    Swivel Butt - does that mean these were real dancers?

  4. Yep. Rapido stuff is very nice but you pay for it without a doubt.

    The 4 pack isn’t much of a deal. What do you save over 4 individual cars, $2.00?

    OUR currency is being devalued to the point of being almost worthless!
    I remember being in Italy back in the 70's and seeing prices while window shopping in the thousands of Lira. Not long after that - the Government dropped a couple of zeros and magicly that 179,000 Lira pair of shoes was "ONLY" 17.90 ? How does that happen - lol.

    Even if you want a single car
    "Single Cars
    Minimum order of two cars required. Road numbers are chosen at random."

    Depends on what a person wants, Rapido has the best details on their offerings. I just wish more was in my time period.

    The new tariff increases may have something to do with the staggering prices of these models.

  14. A fellow truck guy owns Burlington Junction Hobbies. I asked him to check into prices for us. He is a Rapido dealer. He will let me know if he can do better.

    The price of having goods made in China has been increasing. One of the reasons is that the workers are demanding (and getting) higher wages. It's a cycle that's been repeated before with other countries: Japan, Korea, and now China. Mfg is already starting to migrate to the "next" affordable country of significance.

    You are right Andre, the profit margin has to be met, or they move to the next third world country.
