Nothing like a blast from the past. I hadn't thought about these in years. I built a couple of the car models as a kid. Or course, my mother thought they were hideous.

@KDP: That's what Moms are for.

These kind'a look like "Big Daddy" Ross rip offs.

I also remember building one or two of the models.
Thanks for the post.
