Based on the plastic model kit from 1970 by car designer John Bogosian.
From the model description:
Here's the Li'l Yeller...the scholar hauler with a soul! AMT's solution to heir pollution is crammed full of educational goodies! Bored of education? Our Teeny-Bobber Teacher's Pest goes to the head of its class with elementary items as 'Think Tank' body design,--Brain Drain' radiator--'Grad-U-Eight' mill with 'Cum Louder' stereo exhaust--'Midnight Oil' pan--'Lunge Box' shifter--sheepskin upholstery--mind-bending vinyl tires (quad slicks out back and ground-grabbin' wide-tread weenies up front). It all adds up to the kit most likely to succeed, so don't drop out--close the generation gaps with Li'l Yeller! Ride on!
