No, but the guy in the lime green outfit was voiced by Casey Kasem, who also did Shaggy in Scooby Doo.



So was the character of Tank. Mike Wheeler sounds like Tim Matheson, but IMDb lists someone named Michael Rye. Real kicker: Albert Brooks was Kip!

Please post a build thread when you do - I like seeing those sow's-ear-specials made into something resembling a real car!

I plan on posting a thread on my project "Pre-Monogram Lil Coffin", here's a link to an example of what I have done previously with a sows ear: http://www.modelcars...85335&p=1159792

Very interesting stuff that I never knew! My favorite versions are the one kitted by Monogram and the early version with the Deuce radiator shell which looks pretty much like what Aurora kitted. Some of the other versions can cause severe eyestrain. :blink:
