Racing Champions Are Back
The grand ole' Racing Champions have hit the pegs once again. RC is now a division of Round2 which produces Johnny Lightning and Auto World. I have to be honest here and say I wasn't very impressed when I first discovered RCs bank in the late 80s. Their main released cars were the NASCAR replicas. NASCAR had hit it's peak it seems up to the mid 90s and went down hill from there. I also lost my interest about then. The early RC NASCAR replicas were pretty much junk, but the only thing available at that time. Through the early 90s the quality and detail did greatly improve. RC began releasiing other series such as the Stock Rods, Hot Rods,Mint, and American Muscle. Quality was still in the mid range though. They became kind of scarce for awhile. Since the recent re-release of the new RCs, I have been extremely inpressed with the ones I have acquired. Looking forward to my collection growing whet the new higher detailed and higher quality cars!
