Thanks “BMW” for the photos. Miss Fritter joins the variant parade. The (swing out) Stop Sign has been updated and matches better to the one in the movie.   From the movie. Original one had the “saw” Stop Sign embedded into the octagon shape of a stop sign. Tweet This Post

Majorette has some nice sculpts for $3.49 (cheap for diecasts nowadays with opening doors). But the regular wheel rims are a little weak. The black rims ones are nice for $3.49. No singles at Amazon but some of the box sets are available. Tweet This Post

Looks like CASE N was a Target-only case though it says nothing on the outside to indicate such as a designation. A nice case with the Dirt Track Fab Hudson Hornet, the now “non-Chase” Cruz as Frances Beltline plus a couple more Rust-eze Racing Center Lightning (Target exclusive). All the releases sport the larger V2 […]
