Sam Bergman jumped into the slot racing fray by producing the first true 1/24 scale RTR car in the business, a John Power designed car named the “Manta Ray” and loosely patterned after the Dean Jeffries show car. The car was immensely successful with the younger crowd, with a production of over one million units. Classic later produced the wildest looking slot cars of all times, all of them highly collectible today as well as their colorful packaging.
