The gang was named after their use of the 1934 Packard. The one on the far end was thought to be one of the lost cars but paper work showed it was repainted to be museum stand in. The other 3 are unrestored they were parked in a controlled storage garage hidden away from the police after a major bust sent mostly all members to jail.

When found more evidence was found inside the cars from Bank robberies including untouched full bags of money the gang was going to split before a stool pigeon ratted them out. (That person was never seen again though)

The 3 variations from 1983 Hong Kong ‘34 Packard & classic Packard bases, Malaysia base, and 1997 China base. The casting wouldn’t be used again until 2009 that saw a casting change that covered up a the rear side windows.

It’s funny the hot wheels wiki doesn’t list the ‘34 Packard base as a variation.
