I would think so. One of the pages I saw this photo on where I got it from said there were some Twister Special Rancheros in there, of which they only made 4 of.

lol @ robot9000

Actually don't think that is fan drive...It's a fan-like contraption to chop up all the bugs that overfly and miss hitting the windshield. I believe they called it a insect-fragmentifacationer. Tongue
