Aurora Vibrator HO slot cars were the first produced under the Aurora name, from 1959-62. They are the direct descendants of the Playcraft Highways cars that were produced in England the previous year. The chassis are AC powered and can run in either track direction simply by positioning the car in the direction you want to go on the track, unlike other HO slotcars. The 'motors' are adapted from a simple door buzzer design, with mechanical motion cleverly produced using a vibrating plate which touches a notched axle gear. While they are much more touchy to keep in good running condition than Tjets, they have a simple charm and realism that captivated the heart of American youth as soon as they were introduced. Vibrator cars came with silver painted bumpers that were molded to the car.
