True story. A couple of Fridays ago I was in a waiting room, doing what everyone does in a waiting room these days – putzing around on my phone. Inevitably I found myself on Facebook. Kid pictures – Trump – Summer vacation – Trump – movie trailer – Trump. You know the scrolling drill. It went on – Trump, Trump, Auto World Lead Sled Drag Wagon, Trumphhhhhh….wait what!?! Scroll back.
Yeah, I saw this:
I looked at the post from Auto World’s Facebook page and literally blurted out an “oh wow”. I got looks. I probably deserved them. But how else was I supposed to react?
We all look at our phones. We all react to what we see. But we usually keep those reactions to ourselves. Three people could be looking at their phones, all reacting to what they are reading differently, but you wouldn’t know because their expressions are exactly the same. Not me, at least when I saw this model (and when I am on @kookslams on IG, but that is another thing).
So if I am going to embarrass myself in a waiting room, the model is probably a good one. And the upcoming Auto World Lead Sled most certainly is. This is the first “custom” Kingswood by Auto World, but it is based on a real car.
The wheels on the finished product will be more like the real thing, and all the rest of the details are there. You can see the Ultra Red Chase as well. Auto World is even going further by imagining their own street version in black:
How cool are these!?!? Cool enough to blurt your feelings out in public like I did?
Here is what you need to know. This is a hobby exclusive, and will be out this fall. That means the only way to get both is by buying from a hobby dealer online or in person.
Auto World has started doing more hobby exclusives, starting in July with two Impalas and the Ford GT40. I previewed them a few days ago on YouTube, and the photo showcase is coming:
I am always for variety, and Auto World is definitely doing that with some of their latest offerings like these hobby exclusives and the Brochure Barracuda.
The obsession grows.
