    Can anyone confirm this is an actual prototype. I know it’s got a sticker on the bottom but anyone can make one of these.

      That's interesting. I would ask Thomas if Lionel ever had a proto come this way. Also that PO number would describe that car. What is the back story on the car?

        Probably Mr. Excitements most popular ride, Smok'n Joes,
        Camel was a promo for Camel Ciggs 1997.
        Hut Stricklin drove it first for Junior Johnson in 1994

            Didn’t this end in the early 2000s, which is why RJ Reynolds had to leave, because of the government?

              That's the government also being intrusive/obtrusive in everybody's lives, and getting their hands into everything, which they belong in to begin with. lol.
