    I got my "limited edition" A12 Roadrunner from Carlisle. It's the 2nd "New" A12 runner I,ve owned. Someone should have mentioned to them that the hood was not hinged.

    Wow, I thought it would have been larger, very nice detail for such a small car. The hinged hood is hilarious.

    I just realized another "Fu-pa" with this model. Says its a 440 6-pack on the base. Road Runners were 440 6BBL's. Six Pack is a Dodge designation.
    I might send it back...... :wtf:

    Did the manufacturer use a real Reference Car or settled at looking at Wikipedia...

    I have a Carlisle A12 too. I love everything about it, EXCEPT THE HINGED HOOD. Appears the idiots who made it don't know certain Mopars, as bluefury361 said, "Six Pack" is Dodge term.

    I loved these cars when they were brand new. I was 15 when these monsters hit the showrooms. I had to wait (and work) for 2 years and I bought my first car....a 69 Bee with a 383 in 1971 for $1750.

    I always look for my car on the B-Body line at Carlisle every year hoping the car is still alive.

    AND I get a chance to buy it back!!!!

    I've always thought these were the ultimate packaged muscle car. Brutal, simple, all business, no fluff, down and dirty, and handing out no apologies.
    I would love to own one better yet I would even take a clone so I would not feel bad about running the snot out of it.

    The REAL A12's are super rare cars. Especially like Big John's in Q5 Sea-foam turquoise. According to the A12 Registry site, there were 1,412 A12 Roadrunners and 1,907 Superbee's produced. That does not include Canadian or exported cars. (Look it up.) I'm not really an expert with production numbers. So they are definitely hard to come by. Technically like the Sport Fury S/23 or GT.

    As @70bigblockdodge said, they are one of the ultimate Mopars, and there is something, just something about them. That makes you really, really drool over, and want one. (because it's 446 reasons why everyone loses a street or drag race)

    A friend of mine has a ww1 white A12 Roadrunner with a 4 speed and blue interior. Hell, if I won the lotto and had the garage space I'd definitely buy one too.

    Commando 1. That is a stunning Super-bee tribute. It really looks like the real thing. So much you couldn't tell the difference (except the hood.) I'm seriously not "knocking the car down", but he should of put the A12 hood on, then we'd be talkin'. That way he could get more money out of it, or take it to Barrett Jackson.

    I like understated more than all the extra flashy bits. With these cars the hood is the one thing that eliminates half of the would be competitors at a stop light, kind of Dirty Harry style, "this is the level I am at, do you feel lucky punk". If you make a clone you have to spend the money on the hood and it has to be pinned not hinged. They repop all that stuff so no excuse.

    @70bigblockdodge. I just now realized the tribute Super-bee does have a hinged hood. Yeah, to create an exact tribute, it needs to be a lift off. Or what's the point. Those hoods are actually kind of light IMO. As I said, i'm not "knocking the car down", but just that needs to be fixed. Here's an exact model of my friends. See lift off ralphs toy a12.jpg

    I like the Power Bulge hood like the one on my Bee.
