Raiders Coach

Probably one of the weirder cars I've built, from the 2000 repop of the kit. I went box stock for the most part, only replacing the intake horns with some crimp tubes. The original plan was to use the decals, but they fit terribly so I decided to do without. A full writeup of the kit is available here, and as always any comments/criticisms are welcome!

The three kits that were released in the series: The Monkeemobile, Raiders Coach, and Fireball 500:

I can't tell, which one is it?

Madden, Gruden or Jackson?

Reminds me of an old joke:

"I knew a girl who was so dumb, she thought a football coach had 4 wheels!"

You joke, but trying to get search engines to figure out I was looking for show rod reference photos and not football coaches was more of a task than actually building the kit!ย ๐Ÿ˜†

I wish they would've included the figures in the reissues. It wouldn't have been copyright infringement, the figures NEVER look like the actual people anyway.ย 

They wouldn't have to label them as the band members, just call them "passengers".

Was the real thing actually driveable/driven at all?

From what I've heard, barely. No way it could have really tapped into the power of two V8s without tearing itself apart, and my understanding was that it was so weird and ungainly that it wasn't used for much more than photo shoots.
