which no longer claims the MUG root beer car was a T-Bird. They even apologised on behalf of Tomart's guide, although I suspect there may be a copyright Issue looming :-)
Now to get the Stock Cars legends listing sorted.


New Hot Wheels 1957

As reported in Dot Lang's Newsletter the car will be given out at a Houston Astros baseball game in September.
A "pre Release" has been sold on eBay
If it hadn't been for the Bloomingdales set, it would have been this months record for a HotWheels T-Bird


New Micro Machines

1989 Super Coupe in Europe only Set
Same mould as the MM "Private Eyes" series but without "sun roof"
White with Red stripes, 7 spoke wheels, and #46 on doors

It has been a LONG time since models were available in the UK but not in the US, I for one think the new US copyright/trademark laws are "ruddy marvelous" to quote that well known cockney and friend of Mary Poppins, Dick Van Dyke


New on www.TBirdUK.com

Not a lot, but a new Improved Navigation aid for Brooklin and Johnny Lightning is in place and the JL Racing Dreams section updated.


Good Hunting
