Pop Culture Carvana - Results Posted
Figured out my ride! Thunderhawk from M.A.S.K. A modified 80s Trans AM.
Hey Rubber -ToW,
I know this race is full and i expect eeryone will show but can I be placed on the alternate roster just in case a spot opens.
- I keep the alternate roster to 6 names. If I need more than 6, I build raffle cars for an open driver call. — Kaiju_Colorado

Guess I can publicly reveal mine since it's in the mail. Best of luck, can't wait to throw down with the rest of you!!
It's about that time again! Only two more weeks to get your Pop Culture Carvana into the mail. The roster is updated on Redline Derby to show which cars I have received already: Pop Culture Carvana Roster
First up, Flip from Flip's Racing in South Carolina has checked-in and passed inspection for the Pop Culture Carvana diecast racing tournament! Flip is sponsoring K.I.T.T. from the '80's television series known as Knight Rider. K.I.T.T. is a black 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. Let's hope the defense measures equipped in the Knight Industries Three Thousand can keep those nasty Kaiju away.
R-Lo from R-Lo racing in Connecticut, USA has checked-in and passed inspection for the Pop Culture Carvana diecast racing tournament!
R-Lo will be sponsoring Dirty Mike and the Boys in this red Toyota Prius hybrid from the 2010 movie called The Other Guys. Let's that this soup kitchen doesn't see any action other than crossing the finish line.
- Haha. Love that movie. As long as he remembers to yell "America" as he floors it, it should do well :) And of course he has to be playing LRB while doing so — Chaos_Canyon
The Crazy Canuck from the White Nuckle Motoring Speed Shop in Canada has checked-in and passed inspection for the Pop Culture Carvana diecast racing tournament!
The Crazy Canuck is sponsoring the red 2003 Mini Cooper S from the 2003 movie known as the Italian Job. Sources have told us that Stella Bridger herself may actually be driving this Mini in the tournament, but we have had no official comment from The Eh Team in this matter. So let's hope there is a devil inside this little monster!
Fractal Panda from Fractal Panda Diecast Racing in the UK has checked-in and passed inspection for the Pop Culture Carvana diecast racing tournament!
Fractal Panda is sponsoring the white Lotus Esprit S1 from the 1977 movie known as The Spy Who Loved Me. Let's hope we find that Polaris submarine because the Rim sure could use 16 nuclear warheads to help fight off the Kaiju!
Bob Loblaw from the Chaos Canyon legal team in New Zealand has checked-in and passed inspection for the Pop Culture Carvana diecast racing tournament!
Bob Loblaw will be sponsoring the yellow 1971 Ford Mustang Sportsroof known as Eleanor from the 1974 movie called Gone in 60 Seconds. Bob is the world's best diecast attorney, because he robs from the rich and gives to the needy!
- If bob has any trouble during this race, he just needs to pull into a car wash and swap it for a ‘clean’ model ;) if you know, you know — Chaos_Canyon
Sam Haul from DRT3K in Oregon, USA has checked-in and passed inspection for the Pop Culture Carvana diecast racing tournament!
Sam Haul will be sponsoring the Panther DeVille which was used in Disney's live-action movies known as 101 Dalmations (1996), 102 Dalmations (2000), and Cruella (2021) as Cruella de Vil's car. Now we are not sure how the interior looks (yet), but the Jaguar powered suspension, power steering, and automatic transmission are really beefy and we expect great results from this car.
ep from epVideos in Colorado, USA has checked-in and passed inspection for the Pop Culture Carvana diecast racing tournament!
ep will be sponsoring the yellow 2010 Chevy Camaro known as Bumblebee that first appeared in the 2007 movie called Transformers. You're probably thinking, "how can a 2010 model year car appear in a 2007 film?"
POP CULTURE FUN FACT: Chevrolet had to build a one-off running concept for the movie before the final version went on sale a couple years later. The vehicle used body panels made from the same molds that were used for the 2006 Camaro Concept, which was on the auto show circuit the year before. The body was fit to a chassis of a Holden Monaro to make it capable of performing in the film. Its starring role in Transformers helped cement the fifth-generation Camaro as one of the coolest cars to come on the market in the following years.
May not make the show, since it is an alternate, but here is the Hardee's Road Runner Camaro (on a Firebird chassis--Ertl was a weird company). It starred in a bunch of promotions and advertisements without ever being a "real" race car (to my knowledge).
Figured my ride out! Thunderhawk from M.A.S.K..
