Can we have some pics of the F150? I can't recall having seen detailed pics of the King Ranch before.

:cheers

Congrats Gary! Porsches are sufficiently addictive without also getting into American muscle cars---both are bottomless pits of "investment". :scared But h3ll, you'll probably only go bankrupt once! :giggle :giggle

Thanks Al , Ive been looking for a King Ranch for awhile now , but endless Ebay searches came to nothing .

I have all the HD 150s and really wanted to add this one and now thanks to Jeff , I have . He also picked up the rest of these cars for me , and I have to say , I love them all .
American Muscle is certainly a fast growing theme for me now . :cheers

There is an often repeated rumor that only 2,800 of the 5,000 King Ranch's made it out of Ertl's warehouse. RC2 was said to have been ordered by THE King Ranch to destroyed them since Ertl had not retained the license from the KR to make them.
I have also heard eBay got dragged in to it and they are not supposed to allow them to be sold on their site, like guns, blood or body organs. :giggle

Do you have the OCC and the Pheasants F-150s? What about the elusive Lobo edition?
