Rusty, that car will always hold a special place in my heart. Monogram produced these kits along with a slot racing version that is highly collectable and out of my price range. In the Early-Mid 60s one of the first trophies that I ever won slot racing was for winning a series for the Monogram Midgets at a track in Petersburg, Virginia. Fast forward 30 years and you will find me traveling from Virginia to Myerstown and Lancaster Pa. to race sprint cars that were hand made by Wendell Veach (Hack Chassis) and others and low and behold I see a collection of about 25 Monogram Midgets in a showcase at Fast Lanes in Myerstown, Pa owned by as man by the name of Tom, can't remember his last name. He had so many and would not sell even one but I understood.
Thank you for this walk down memory lane.
