Fresh Cherries 1/60th Checklist?

Does one exist anywhere?

So far, I have collected:

Chevette (Green)
Gremlin (Green)
Maverick (Green w/black stripe)
Mustang II (Brown)
Vega (Silver)

I have yet to get the Pacer, Gremlin X and Pinto, but know where they are so can easily pick them up at a later point. I have seen the Pacer in Red, Black, White, and Orange. Which one of those colors is the rarest one?

But is this all of this series?

OK, got my green Pacer. :)

Also found something interesting regarding the Pinto.

Found a brown and yellow one, but here's the kicker. The brown one is a '71, while the yellow one is a '70.

Now, according to this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Pinto, the Pinto wasn't introduced until '71, so I am wondering if this is a misprint, or was it intentional, or does someone at MotorMax just not have a clue?

Now all I need is the Gremlin X. :)

Hmmm - no comments on this "error"?!?

The Pinto was actually introduced in the fall of 1970 as a 1971 model. Someone at Motormax made a mistake on the packaging I guess, similar to the error on the American Graffiti 76 Chevy Caprice that the package says is a 77.

As far as rare colors on Pacers ,, Ive never seen a white one . I would think production is the same for each color , but who knows for sure if Motormax doesnt tell us ... I do have a white Gremlin ..

You still need the white X. :)

And JUST when I get "caught up" with the Pacer, Pinto, and Gremlin X, I find I am still behind! AUGH!!!

Motor Max made some Chevettes on American Grafitti cards too. I compared the AG casting, and it is identical to the Cherries Chevettes. The chassis is the same too, same writing and other detail, except the AG cars have a plastic chassis where as the Cherries are metal. Cherries have clear plastic headlights, the AG does not. Same tires, wheels, interior.
For my collection, I include the AG Chevettes in with my Cherries Chevettes. The photo below shows the red and bright green AG Chevettes (both with flames removed).
