That's cool, I may have to get one of these. I built one years ago but have no idea what happened to it. I do still have the box and a few pieces from it.

I bought one a few years ago off of e-bay, and lets say it wasnt cheap. Its cool as a whole, but there is a lot to be disired, like the 6 cylinder overhead cam all chrome engine, and all in 1 interior bucket. Mine is missing some parts so in the stash it went.

I just saw this one over at MODEL CAR ROUND UP and wonder if anyone has either information or pictures of this thing built up. I am assuming another kit fits in there . . .

I am drawing a blank trying to remember if I had ever seen this one.

Interesting subject matter.

If you open that chrome, can you please post another pic. It's hard to tell exactly how the wheels look through the bag.

I really hope they wont be a hobby shop only item like most older re-issues. My brother had the original one with the rail dragster...always wanted one.
