Chris,

You're probably right. However, I'm under the impression that the American Graffitti car is the Ramchargers car. Either way doesn't matter. What I'm really hoping for is a re-release of the 220"wb FED that MPC issued as the Garlits car that I mentioned. I don't care what it is/was called, just somebody put it out there for us!!! You don't even have to put decals in it, all I want is the plastic. <VBG>

Well I seem to remeber him mentioning the mongoose/snake FE dragster.

The Young american and Garlits cars are way longer than the other kits but I made a chassis by lengthening the double trouble to use with some body bits I had.

Actually the MPC Fiat Altered was based on our highly desired Don Garlits FE frame, not the Ramchargers frame. I too was mis-informed on this and probably even contributed to the misinformation in print at one time or another. I finally secured one of these Fiat kits last year, albeit at a price, though well below what I would have had to pay for a mint Don Garlits MPC FE kit. I've also picked up a few of the "Young American" kits as glue bombs, none of which are usable on their own, but by combining a the few unmolested parts from each kit box I'm close to having a buildable project as a semi-reasonable price....TIM

PS the kit is called "Fiat Rail Rod Slingshot" and it is MPC #1-0715, issued in 1978 and may have been reissued but I sure don't remember such an event.

PPS I would love to see the MPC Don Garlits kit reissued in any form - the Slingshot (which appears to be the final form the tool took), the All American, or the Garlits version. I believe this would be an incredibly popular kit.

TIM BOYD

PPPS The '32 Altered "Jambreaker" which uses the Ramchargers frame has a really cool set of "up and over the tires" headers which I had long forgot about.....TIM
