I'll order it now. I remember how astonishing it was for so many people including me, to see That car, that team, beat out everybody in that unique race. I remembered how many cars had left the mountain (in spectacular, if tragic ways) over the years. Then, here was a good ol' boy (and team), tearing it up, and winning! Good times.

BTW we worked with Mr. Unser directly on this project. I've been emailing him for a while now and keeping him informed about the process... his sample cars are getting shipped this week :)

Thanks for the review Harry, I'm happy to be able to add another classic stock car (or more correctly said "hill climb car") to the field of cars we've done over the past 10 or so years.

Thank you sir. The car has so much history that hill climb or not, it's just a must have in the fleet.

And appreciate this car and the continuing efforts.

This weekend's race will be chock full of Carrera NASCARS and hope to have this one tuned for the fun.

Picked one up today at Mark Twain Hobbies in St. Charles, Mo.
It's customer appreciation weekend. Everything 20% off (in store only). Lots of Carrera 1/32, both digital and analog, and Scalextric. Some HO cars. Many Carrera and AFX sets.
