    Ok...so I'm confused on this one. Ive always been a big Waltrip collector. Going through the pile of stuff I have I noticed these 2 use the same trading card in the package. Date on the back of the card is the same. But what I notice is one car has the side decal where the other is missing. Then I notice the back end. Look at the car on top where there is the groove under the spoiler where as the bottom car is a smooth finish. What gives...

    Don't take this as fact, but I thought I recalled some one telling me that would run out of one casting and just substitute a different one even for the same year. The early Racing Champions were never big on accuracy or consistency.

    My best resource and point of reference has always been Billy Kingsley and the Diecast 101 thread. I haven't seen him around though for quite some time. Does anyone know how he's doing?

    You are correct, RC was well known for the variant cars, that is what made them fun to find.
