      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Lennie Pond question

NASCAR guys, i'm wondering about a nascar model kit anomally. MPC did the Lennie Pond PEPSI Chevelle Laguna S3. It was one of the last, if not THE last kit in thier 1970's nascar series. Here's the question. Why does the kit have #39 on the decals when all the reference pictures I can find of the car have #54? Furthermore, the PEPSI lettering in the kit is in PEPSI blue, while the car itself had white lettering?

Was this a licensing issue?

Was this kit released as part of the Cannonball Run series? If so, maybe it was #39 in the movie. If not, I don't have a clue (of course I've often called clueless.)

It was eventually released as the Cannonball Run Hawaiian car but was #1. The issue Ihave is molded in blue and comes in a Pepsi box.

If I remember right those are generic decals. I don't remember Lennie Pond ever driving a # 39.

Is it possible that he changed teams, went to a different owner but took the Sponsor with him after they planned the kits release ...they are assigned the numbers by Nascar by each team and owner.
