Wail Tail - 04FE


The Wail Tail is a car featured in the Crooze series. It was in production for 2004 only and has never been used again. This car is based on the 1978 Porsche 935 racing car. Due to the rules of Group 5 racing of the time period, Porsche was allowed to give it an extended rear clip that stretched past the rear wheels. With the car's original white paintjob and the stretched rear portion, the 935 earned the nickname of "Moby Dick".

Keeping with Mattel's witty sense of humor for naming these models, it was named the Wail Tale. The name is a play-on-words of Wail (yelling) to whale (sea creature, Moby Dick), and Tale (story, legend) to tail (the rear portion of the car).


The Wail Tale has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
