1982 Hare Splitter

Only once has it ever happened that someone has given me their entire childhood collection – not that I would discourage it from happening again! My friend, Big A, kept his hot wheels in a Race Case almost identical to mine. A few years younger than me, his collection is a nice selection of mostly blackwalls from the early 80s. My favorite is this Hare Splitter, a German round-headlight version of the 1974 VW Rabbit. The original 1979 casting is identical with the exception of a red tire rack; the other version from 1982 was yellow. I’d like to put this car up against my childhood Ford Escort RS2000. Which do you think would win?
