Sadly, Richard Kipp, (a.k.a. 'Kipp' of Kipp's Slotcar Hobby Shop in Lebanon) passed
away in 2004. He was believed to be in his early 70's. We will all miss him.
God, I really miss him.
Kipp ran a fantastic slot car shop in his basement from the 1960's until he died
in 2004. He was a cantankerous old coot anyone who ever met him can never forget.
He was full of antics. For example, he had his "I gotta run" trap. If you said
you "gotta run," he pointed to a sign by the door that said "No Running." :-)
I leave this page up to help others remember him.

A painted and decaled car (Kipp offers decals, too).
Another view of the painted car. This picture doesn't do it justice.
Kipp creates another car.
Kipp lays out a few cars for pick-up. I'm told these cars are going to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Most of Kipp's stock was purchased by Guindonapolis Speedway in Lebanon, PA.
I don't think they are still there. I don't know what happened to them.
