Thanks for the report!

Not much of a truck person, but bring on those Brabham F1! :)

Ordered mine , the Brabhams that is. Not many cars showing Canadian colors so Eppies was a must have, and Carlos is too good not to have in the collection.

Any price point on the White Truck Kits? I could see that used as a donor for a "Proper" Wrecker kit-bash

Why hating on the Carrera wrecker? It’s cool.

Because, even though it IS a toy we don't want it looking like a toy. Especially a european toy, at least here in America.

Why wouldn't he be serious? We have heard from Dave Kennedy (many times) that American hot rods and stock cars are not popular in Europe, largely because people don't recognize them. Doesn't it make sense that the same attitude would apply to Americans looking at an antique Euro-truck toy?

Who's we sucker? (Doing my best Dirty Harry bad guy impersonation. :P )

I for one applaud Carerra and any other manufacture that tries to appeal to other segments within the market. Some cars may not be my cup of tea but if there are other groups that enjoy them, then it's good for the hobby.
