Racing Champions Numbered Series

Racing Champions is, by far, my favorite Diecast company. Most of the street cars they issued were in numbered series. This album documents which cars are numbered what in each series.
Mint/Motor Trend was the first series, run from 1996-1999.
Hot Rod was the second series, run from 1997-99.
Police came next, but I don't know when it started.
Fire & Rescue and Lowrider both started fairly late in the 1990s- 1999 itself is possible. They both got into the 20s in numbers, and Lowrider continued on without numbers for an unknown time.
Classified Classics ran in 2000, and 50 Fastest Muscle Cars (really, 50 fastest toolings RC had!) ran in 2001. It was the last time many of the toolings were seen, although some appeared in the Kmart exclusive Route 66 line, and some have shown up rebadged as Johnny Lightnings.
There was also a Hot Rod Magazine 50th Anniversary set, a Hot Rod Magazine Cover Cars set, and a Target promo set.
