Upon reading these posts, I cant help but become sentimental about the amount of time I spent at Tiny Tim's and it was a lot of time. As a kid, I loved the slot cars but Tiny Tim's also had the best selection of model cars around. Man do I miss that place, they just dont make them like that anymore.
I distinctly remember finally being able to be big enough to race on the big track. Once that goal was reached I distinctly remember deliberately trying to race my car so fast that it would launch itself off the track into turn 1.

I used to go to Tiny Tim's on my lunch hour with friends from work and race HO slotcars with them. Then a friend talked me into getting into the larger cars and we used to go there on race night and take all the blue ribbons.(It was one of the few things I was actually good at.) They finally asked us to stop entering so someone else could win for a change... that was a really great place to spend some time and make some friends.
I also joined the model rocket club that was sponsored out of Tiny Tim's (the "Wolverine Rocketeers of Detroit") and made some lifelong friends there too.
Miss those days...
