Wow!:shocked: I remember them well. I got the Kansas Kruiser one year for Christmas off an uncle. Must be nearly thirty years ago? Here's a scan of the Airfix catalogue I found ages ago. Note the Rebel Rouser Victor estate.

"This kit never made it into production, possible reasons for this include lack of sales for the custom car series, Airfixs' deteriorating financial position at this time or even the racist connotations (in America at least) of the Southern Cross Rebel flag - although that didn't stop the General Lee!"

"Dean Benton tells me that the Vauxhall Victor estate was planned as a further release in this series and Airfix told him that they got as far as altering the molds so a re issue of the standard Victor is unlikely"

That must be why the standered kit goes 4 good money-i see this one go for £128.

You don't need any more, your turning into a collector than a builder.
Have you started your comp models yet?
I may have to pull out of the comp and do them if and when, i'm just not getting any time at the moment. :sniff:
