A big ol' Saleen. I just noticed this is one of the one of every maker listings of 1 Badd Ride. Does anyone have more of a history on them? Are they still around? etc?
Thanks for the info! :thumbsup:@craftymore
1 Badd Ride was in business in the middle aughts of the 2000s. They were similar to JADA with bling rims and slightly distorted proportions though not as bad as JADA. Right off hand I don't recall any other company acquiring their castings to use in other lines.
I don't know the details, and my French sucks. Having said that, I think it says Auto Club of the West, or Western Automobile Club...something of that nature. I am not certain of the relationship that led to the tampo, and I don't recall seeing any of these in blister. They are fairly common though, and come up quite often in my searches for Playart. This is the only model I have seen with this tampo.

I've seen a couple veriations of blue tint on the roof of this casting (Small Diecast Corvettes site ) I have a couple with this lighter blue tint , still looking for the less opaque blue tint and 5 dot wheel variant ...happy hunting
