      Note the last T70 shown is a limited edition - we have very limited quantities. This particular car was limited to 200 pcs. worldwide.

        Small point,....but,...it is a shame they could not get the spelling of Rogers' last name correct .....(it is McCluskey)

          Hello Chris,

          Another forum member (oldskoolslotz) made a similar comment/observation in one of the other sub-forums. A quick google search shows quite a few examples of other model cars in different scales with the same misspelling. "McCluskey" as you point out is the correct spelling; however, I'm wondering if the paint shop made a mistake on the actual 1:1 car (it wouldn't be the first time this happened...)? I tried to find a (legible) picture of the rear fender of the actual car to see if that might be the case but didn't have any luck.

          Regards,
          Steve

          The Thunderslot is not that accurate in color or configuration. But I can see where they made a mistake.

          Sloter made the same years ago. And if you look closer...many diecast companies did the same.

            Well Steve,.......you may be right !!...........I have also found a few various manufacturer versions of the "McCluskey" T70, with "McClusky" on the rear fenders, and while pictures of the 1:1 car are certainly out there, I have not found any so far where his name on the rear fenders is legible.

            If it is in fact accurate, and, was the sign painters error, he likely was not paid in full for this project

            Cheers

                Between Thunderslot, Slot.it and NSR, I don't have nearly enough money for all of the classic slots I'd like to purchase....Not even close!

                Ideally, I would own every Thunderslot car. They are that good!

                      Hey gang, in my copy of Dave Friedman's Lola Can-Am and Endurance Race Cars, page 103, top right, you can just make out Roger McCluskey's name on the fender. It is misspelled on the car, so the model and slot manufacturers appear to have it right as the car appeared. It is kind of hard to see, but the E is clearly missing.

                          Good catch! I have the same book and after looking at the photo under magnification agree the name is misspelled on the 1:1 race car. I hope Roger got a laugh out of that at the time! He was my favorite driver of the early 70's, I saw him race in all of the USAC Milwaukee Mile events during that period. I still have a personalized autograph he signed to me in the summer of 1974 when I was 11 years old.

                            That's awsome you saw that. I didn't care. for me either way. And the yellow paint isn't as strong as it's on the pictures.
                            it's a lighter yellow. Thunder slot did a good job. Am glad I picked it up. Now for the independent front wheels and wood guide and nsr rubber should scream like my other thunder slots.
