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.

The last one looks kinda like the clown from Stephen King's "It".

Thanks for the post.
