  • Dale Jr Auto Elite Windshield

    Will all 2017 AUTO ELITE Standard/Non-Raced diecast have the windshield without the black banner? I just noticed this on the NW Childrens and Darlington cars.

    I'd assume a homestead Raced Version would indeed have a black banner... hopefully.

    I think Lionel said they're all gonna be like that. Not sure if that would change with cars not yet solicited. Probably depends on whether they already have their contracted windshield allotment signed, but I had thought they also said he had signed all they had contracted with him to sign, I could be wrong though.

      Yes not sure why, but for some reason Lionel made the decision to go forward with using the clear windshields for all the Jr Auto's.

          Looks crappy in my opinion, the glue and fitting is all visible.

              It does look awful. Wanted to buy Jr.'s throwback Auto Elite from someone but couldn't pull the trigger because of how bad it looked

                  While it doesn't look at good as a normal windshield I am still fine with it because it still has dale jrs autograph on it

                      I still don't understand why they left the black borders off. I understand no monster markings, but diecasts have been made with just black borders since the 90's. Shouldn't have been that hard to pull off.

                        I agree, the windshields this year REALLY bug me!

                        I get the early releases where there was a lot of uncertainty, but these later releases SHOULD have black boarders!

                        Oh well, it is what it is!
