NEW (September 2006): changes and corrections to the poster!

--The “wider”, less detailed cars are typically style 2 cars made later by Gayla.
--Many of the bodies are very similar to those of Kirby, perhaps by commercial agreement, or otherwise? (Cobramite and Lancer had a similar agreement?).

--Missing style #122 does exist?

Refer to the poster row 1, starting from the left…

#100 first car shown is actually style 2, second shown is style 1, possibly Kirby #802.
#101 is poss Kirby #805
#102 fourth car is style 2, fifth car is style 1
#103 is style 2 of the Porsche #116 and is really a Porsche 917-K, next row first car is style 1 and is of the “short tail” version of the 917-K
#104 next two cars are labeled properly and note car 5 on bottom row is probably the same body. I have not been able to see any differences besides name on the price sheets….
#105 Bug poss Kirby 807
#106 LRW poss Kirby 813
#107 Firebird poss Kirby 804. There is also a style 2 of this car, very rare in original painted version.. 
#108 third row looks right
#109 BRM style notations are flopped
#110 Opel, not noticed a style 2 of this car but have seen distinctly different paint jobs. Earl? Cars are one color, later cars have multi-colors and stripes?
#111 Vega is as is
#112 fourth row on poster is actually style 2, there is a style 1 as well which is poss Kirby #821..
#113 very rare, poss Kirby #814
#114 has two versions, pictured is style 2 (bigger and blockier) where as style 1 has more detail:
#115 seems fine. (I have a large supply of clear bodies very similar in design but thicker material, not sure who made by but sold through Autoworld came along with my Lola and Bryant)
#116 is also a 917-K (Porsche made this v confusing) and poss Kirby 809 or 823
#117 and #118 are the only two styles I have seen with flames
#119 through #126 nothing to add, note #122 from link above

TT-1 is named this way because there was supposed to be at least a TT-2!!   
Same font type and size on the sticker, same wheels and same type of plastic material used for the trailer.

Hot Rods only small notes on these, HR-6 is poss Kirby 817 but note very small changes to the body: the clear ones I found and used for the founders cars do NOT have grooves at the front! The sidewalling is also different? The HR-8 is VERY rare in original packaging, my remakes are from that original mold.
