Slot Mods USA is the latest in analog racing. It's about bringing people together to race and have fun. Our goal is to deliver works of art and create a memorable racing experience for every single racer that runs our tracks.
Starting at $75,000 (plus shipping and installation), the 12- by 20-to-30-foot tracks take cues from many of the world's legendary racetracks including Le Mans, Monaco, Mid-Ohio, Laguna Seca, Riverside, Road America and Watkins Glen, complete with elevation changes, banked corners, real aluminum Armco guardrails, signage, bridges, iconic buildings, foliage, and other unique elements. Period-correct slot cars, pit crews and grandstands, along with integrated in-track cameras that display the action on mini-screens, immerse slot-car enthusiasts into the on-track action.
The Slot Mods USA item in the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book, titled the "Slot Mods USA Ultimate Slot Car Raceway" and priced at $300,000, includes a re-creation of the buyer's fantasy track along with an inaugural race night party co-hosted by racing legends such as Vic Elford and David Hobbs. Neiman Marcus is donating $3,500 to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation, which supports youth arts education, for every Slot Mods USA Ultimate Slot Car Raceway purchased.

Funny thing I also recall from the late 80s is that Neiman-Marcus was also selling a radio-controlled blimp at one point. It was largely mylar, and I remember marveling at it in one of their stores. Fast-forward to 2014 and you can get something similar for under $50.
