Street Mustang out

The yellow / black scalextric Mustang is out. But maybe it should be 'A yellow / black Scalextric Mustang is out - not the one Scalextric described and we all expected though...

On all the advertisement pictures the Mustang is a 1969 (easily recognizable with different grill and the four lamps at the front). Strangely enough and without warning Scalextric has choosen to make the 1970 Mustang instead. Another issue is that the 'paint scheme' is a significantly different one from the one seen on pictures. Basically the only thing that the slotcar has in common with the pictures is that it is a black and yellow street mustang. It is surpirzing considering that none of these changes are needed because Scalextric has the right car model (1969) available AND the paint scheme that was advertised is hardly more difficult to make then the one they actually made.

Well, I have to say....this thread has completely confused me (and i've already read it 3 times!)

As I understand it, the point is that the promo photo used by scaley was a 1969 Mustang and the model we've ended up with is a 1970 Mustang. And the paint job has changed a bit.

Either way, I reckon that looks like a great car to me and if it performs as well as previous scaley Mustangs then i'm happy. Actually, looking at it I have to wonder why they didn't choose to pair the Mustang with the S&H me it just seems to "fit" better than the vette.
