background looks familiar to me, and being AMT, it looks

1966 Batmobile, and

Challenger & Plymouth Barracuda - Designed by Chrysler,
the Plymouth Barracuda and Dodge Challenger went on to become
two of the most revered muscle cars. Modern color photos of
the finest Barracudas and Challengers in existence are accompanied
by the cars design and production histories. All drive train,
special package, and engine options are detailed, and readers

500 and Thunder Alley - "Fireball 500" can be
considered the last of the Beach Party films since it was
directed by William Asher and features Frankie Avalon, Annette
and Harvey Lembeck except they aren't close to their normal
surf and sand creations. Lembeck is no longer nutty biker
Erik Von Zipper. He's a Southern bootlegger who also deals
in racing. Frankie plays a racecar driver working his way
down to Daytona. These are the early days of NASCAR before
sponsors made life so much easier for the drivers. So instead
of getting cash from Budweiser like Dale Jr., Frankie scores
extra bucks by hauling moonshine for Lembeck.
& Challenger Muscle Car Color History - Excellent
book for visual identification of 1964-1974 cars. Text is

also gives production figures broken down by models for each
year--a nice extra!
