    Those heads definitely have a 70's look to them!

    That's so cool that the OP had those and that they are reunited with the car now, a tip of the hat to Eddragster!

    Freakin awesome! Heads remind me of school football mascots and the paper mache' dummy head in the Alcatraz escape.
    The stars sure lined up on this one!

    I'd put it on my head and walk around on Halloween. If you ever display the 57 at a show, have some real fun; sit in the car, wearing the head and a long sleeve shirt, then grab people when they get close.

    Check out the instruction sheet from the model kit. His name is Harold Ferndoc from Burbank

    Those are even better. Looks like the head in the '57 was wearing giant John Lennon type glasses at one time? Or maybe that was just on the box artwork. Still, so cool that these are back with the car.

    Man, those things are so cool, in a creepy kind of way. Why do I expect to see Rod Serling standing in the background with a Winston dangling...:eek:

    I thought something looked familiar..... box art was drawn by the great Dave Bell! I should've picked up on it from the pic of the 57 in the show, Good Boot on the front tire, one of Bell's signature changes. No wonder the heads also have a familiar look, a lot of Dave's drawings have the big noses!

    Got my Dave's mixed up I guess! Which one did the cartoons for Street Rodder, Deal, Bell, or both?
