I Think That they are the same casting, just different names on the same casting, The Al Unser car is the hard to find car! That said, I will say that i am NOT an EXPERT Hope this helps you!

Here's my understanding about the Indy cars, which of
coarse is not written in stone and subject to change
at any moment.

All three cars are the same casting with different
names on the chassis.

You should only find the Al Unser on the Indy Winner
card, but to save cost, Topper slipped P. Jones into
the blister even thou it's labeled Al Unser. You can
find all three indy cars on the challengers card. Also
it is said that you wont find a ruby colored Al Unser.







I've also read that all three cars may have came with
a plastic wing, but personally I believe at the moment
only the P. Jones did.







Finally I'm looking for a nice A.J. Foyt in blister,
so if anybody has one their willing sell, please
contact me.

Hey, Bunkerjim, may I borrow your Al Unser says "Johnny Lightning beats them all" pic?

That is too cool. I think it would do today's JL collectors a bit of good to be reminded of their "heritage."

Generally I don't have any problem with anybody

borrowing my pics, as long as there not being used

for anything dishonest.... don't want to see them

on E-Bay unless I put them there. :eek:

What's the white piece in with the Parnelli car? Is it an adapter to run in the Hot Wheels accelerator buildings?

No I don't believe the plastic piece would offer any help for
the car to go through the Hot Wheels accelerator buildings.
It would need to be on the side of the car to keep the tires
from getting caught.

I would have to speculate that it may have helped keep the
motor from getting caught on the slotted plastic shielding
that was over the track, that you would find on some of the
Johnny Lightning accelerators.
