Model dragster in Hod Rod Magizine
#1
According to Hot Rod this is a model of a '70 dragster. It sure doesn't look like one to me.

And according to Lindberg, this is a '71:

Makes you wonder what would happen if Hot Rod talked about that one...or if they reviewed both kits side-by-side. Laugh fest.

Honestly - our cars have taken more crap over the years than the II.

Think about how many Craigslist ads are incorrect. Keep in mind parts get swapped around.
SO the what seems to be a 73 Mach 1 by the pic of the front bumper and grill
THAT is advertised as a 71 or 72 - might actually be a 71 or 72 with the wrong stuff. Or vica versa...

I see it all the time. There was a 70 hardtop on CL that they kept advertising as a 71 or 72!

Oh well.

Doesn't take much to deduce. The critics panned it when it came out, and the public internalized that opinion, rather than trying out the product for themselves.

40 years down the line, the effects of those critics remain firmly rooted in folks minds.

I'll bet you that 90% of the '71-73 detractors haven't even sat in a Sportsroof (much less driven one) to judge - for themselves - whether the rear window is a "mail slot" or not.

More amusing (read = ridiculous) are the seemingly large rear windows on any number of automobiles made today which point more at the sky than the traffic behind due to wedge bodystyles (not to mention that the view is obscured by a pair of huge headrests and gratuitous C-pillar padding).
