How many different kits were made? I have the tank kit, and remember a Z-28, VW bug, Nomad...........but there must have been others?

I recall a Z-28, a VW bus, a VW dune buggy with tank turret, a VW Beetle, and some kind of airplane (the Fokker Funfdecker?).
You might post your question here; the Show Rod Rallye guys know all this stuff:

DEAL'S WHEELS Introducing a new kind of model designed by Dave Deal. Dave groves on cars. He builds and races them...he draws cartoons of them, and now he designs models of his favoite far out vehicles. Dave made DEAL'S WHEELS ever farther out...with fat tires and funky little hip drivers and spaced out body designs. What we do is mold them in nifty colors so you don't have to paint them. All you have to do is enjoy building tand looking at them and rolling them around.
