I won't be getting the Pit Stops unless the car is only available that way, IE, the Geico #7 BGN car which is not being done in Driver's Select.

FWIW, the Driver's Select Yeley I got had no Bud Pole logo either...

I did not even think they made pitstop cars last year? I did not see any.
My understanding was the pitstop car was the same as last year's 1:64 rcca club car (that is no longer being made), and the select/champion version was the new rcca elite which is also no longer being made in 1:64.

The Pit Stops are basically WC cars in a box. Neither the trunk nor the hood open on those and they are very cheaply made. The Driver's Select are the old HO version which are basically 1/64 club cars being distributed via retail.

Thanks Spool.
Did they make any last year, or are these simply replacement attempts to fill the void of the RCCA cars?

RCCA has cut the Club Car, they are only doing Elites this year, and not many of them at that.

Nearly every car is being done in the Driver's Select line.

I do not know if by "not many" you mean production run numbers, or specific cars.

They made one for the 2007 Gordon regular paint scheme, but then did not put one out for the new 2007 Pepsi and 2007 Nicorette schemes.

If they are just going to pick and choose which paint schemes for which drivers to put out then that may be what drives me out altogether.

Who and what makes the Drivers Select line? This is the first I have heard of such a thing? Where do you get em?

Sorry, I should have been clearer. By not many I mean not many diffrent cars.

Hit the thread titled "So Many Brands", I typed out a complete guide to 2007 Diecast there...
