Nice machine, although not a slot car

I know, I know, it isn't a slot car, but I do like this commercial and yes, I am a Windows phone fan boy.

Slots cars hobby has a future?

Every time I go to a toy store, slot cars are becoming more difficult to find and if found, they are cheap Chinese toys, not hobby items. With a stronger competence from technological devices (drones, gaming consoles, ...) and a declining slot car hobbyist population, is this going to have a crisis like in the 80's or will it completely disappear?

 If I follow my family/friends example (children, nephews, friend's children...) NONE of them is playing slots, so, I could be the last one. How is it going in your family/friends group?
 is it still alive?

Please share your opinions/ideas.

Thank you

Could these new companies/ideas be the future?




I love this car - Scalextric Chevrolet Camaro


Introduced in February 1970, the second-generation Camaro was produced through the 1981 model year, with cosmetic changes made in 1974 and 1978 model years. The car was heavily restyled and became somewhat larger and wider with the new styling. Still based on the F-body platform, the new Camaro was similar to its predecessor, with a unibody structure, front subframe, an A-arm front suspension, and leaf springs to control the solid rear axle. Road & Track picked the 1971 SS350 as one of the 10 best cars in the world in August 1971. RS (shown to the right), SS package was dropped in 1972 and reintroduced in 1996.
The 1980 and 1981 Z28 models included an air induction hood scoop with an intake door that opened under full throttle.


Information from Wikipedia.

The Access RAC Tourist Trophy race at Silverstone, 5th October 1975 was won by the 5.7litre Chevrolet Camaro of Stuart Graham. The instantly recognizable BRUT 33 FabergĂ© sponsored Chevrolet Camaro was driven by Graham to 8 wins in the 1975 British Touring Car Championship. Stuart is also a former Grand Prix motorcycle road racer and son of the 1949 500cc world champion, Leslie Graham
