Wendy, I'm home.
Here is my e-mail to Ertl. Hopefully it doesn't go straight to the round file.


Goodmorning,

A group of us owners of 1969-1/2 Plymouth and Dodge A12 package cars are
planning a reunion event at the 2005 Carlisle All-Chrysler Nationals. The
A12 package cars were specially built with Chrysler's first 440 cubic inch,
3x2bbl engines, black lift-off fiberglass racing hood, black wheels with
only chrome lug nuts and a Dana 4.10 rear end. They are ranked at number 3
on the list of fastest muscle cars.

We will attempt to get more than 100 to the reunion in an effort to bring
more attention to these rare cars. Very few are seen at the National meets
and we would like to make this a recurring event. Of about 4200 built, only
a few hundred are known to exist.

Our interest in contacting you is to inquire about the possibility of
producing a plastic or die cast scale model of both cars. There are
certainly many owners and hobbyists who would want to add one of these to
their collections.

Information about the group and the registry for these cars can be found at
this link:

http://www.sixpacksixbbl.homestead.com/index~ns4.html

It would truly be an honor for us to have the car reproduced in scale if
your company could produce it.

Sincerely,
Frank Smolik

This is the e-mail that I am sending to all the listed clubs found at www.yesterdays-cars.com/Mopar_clubs.htm. It's way easier to cut and paste email addresses than stuff envelopes. The clubs without email contacts will get a letter.



Dear fellow Mopar enthusiast,

A group of 1969-1/2 A12 package Roadrunner and Super Bee owners including
myself are planning a Reunion for the All Chrysler Nationals at Carlisle in
2005. In restoration and preparation terms, this date is not that far off.
There are many of our cars registered at the Registry website:

http://www.homestead.com/sixpacksixbbl/index.html


We are asking for your help in spreading the word and extending the
invitation to your members who have one of these cars and also to
invite those who are fans. We hope to have 50 to 100 cars in 2005 and then
have a Reunion every 3-5 years thereafter.

It will be an impressive sight to have this many A12s in one place since
they left the Lynch Road assembly plant in 1969.

Details will be unfolding and available at the Registry and at the A12
Restoration Forum on MOPARTS.COM.


Please help spread the word.

Sincerely,
Frank Smolik
A12 owner

If they do produce the A12 Runners (scale models that is) sign me up for a couple.

They can build the Road Runner as long as they don't call it a "Road Runner". I'd be happy if they just called it a "Plymouth"


(That's why all the new cars are called "GTX". They even built a blue "Superbird" without the Road Runner logo's on them.)

I can still get my hands on 1/18 scale Runners with decals, but not with the lift off hood. The one for the Bee don't fit and the decal on them are not the same. If they make a GTX or Plymouth with the "440 6BBL" decal on a fiberglass hood, I would buy some just for the hood to transfer onto the Runners out there.

Coop, That's great, now to find the model. Too bad no picture, but that's probably the right size hood/scoop for the hats, also. A little spendy to be puttin' those on hats but maybe you'd get a break for a large purchase.

And, you just HAPPENED to run across that website?? LOL

Was kind of hoping for a finished hood for the 1/18 size Ertl. Not too handy at putting my own together, that's why I buy the Johnny Lightnings.

I'm friends with Rob and John @ MCG and will try to remember to call them next week after the Las Vegas show to see if they've been told about this. As for models, if a Road Runner model car be had I will want a couple. Lon

Frank, Ahooah, Lon,

Glad to put you guys onto something for the RR models.

I'm trying to find scoops, not hoods, that we can mount on hat bills...unless you think entire hoods- sitting on hat bills- would look OK?

Here's the link for 'Competition Resin' parts. There's just about every kind of scoop known to man on this site. Check through all 7 pages and you'll see what's there.

Landy scoops, Dart Hemi scoops, Six pack scoops, AAR snorkel scoops, you name it, this guy makes it (our six pack scoop is 13 down on this page).

Problem is these scoops are too small to mount on hat bills. I called this guy today and he says they are about 1 inch by 1 inch. No way we get our call outs on those tiny scoops.

No worries, one of our members MIGHT be able to resin mold and produce the right size for us. But he's not sure so keep your eyes open in the meantime, please.
