Awesome car, but once again.. no wicker bill on the roof! ITS NOT THAT HARD!
whats a wicker bill?
It’s a two part piece of the aero package. The wicker bill consists of two parts, a roof strip and a spoiler-a tiny spoiler-that sits right up front on the roof. This mini spoiler changes the way the air flows across the car, allowing the car itself to punch a bigger hole in the draft, which in turn gives the car a stronger “suck up” capability. The whole thing works together to give the less experienced drivers an extra cushion when it comes to drafting…a little more room to work with and a little stronger suction once they get there. The larger the wicker bill, the greater the down force. It can make a huge difference in the way the car feels to the driver.

That is a high quality explanation. :congrats:

That is a great explanation Joker, except the wicker bill is the little lip on the top of the rear spoiler, actually on the trailing edge of the spoiler. It sticks up usually in a different direction than the spoiler itself. It is also known as a Gurney Lip.
The roof part is simply called a Roof Blade. I only know this as I worked for Billy Meyer on his Funny Car in the 80's and we had them on the car (wicker bills), and the T/F cars run them. As well, the Indy cars run them also. Just some technical jargon. Not trying to pick you apart. They are also on the rear wings of the COT.

If you could get either for the same price which would be cooler to get. Raced or Non raced version
The autographed non-raced version is available on his website for 65.

That's a tough call. In the past the ones that I thought we be the most sought after have not been the ones I thought they would be....does that make sense? LOL!
Like the Jr. 01'MLB All-Star car. I would have thought for sure the raced version would have been the cooler one, but everybody wanted the clean car.
The same way w/the Harvick Coast Guard car. I guess it is your call, as to what you would prefer.
I myself, usually go for the clean version, unless the raced version is the only way it was made. JMHO.
