Hemi Under Glass

We have just received the handsome Hemi Under Glass special edition by Highway 61, a Plymouth Barracuda like no other. The Hurst Corporation sponsored a number of exhibition racers during the 60s and none of them were more famous than this one, built and driven by Bob Riggle. The 1500 horsepower 426 Hemi® engine was mounted in the rear of the car to create the feather-light front end and rear weight distribution needed to do endless "wheelies" down the strip. The 727 Torqueflight transmission ran into a marine Casale V drive, then back to a reversed rear differential which was flipped over so the ring and pinion gears ran forward. A Plexiglas panel was mounted into the forewall below the dash, allowing Bob to see the track ahead while riding an eight-foot wheelstand.

Sadly, the exhibition craze of the 60s and 70s died, and the original "Hemi Under Glass" 'Cuda shell sat behind Bob Riggle's shop in Prescott, Arizona. After a chance meeting with the "First Lady of Drag Racing", Linda Vaughn, she suggested that Bob resurrect the "Hemi Under Glass". As a result a replica of the 1966 car was built and debuted at the 1992 NHRA U.S. Nationals, and according to Dick Maxwell of Chrysler, is the longest running exhibition car in drag racing today.

Special Edition limited to 1 of 1,002. Includes stamped-steel "wheelie" stand, certificate of authenticity, and special gift box.

Also, we have one SINGLE piece of this one, and will not likely get more. Get it while it lasts!

Introducing Marley!

I wanted to take just a moment to introduce the newest member of our blogging and product management team. Marley has been a good friend of mine for a few years and I'm so happy to have her on board with 3000toys! She is providing a new perspective for us since she is still learning about our products. So far her favorites seem to be from Eligor, because they are so fun and unique.

I also would like to say a quick thanks to our faithful customers. I've received so many kind notes by email and regular mail lately, and it's a little overwhelming to see all the nice things that you have to say. Here's a little of what I've seen this week:

"THANK YOU so much for your FANTASTIC customer service...... met and exceeded any online shipping experience I've had. Their customer service is fast and friendly. A top notch online place to buy toys!!"

"I didn't even expect to get a return email, let alone a replacement. I have your business card ... and I will be sure to carry it in my wallet as a handy way to recommend your company to other collectors/modelers"

We really value you, our customers, and love to get feedback. On behalf of all of us, thank you for showing us your support.
