My first response is to Bill Burmeister, If you have any extra cans of the Clearview 2000, could I get one from you. I bought some back when Scale Auto first ran the add but over the years it seamed to disappear.
I'm glad someone else remembers the greatest April Fools Day joke of the modeling world. I'll never forget all the people calling the local hobby shops trying to find this stuff.
Second, The Petty kit is well worth the money. I'm not a big 1/16th scale fan, but as a Petty and MOPAR fan, it's a must have.
It's a shame MPC never appled this technology to the 1/25th scale kits.
I built these kits as a kid and was impressed at how well they went together. Now as an adult (and hopefully better modeler) I can hardly wait to get started on the reissue. The first of my pre-orders just came and looks fantastic. The big difference I see is the front wheel openings are the same shape as the Buddy Baker K&K Insurance version.
Other that it is missing the screen for the grille, no big deal.
Take my word on it, this is one nice kit. Hope everyone enjoys these kits and we see a lot of finished pictures in this forum.
