Yeah, I know. It seems like normal life span for most resin aftermarket is 3 to 5 years. Was hoping maybe somebody knew if the masters migrated somewhere else.

Interested in 25-24th. Having enough trouble seeing those anymore. What I'd really like to see would be a couple of the open cars from the first 2 years of the series, but figure that long ago no chance now.

I have been a big fan of these Daytona Prototypes.... They are just a neat looking racecar. I got to see them run at the Long Beach GrandPrix back in 2006. So awesome.

Just my opinion maybe, but they're a lot better looking now than they were back in 2006.

I like the small top cars, but still prefer the original open cars. Which is weird since in street cars I don't really like convertibles that much.
