hours of 11:30 and 6 PM.  Regards and stay well.  Joe
