Zingers! (that is what they are called) Built in the early 70's they were used as promotion in the ISCA hot rod shows.

Thanks for helping me Michel Chaput, Pat Redmond, and Br'er Shaygetz who all let me know a bit more about these! Much appreciated!

MPC put them out in the 70's.
MPC's current owners, Round 2 Models, re-released them earlier this summer.
