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 wonder if the RLC status was shut off in preparation of us renewing our RLC accounts, and somehow was not able to turn "just" the RLC side and has disabled both RLC and HWC accounts. When I tried to get to the forums the screen said I had to be an HWC or RLC account holder to get to the forums. Just a thought.

If this was a planned shut down of the forums it would have been nice to get a heads up so we're not speculating for days what's going on. I try to keep up with the RLC news and I saw nothing.

Count me as one of the affected, been days now. I called CS today thinking it was just me, they had no answers for me... imagine that. Stumbled upon this thread by accident. So am I to understand some people do have access to the forums?

You must have got a CS person not informed of the problems or somthing. I call as well today and got a representative who knew of the forum sign in problems and that they were hoping to get it fixed soon. Whenever soon is. Still glad we have this as a makeshift forum 🙂

I thought about calling customer service but figured it would be a waste of time. I expected problems when they switched the forums, it just took longer to happen. Fooled me into thinking they actually pulled it off with no issues. Silly me!

According to the email I got some of our accounts were accidentally deactivated.

They are aware of it and trying to fix it.


Hope they do soon. Don’t want to miss out on sales or sign up .

 

Thank you for reaching out to us about your access to RLC forums. We are currently experiencing an issue where RLC memberships were deactivated in error which is preventing access to the forums. I'm sorry for the disappointment.

Our teams are aware of the issue and are working to correct it as soon as possible.

Please keep checking back for restored access. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding!

Kind Regards,

Yep me too.  No access to any forums. But I know of others who do have access. Good to know it's a site issue and not a banishment. It would have been nice if they would have sent us an alert to the problem. I mean they do have our Email addresses

This is the longest I've seen them have an issue. Unless these are the true new forums. Thanks Mattel, lol.
