Wail Tail - 04FE


The Wail Tale 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 935/78 racing car, nicknamed "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 (a sea creature, Moby Dick; the nickname of the Porsche), and tale (story, legend) to tail (the rear portion of the car). And thus "translating" 'Moby Dick' to 'Wail Tail'.


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