He’s back! Danno Baker slipped back into the Winner’s Circle by extinguishing a lot of hot competition (yeah, right) in this group of pre-1970 police, fire, and ambulance emergency vehicles. His 1969 American LaFrance Century-Series open cab pumper was a modified AMT kit with scratchbuilt tools, accessories, and features. It replicated the first fire engine he served on as a firefighter.
Once again smoking past the huddled competitors to cop another Winners’ Circle appearance, Lanny Haas showed up and laid down a terrific old school rail dragster, complete with a trailer ride and period tow-vehicle. Outstanding, clean workmanship as always carried the day for this gem.
Welcome back [to the Winners’ Circle], Kotter!

Yes, Virginia, Cadillac did make race cars. And, Cadillac did race them at LeMans. When the club’s ‘Cadillacs’ theme came along, no one expected to see a Caddy racer on the table. Enter Bernie Kankiewicz with just such an off-the-beaten-path entry as an excellently executed circle-burner!
Smooth move, Bernie!
Not to be left out, Bernie Kankiewicz roared into the Winners’ Circle with a gorgeous little Midget racer to ‘sack’ everyone else. And, yes, it is . . . pink! Painstakingly constructed from the tiny parts of the recent Revell kit, it looked every bit the part . . . if your eyes were good enough to something that small! Yep, this roundy-rounder is 1/25th scale. It’s small because . . . well, they were midgets.
Great job, Bernie!
