And what happen to the MPC Stiletto show car? I remember buying vending machine trading cards of different custom cars in the late 1960's, early 70's. And I had the card with that car on it. And it did mention something on about MPC models owning or offering it as a kit. If that one ever hit the selves, I'm sure I would have gone for it. I still might today.

 

Kinda looks like Roth's Wishbone, but uglier.  :wacko:

That's the card Casey! I know the car is kind of ugly. But.... And I'm ashamed to say this. I kind of like it and know I would have built one in the day. Today I'd buy and build one for nostalgia sake if nothing else.

If you take the teardrop things off the sides, it's actually a decent bubblecar.

I did this several years ago for Polar Lights, the kit was never made, sorry this is a bad copy of it.

I was reading another "brand" model magazine from 2001. In there, they mentioned Polar Lights canceling their announced plans to offer a model of the 1954 Corvette "Waldorf" Nomad. As I mentioned in another posting on early Corvette models, that and the '54 Corvette Corvair fastback coupe, are two kits I would love to see. What a shame to know we came so close to the Nomad at least. I wonder why it got canceled? And is there any chance we could get Round 2 to revive the idea?
