Big things with little cars

Circle Track Saturday: Old school Monte Carlos

I took a trip to Walmart on Thursday night, hoping to find some new How Wheels, or better yet new Auto Worlds (I’m beginning to lose hope of that ever happening). No dice on either, but as I was about to leave, the Intimidator caught my eye. Of all the things I expected to find, an 80's Dale Earnhardt Monte Carlo was not on that list.

Pulling it off the pegs revealed a 70's Monte Carlo in Richard Childress colors. I don’t follow NASCAR anymore, but these I had to have.


Quality is OK. They look good, but the bases wheels and tires are all plastic, and they feel pretty light. The boxes are a neat inclusion.

I won’t be seeking any more of these, but I’m glad to have them.
