Thanks for posting these Harry!
And a family photo of the racing versions we've done since I've been with the company.

Boy, that silver car looks great.

Is there any chance of getting one without the number?

I need to add it to my collection of Carrera street muscle cars. :D

Image

I purchased the orange and white ones in the hopes I could gently lift the numbers and keep the rest of the strips and such. But man, those numbers do not budge! I ruined one and just let the other one for a repaint.

Dave, Carrera makes a great product. Please don't forget us guys who got started collecting the street range. We need something new too!

And that silver stang' is simply superb. I love the windshield Ford logo! That looks like something cruising on a Friday night in every small town in America.

I hear you Ken. The problem is that street cars just don't sell as well as a car with a number on the door. So each time I have to suggest cars I really do pause to think if we should make a street version with the limited number of suggestions I get to make each year.

Looking at that photo... um... have you bought any of the more recent street cars we have made? All those cars look to be nearly 10 years old.

Dave if street cars don't sell as well could you maybe offer a car already in production like the silver one on a limited run of say maybe 500 or what ever as a Tampo delete edition. Between three manufacturers and scratch building I have about 40 street cars and that silver car without sponsorship and numbers would make a killer Eleanor
So far behind I'm in first!

yes it's possible to do that BUT any limited run of cars would be MORE expensive. We cannot run such a small number of cars that you mention, it's completely not cost effective. Taking away printing on some cars doesn't save overall because it makes it a totally different car, there are costs associated with that.
As I mentioned I get a handful of choices each year to suggest... i have to decide each year of that choice is going to be strong enough to put my eggs into that basket.
Also an example, if one year we make a one-off street car and no other street car of that era we really don't have the option to then put that one-off car into a set with a car that's a race version. Which is limiting as you might expect. If we have a pair of cars that are street cars then we have options (single cars and sets).
