Tap Handle #517: Miller - MGD Bobby Rahal Indy Car

Tap size:  12.75"
Rarity:  Uncommon
Mounting:  standard 3/8" ferrule on 5/16" anchor bolt

After I picked up the MGD Rusty Wallace stock car in profile #408, I decided to acquire this companion tap in order to display them together. This Indy car uses the same color scheme as the stock car due to the fact that like the stock car, the Indy car is modeled after a real vehicle, which features MGD's sponsorship of both vehicles. And like the stock car, this is molded plastic with several decals applied, attached to a checkered base. The wheels do not turn. It's possible this was used at CART races in the 1980s or 1990s, which is when Bobby Rahal actually raced and won 3 CART championships. This is more rare than the stock car, although the Indy car appears on the secondary market occasionally. As a result, it costs considerably more than the stock car, on average.
