Yeah, I said it. It's the world's coolest puzzle. I found it in a thrift store last year. I have built it and it was totally complete. It's soooo cool! Check it:

It's all race tracks in the US (and some Canada and Mexico) circa 1994 (though the puzzle was first designed in 87). There's also cars and power boats all over it. It was a lot of fun to build and look at the tracks, but alas I need space for Javelin Jr, so I am cleaning out stuff.

I paid $2 for it and I want it to go to a good home. Best trade offered here gets it! (Extra bonus points if it somehow ends up framed at the GRM World HQ).

LOL! Not mine on eBay, and I didn't even think to see if it was worth actual money. I'm just happy to see it go to a GRM'er

I can trade yellow Caterham Matchbox cars for it, and perhaps a 510 hotwheels. Just one of those though.... I still need to find more.

Something cool that takes up less space (or can be eaten). Failing that, something I can haphazardly weld to the Javelin

I thought the e-Type Jaguar was the world's coolest puzzle.

Man, I'd really like to have that. I have a lot of stuff, but I have no idea what to trade. I do have an unopened NASCAR monopoly game from the early 90's...

Funny! The next item I was going to give away was a NASCAR Monopoly! (For cereal!)

Got any cool posters or pictures I can hang up in the garage? Do you make a mean chocolate chip cookie?

No way! Really? NASCAR monopoly? Mine was a gift. Theres a reason it was never opened... Well, the cool posters are hung in my shop. I have some less than cool posters you might want to consider. Of course what's cool to one person... Cookies - Hell yes my chocolate chip cookies are mean!!! So mean you won't want to eat them. Check back. I'll try to figure something out.

I could mail you a cookie, but I doubt it would make the transit nicely. I do want, but have nothing really cool to trade. My oldest is starting to learn puzzles.

In reply to tuna55:

We have sent cookies & brownies to our son in Iraq. We used a vacuum sealer. I dont like puzzles or I would offer Killer Brownies (w/carmel).

Well I hate to give it away out from under bravenrace, but if he doesn't come up with some cookies soon I'll have to defer to you Tuna.

I'm just so hungry!

I think it'd be cool to have, and I can follow instructions, which means I can make good cookies. However, I think it'd be even cooler for Tuna's kid to have it. So, if need be, I'll make you some cookies and you send the puzzle to Tuna. LMK.

If bravenrace doesn't comment by Friday night, we 3 have a deal. You send cookies, and I'll supply Tuna's kid with an awesome history lesson on racetracks in puzzle form.
