Ok here is another question on Hot wheels kits. Besides Monogram what other company made kits for hot wheels that were also 1/32 scale?

MPC showed a 1/25 scale truck in its 1982 catalog which had a name that was a very poor choice. It was never released with the name shown on the van (most likely because of the name), but what was the vehicle and what was the ill-chosen name shown in the catalog?

Mpc made a tow truck kit sometime in 80's then a few years later they re-issued this same kit as a 4x4. Even the decals were the same. Can you name the kit and the make of the truck? Hint: it was a foreign truck.

Is it The Scavenger Datsun? First a mini tow truck then a monster truck?

Here's an easy one: which currently active model brand has not had a tow truck kit?

Ha, Rob, I hadn't thought of them. That is correct, but I was thinking of another brand...no matter. You can go next, but bonus points to who can guess what brand I was thinking of... :)

Ok..this should be easy...a famous early '60s custom was originally offered as part of a 2n1 or Nn1 kit....around 40 years later, an all new single-version kit of this custom was tooled up and released under it's original brand.  It was fairly well-received, but had issues.
