Special Notes: No fastbacks were commercially made for the 1978 NAS event. This is a unique hot stamp on a unique color disc. Wham-O produced a fastback in the same color for the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind. That movie was released in 1977 so we hypothesize that someone grabbed a blank disc used for that promotion and stamped it with this unique color combination. It could have been a test run or someone could have just made it up. From the Charlie Burke collection
