Thanks for the update Lee, I will have to check mine to see what they have. Did you buy all three that you mentioned or just the Olds?

Looked again this past Thursday at Walmart. No kits. Heck.... they haven’t been restocking any grocery items in the last month. Why do I even bother wasting my time doing my grocery shopping at Walmart this past month when they have minimum staff working to restock essential groceries? Next week, I’m heading out to another Walmart or Hannafords. LOLOL !!

So far I have only found them at one store out of three. So don't give up, someone has them out there.

Well.... there's always a New Hartford store. I highly doubt they will have any in stock. Same for Herkimer or Rome stores.

Nothing at the Gloversville or Amsterdam stores.

While grocery shopping, I decided to head over to the Toys department. Didn’t take me long to spot a cardboard display with the word “MODELS” on it. Looked they were picked over but... I grabbed the last Grumpy’s Vega kit. Not bad for $19.97. Some kits are priced at $24.97 though. They had some 6 pack cheapo generic “hobby paint set” with brush for $7.

For those in N.Y., now is the time to check your local Walmart stores.

$24.97 isn't all that bad.

Yeah... I think it's priced for the semi kit. Still a good price though for Walmart. 

I was tempted on the Nova Wagon kit though. I was surprised with the small box size.

Stopped by the Walmart by my house and grabbed the last ‘68 Ford Torino Cobra Fastback kit with the missus’s blessing. LOL! This one can be built in 3 ways.... stock, custom, and racing. Came with 4 Polyglass white lettered tires and 4 what appears to be NASCAR style Goodyear tires.
