Well before the eras of video games, young boys throughout the world shared another obsession, the slot car. It's an electric toy-racing car that ran on a grooved track. Slot-car racing was a part of the British culture, but it wasn't until it hit the United States in 1965 that its popularity really took off. Many fans built their own cars, and constructed their own tracks. By 1967 the slot car had been sidelined, in this high tech world, that flashier and more powerful toys would rule the world.
