    The original kit had green tinted windows and did NOT include a sleeper.....
    There was a mail in offer to allow the builder to buy the sleeper separately....
    The second release did have clear windows and did include the sleeper....
    IIRC both releases 1 and 2 were issued as T-500....

    I had it on 150 on Dish....
    Later there was a basketball game on....
    They flashed at the bottom of the screen that the race had resumed, and I could not find it on Dish...
    I had to switch over to Expressvu and caught it on there....

    It was a good race right to the finish....
    Ticked off with the coverage though....
    After the rain delay, I had a heck of a time finding which channel it was on....

    This story has been told numerous times over the years...
    The remaining molds were ravaged by irate employees because they were not being paid...
    The inserts for most of the tooling was sold for scrap by them...
    The sad fact is there is just not enough left of what once was the famous Johan Model Company to even consider these days...
    It's over !!!...
