I have Q's about Sarge, Sarge in the 7-pack has two lines of writting on the hood and the single has one. I have seen McQueen in the short back and launcher has a front nose piece that is dark red and the others are the same color as the car. I have not seen pic's of the Holley Shiftwell with the rim or tire difference. I would love to see more Posts of info and Pic's about every card back and blister packs, and Series. Please, someone help inform with more articales.

T5 store has magazines that cover all aspects of released cars and varinents from cars1. Good place to start. The sarge your describing is a variant released by two separate manufacturing plants, the two line sarge probably says USA above the vehicle I'd number on the hood . The other sarge was more than likely produced elsewhere and did not receive the USA stamp. And when I say produced I mean " china vs. Thailand " this is my best guess.

Thanks for reply, but I would like to see pics showing the diff., also pics of the holley car with wheels that are diff. I also have 3 diff. Shu 1) the first release in the launcher that has white front spoiler and white eyes. 2) the single that has black front spoiler with gray eye lids. 3) the one in the 10 pack has black front spoiler with white eyes. I have purchased every car on every card back, every ser. with any and every diff. thing I can find. If the tomber with oil can is shown as a diff. car then the Sarge is a diff. car, but no one has said any thing about it. When I first started collecting cars it seemed this web sit had great info with pics and I could go out and find the new stuff. Check lists and new releases, but now it is had to get info with pics. I would love to put pics of what I have on this web sit but I,m not to internet friendly. Someone please put some stuff together. Thanks I feel there is so much stuff I,m not getting info on.

Holley Shiftwell does NOT have different wheels.  It's just that the factory put some of them on backwards.  Not a big deal!

I didn't think they were still producing Cars in Thailand?

No they aren't. All Thailand did was produce Cars for the Desert Series. China then took over for the Supercharged Series and all the Series' afterwards.

Hello thebreeez.  You bring up some great topics, and I believe all of them have been discussed previously on here, either in Met and Tiz's main-page editorial posts, or here in the forums.  The trick is finding them.

That's why I make Tags whenever I start a new Forum post, it makes it easier to find them with the Search.

Not even HHPC McQueen here yet. But knowing my town, that and the Mel Dorado Case will be skipped and will go straight to a different one.
