All peg warmers are not created equal.
I found out with the City Connection race that the castings that are peg warmers here in Ohio are not necessarily the ones hanging on the wall in Michigan, Colorado, or California. It just depends on the stock a store has and which castings are popular (or not popular) in that town.
I thought it might be useful (and a bit of fun) to try and track the peg warmers around the country. I think it'd be neat to see where the overlaps are (call them the Universal Peg Warmer) and where there's a big difference. Maybe that castings you can't find in your town is all over the place in Terre Haute, who knows?!
What's a peg warmer? A peg warmer is any mainline casting that is always at the store, seemingly no matter when you go. It's the casting that no one is buying and thus just sits on the peg at the store.
I go the stores in my area maybe every other week or so to see which cars they have and most of the time it's the same ones. But even within that inventory, there's a clear pattern as to which cars are still selling (albeit slowly) and which aren't.
The next time you're at the store(s) where you usually buy your cars, take a mental note as to which castings are always there and not selling...then come here and share a quick note about it.
Maybe we'll find that 2 Jet Z is only a peg warmer in Ohio...or maybe it's a warmer everywhere!
