This YELLOW La Cucaracha was recently on eBay and I wished that I could have bought it.

 

Does anyone here claim it or know who made it? It is made from resin and not polyurethane as the originals.

 

There is a great STORY here!

I'd say ask 1/24hemi via an eBay PM.. He was selling the pink Cuc, he was probably selling the yellow one also, but I don't recall.

If a chicken coop has 4 doors, does that make it a sedan?

Maybe the pink Cuc was made there too. 124hemi sells a lot of cars he built using parts from different sources. He's in Torrence, CA. Where are Mary & her husband located? This seller ID wasn't found on eBay.

If the pink one came from MaryJ, it was made by her husband. He is a talented guy and just sent me one of his resin Nichimo Manta Ray bodies and it is really nice.

Another resin body La Cucaracha recently on eBay. Went for some nice change though not being an original, but nice anyway 

 

Does anyone know who the genius is behind these clever reproductions?

Not sure he wants his name known, but he is a great craftsman. We do some trading from time to time. He doesn't do email much, mostly his wife does email sporadically. I usually deal with him thru the mail!

Is he duplicating the windshields, or buying them from somewhere?  Really a "thinge".

The La Cucaracha is definitely a thingie!
