I've got nine so far. Still need to find the Search & Rescue, T.L. Tow, and the RR raw version. I doubt I'll ever find the raw one, so I'd be happy with the first two.

Have all but the raw one, and not too interested in that one.

Bill, you, Dave, and I need to have a coffee very soon. :thumbsup:

Sounds good to me. I don't get out of work until 5:30/6:00 now, so it could be easier for me to meet you guys closer to you this time. Maybe someplace in N.K., so you just have to cross the bridge. Or, I could pick up Dave and we cross the bridge to you. Either way is ok with me.

If you're really 'going for it', there are several variations of the Rebel Rods tow trucks - engines, wheels. Good luck with your quest. The tows seem to be a pretty popular casting. You're lucky to have landed the Clark's Towing (my favorite). I'm planning on de-tampoing the Reading Railroad tow and converting it to a gas station tow with decals. It's going to require a lot of masking because there are tampos all over that thing! :drunk: Maybe I'll just strip it and start from scratch... :freak:
OK, RC2, how about some tows w/ Chevy and Dodge cabs?! :thumbsup:

8 reg issue plastic tires 8 diffrent motors
8 wl
8 rr- tires 8 diffrent motors

bwf
8 reg issue plastic tires 8 diffrent motors
8 wl
8 rr-tire 8 diffrent motors
in other words there are.
3 types for each tow truck- example 1 reg plastic tires ovel motor. 1 reg rr tires ovel motor, 1 wl ovel motor. for a grand total of 48 tow trucks

motors are..

#1 injector blower
#2 ovel air cleaner
#3 honey comb
#4 3 hole butter fly
#5 dual quad
#6 high rise dual quad
#7 stacks
#8 bug catcher

then you have the reg issue tow trucks. example-tl tow- jlpd - clarks...
there are 2 each reg and wl version. and you have to remember that there are the rare test trucks example- raw version- see wyatts site
i could be wrong on some of this. if so let me know :wave:

so far i have 42 tow trucks :thumbsup:

i love tow trucks. and collecting them isnt easy...but if you really get seriouse about it
you will find collecting them a challange.
i got lucky the other day and scored a chase route 66 - 1965 ford tow truck with white tow bill. for $15.50 shipping was 5.25

That is easily my favorite casting! I got real lucky and got the rubber tire variations of the Rebel Rods..I left the plastic wheel versions.

I got my Clark Towing Classic Gold off that auction site back when they first came out...

The only one I am missing that I want as of now is the Search and Rescue version.

Great casting...I wish they would use more....and maybe stick the chevy silverado front half on too!!
