Right out of the gate, I get the argument on the Pass’n Gasser. It is based on a ’37 Ford, and I should have probably given it some love here, but I have always considered it unlicensed. I might be wrong. But when you look at the ’55 Bel Air, Supernova, and Mercury Cyclone Gassers, plus the ’63 Nova and Dodge Coronet A/FX cars, you have a nice dragstrip family. Maybe I will have to give the Pass’n Gasser its own feature someday. If I have any.
For now, since my Gasser Family (and I use the term loosely with the A/FX cars, so bear with me) is complete, here are all the releases of the five I collect:
We’ve got more coming. RLC and Convention Supernovas, 50th Favorite Gassers (standard and TRU exclusive), and with the Dragstrip Demons mix coming in Car Culture, anything can happen.

These are some great cars. The Morris gasser is another HW that I believe is underrated and hasn’t spent too much time in the spotlight. I wish there were more ‘premium’ releases available.
The Pass’n Gasser is licenced. It has the FoMoCo licencing stamp on the back of the card. It just has a “funny name/pun” for a name like some other licenced castings.
