Get the Power of American Steel at Walmart!

By Gary Barnum

 

 

The first mass-produced cars in America began to roll out of Detroit right about the turn of the century (1900, not 2000). But it appears the automobile production really accelerated in the mid-century with heavy-duty steel vehicles. Today, estimates put the number of cars produced in Michigan close to two million! We pay homage to some of the many classics with our American Steel series at Walmart.

 

These editions really highlight some of the muscle behind American Steel, and it seems like everyone has a favorite or, most likely, favorites. If you’re strong enough, you can pull these favorites out of your local Walmart beginning in December.

I can't get into forums either. And I notice that when I click on my name to get to my page it says members spectraflame. Instead of the normal rlc-member. My account page says rlc member.  What's up with the members spectra flame. Never seen that. Glad the forum thing isn't just me

It's possible their systems are slowly converting all memberships to non-RLC (?). The terms of membership is for calendar year only, so now that we're in a new calendar year, no one should be an RLC member until they open up the new memberships. This was my first year as RLC, and I was wondering what happens between the new year and Feb, but figured I'd try it and see what happens.

 

I guess this is what happens? So no new RLC cars for sale until they open up memberships again?

No. Memberships go on until they announce they are finished. They always sell the super set and factory set in Jan. And they already announced two cars pushed back until Jan. One year membership went till February.

It look like news feeds are the only place where we can talk now. I haven't been able to get into the forums since last night.

 lost access around 7:30 yeasterday morning, still cant access then today. I received a PM message from another member,saying his account has been changed from the usual red line statice to spectra flame, with zero post history..., but I have had chrome pop up on mine before, so I dont think it is anything to worry about..

I think it is just a new year issue they need to repair. because sales are not finished for 2019 members yet. TAZ
