Was at Target today and saw the 1/24 scale dragsters from 1320. They were priced at $19.99. Lots of nice parts to do some kit bashing to

make other dragsters and gassers.

That's an incredible price. What ones did they have ? are they going to stock the entire line ? Can you get the SKU # I'll see if I can get my local target to order some.

I stopped by a Target here in Daytona Beach today after seeing this post. They had two front engine dragsters. One Garlits Wynnscharger, red and black car and the other was the Wheeler Dealer car. Very nice and as stated above they have some nice parts that could be used on other builds. A very nice price too.

I checked out three Targets, and all had the same two. I picked up the Garlits to check them out. After opening, I too think they will be great for parts if nothing else. Gonna build the Garlits and I think I will pick up the Wheeler Dealer for the future. Glad I saw this post, I would never have seen them.

It's a nice change to just only to have to put the wheels on, etc.

Thanks for the heads up on these. Glad they did this. I wonder how many more they are going to do however. My Target also had the Garlits and Wheelers car. Of course I bought them and it was the only two in stock. One thing I noticed is that they both say no. 51240 and 1 of 5000 but the skew # ending is 115 and 116.

I couldnt' even find anything on either website. Must be a new deal.

Well, looks like we may have gotten more a "kit' than we all bargained for. Mine, and at least one other person's, came with an engine that has the idler pulley as the distributor, with the wires running from it, and the belt just pushed up against the side of it against the wires.

Not a big deal, I don't mind working on it, probably do a bit more detail painting and chenge the oil and fuel lines to a more convincing scale while I'm at it.

Love to hear if others were OK, or if they are all like this.

I picked up a couple of the 1320 dragsters at a New Jersey Target store on Saturday.

I will most likely cannibalize them. They are not as nice as the built-ups from 1320.

The Garlits decals were horrible compared to the original, the magneto, wiring, and breathers are really goofy as well.

However..... they are definitely worth $19.99 just for the wheels, tires and other parts.

Nope. The wires were coming out of the pulley to the left, not a mag or distributor.

Welcome to the forum.

I tried the link for your web site and all it gives is a pic. of the dragster. Nice slot car but I would love information on how to get one.

Also, you might want to think about putting your full name in your profile to show up on the bottom of each post. It is a forum rule.

I was wondering if the engines in these kits are pre-built. I collect these cars from 1320 and this would be a great way to save some money on them. Thanks Christian
