Yeah, that was something Tom Z talked about last year at Lightningfest 08 only the contest/prizes were supposed to be a Lightningfest 09 event.Check it out...These 40ths have vin #'s under the hoods. (I did not know that)
I wonder that too? What is a "real" spoiler? I have all the spoiler series and all the gumball number cars....They all have things in common, mostly the gumballs and open hood blown motors...yet some "real" spoilers dont have open hoods..#3 cobra and #3 70 challenger? I'd like to know the answer too?Now that it's been said that the number 13 car pictured in the blog isn't a "REAL" spoiler can someone please elaborate on what that exactly means?
Now that's a real spoiler!

That's OK, it's a free country and they are free to be wrongYou know they're the same thing and I know they're the same thing, but there's always someone out there that will argue that they're not.
I think I explained it pretty well. The Rebel Rods and the Spoilers are a series. The name change was a legal thing that no one liked but we have to live with. JL screwed up and lost the rights, but once it was done, they couldn't fix it, so we just moved on under the new name. The important things is they kept the sequence. Now they have failed again by issuing cars that confuse the issue. What about the other 40th cars with bulleyes and numbers? Are we supposed to call them Spoilers as well? Not in my book.Just like the comment about that #13 car pictured on the blog. I just don't understand the logic behind someone saying it's not a "Real" spoiler.
No one has claimed that JL hasn't made mistakes in this series, they certainly have. The multiple Superbee #12's was a mistake. Releasing a second #20 after they already released #20 as a Toy Fair car was a mistake. Labeling #26 as #76 just because it was a 76 Camaro was a mistake. Releasing the box set with new numbers #1 through #5 was a mistake.Remember when the # 26 car was skipped and in it's place we got a #76 car instead? Some people questioned why that was and Tom Z finally announced the release of the #26 not as a spoiler but rather a Lightning Rod.
