I saw one of these at Walmart's tonight. It's yellow. I almost bought it, but I thought the $15 price was a bit too much.

Steve,
We bought one not to long ago. I think we paid $12.00 or $13.00 for it at Wally World. Also found out that Ertl has a web site now. www.rcertl.com They need a search feature.

Does it look authentic,or is it an "almost" attempt? I haven't seen too many 71-73 Mustang models with the right proportions.

It's like most die-cast. It's 'kinda' close, but if you really know the car it's way off on a few things. The rear wing, for example, looks like it belongs on a ricer.

I got it, it was the first model i saw that remotely resembled my car! That wing is pretty high, so are the mirrors. Also, i've never seen a 71-73 ram air hood with cowl vent slots before.
