I've been cleaning up my MPC cars and boxes, and the memories are great. I've even bought a couple new MPC cars, and am looking for a few sets. I really like the MPC-era. That was my time. Been going through the old catalogs as well.
A lot of the "higher end" cars from the MPC era look better than the current Menards cars, and don't have some of the truck problems the Menards cars have.
