Where Do I Find Aurora Xlerator Information???

I went looking around and didn't have any luck. I'm looking for the various releases in order and sets. With the corresponding years and stuff like that. Slotmonsters doesn't cover them??

Thanks Joe

A smaller start

I just started rebuilding my site. I have a few Xlerator references and will continue to update.

Thanks Paul.

I am still wanting to know when they came out, which cars came first second third and so on. And sets too.

I will keep hunting.

I wonder if Bob's bible has anything. It's amazing I still don't have a copy of his book. I need a copy

yes, the Bob Beers book has a section on XLerators. If I'm reading it right, there were exactly 10 bodies released as XLerators. This is the order he lists them in:

Ferrari GTO in red (modified by adding little wings on the front fenders in front of the wheelwells)
Ford GT in blue
Ford J car (4 different paint schemes)
Chaparral 2F (4 different paint schemes)
Camaro (3 different paint schemes)
Firebird (3 different paint schemes)
Vega (2 different paint schemes)
Blazer (4 different paint schemes)
Cougar (3 different paint schemes)
Willys (3 different paint schemes)

Sorry, no idea on which sets had which cars or when...

Yeah, I'm pretty sure Faller and Lionel both used versions of the same thing for different purposes.

I don't know why I don't have it. Maybe because I know the whole collection in there (most of the cars) came from a Tom, who I know for a long time. I guess it might have something to do with it.

But I need to get me a copy!!!
