If your new to collecting and if your not familiar with the Legends of the Quarter Mile Series replicas please do what smart people do and research the product. The Legends series has been a big hit to collectors all over the world and the pricing of the earlier releases in the secondary market has skyrocketed! Ask any knowledgeable collector.
As most collectors know ACME released a Don “The Snake” Prudhomme 1/18th scale Ramp truck that is sold out and we might add sold out within days if not hours. 636 ramp trucks were made. Unfortunately we sold out of our numbers but as always we are working with ACME on obtaining a few extra from dealers who defaulted on their orders. If your one of the lucky ones who got one and may want to match our funny car and the ramp truck an FYI here, the Hot Wheels yellow and the Care Free yellow back in the actual days were and are different. The replicas do reflect the differing yellows.
