        It is...and always has been lol. If you want to keep it intact, remove it. I am glad they don't glue it down just for that reason.

          Didn’t think I’d buy any more wing cars but that 14 is sweet

            No idea. Same amount that likely know Ramo. But they are still great cars and most younger folks I show them to (in my classes) at least have a clue what kind of crs they are.

            How about Marty Robbins?
            Carrera could sell a ton of those in Nashville and on CMT.
            OK, maybe a few.

            Oh the Marty car will be one of the best this year. They will all sell out as they always do.

            This is my 100% biased opinion.

          Still running a class for these cars. I've repainted a few of them to have some additional liveries. Great to see that Carerra stayed with a similar chassis style as well.

            Noticed these on-line over the weekend. They look great! I’m sure Carrera will sell a few of these beauties here in the US market

              Would a Plymouth Road Runner driven in NASCAR by Vic Elford be a seller here and in Europe?

                A Jim Clark '67 Fairlane (Rockingham) would be nice as well.

                My take is no, Elford is not a name with any notoriety in stock car circles. Same goes for Jim Hall. Heck, there's not even anything much regarding Harry Gantt, the Bodine boys, Rusty Wallace, Tim Richmond, etc. who were well known. IMHO stock cars with Elford or Hall on them wouldn't sell on either side of the Atlantic unless the cars were drop dead beautiful and it was the car itself that caught people's eye.

              Not really getting it....but even a STREET Mopar sells out.

                A Plymouth Road Runner and NASCAR should appeal to Americans.
                Driver Vic Elford should appeal to Europeans.

                Perhaps. But from what I have heard from others over the years, it never mattered what they painted the classics. Especially in Germany. American muscle just seems to sell well. Well, except maybe for the “bling editions” with those spinner wheels.

              Great review as always and great cars as I have both as well
              And I can’t believe they are only $32 a piece...

                Interesting article on the Ramo ARCA model. Little hard to read , but you can get the idea. Basically it’s about how ARCA changed the rules and outlawed the aero package, in a sense “plucking the wing and nose.”

                  Looks like Ramo assumes the trophy girl comes with the trophy. Maybe so back then.

                  Neat story and it explains the C pillar on the Carrera model.
                  Carrera has done Stott’s Superbird. Hard to find now.

                Glad you liked it.

                More nostalgia on the models in case anyone is suffering from insomnia...

                Why wasn't Ramos name on the original?

                Because the "air vents" that Carrera used would cover the name anyway. So it wasn't done.

                The amount of rake on the cars is because the photos used almost 20 years ago showed mostly static cars for the "Daytona Photo Album".

                As we all know, they were that way because the raced speeds would slam that hind end down.

                So many photos. How do you make it look "right". Back then on the old forum guys were comparing in race photos against what was made. Well, of course they were tall in ass

                So they are what they are. Never stopped us from tuning them. Some have slammed them a lot lower than looks right to me, trying to make them run like "LMP" cars as some did back then.

                But I always felt they were NOT supposed to act like LMP models.

                Imperfect as any other model...even these days. But still a ball.

                    Its great to see the Winged Warriors back. I really didn't think we would see them again. Im biased but these are in my opinion the best car series in 1/32. Heres hoping we get more again in the future. There's still a lot of Superbirds & Daytonas left that can be made!

                      Great video Harry
                      Love these cars and glad they are making them again. Had to put all the Plymouth stockers out on the track for a group pic.
                      And a pic of the two Ramo Scott cars side by side.
