Was cleaning albums tonight and realized I have a unique copy of this variation. The runout on side A is 6E-135 - A6, but on the inner ring of the runout it reads "R 144 33A" but it is scratched out by the etcher (RTB). Interesting flaw.

I just love the front cover of this album, the lady looks so happy. I sometimes wonder what it is that she has seen, that has made her so happy. Maybe it is an adorable kitten playing with a ball of wool? Or a funny clown? I don’t know. If ever I need cheering up (if I have got into trouble or there has been a bereavement) I will look at this album cover. It never fails to put a smile on my face!! P.S. The music is good too, The Cars are one of my favourites!!

This is Natalya Medvedeva, a wife of Russian writer Eduard Limonov. She was a model and singer in 70-80's. Died in Moscow about 15 years ago.

From Wiki:
"Unlike many of the Cars' album covers, the cover for The Cars was designed by the record company, rather than drummer David Robinson.
The cover was not well liked by the members of the band, however.
Robinson said, "I thought that when the Elektra came out it was way too slick. The pictures of us I didn't like."
Guitarist Elliot Easton expressed dislike for "that big grinning face," saying, "Man, I got tired of that cover."

The cover model was Natalya Medvedeva, a Russian-born model, singer, writer, and journalist.

I have a copy of this record with 6E-135-A-6-SP and R-144033-1 scratched out in the runout on side one and 6E-135-A6 etched instead. Anyone else have this on their album?

Looks like you have an RCA club edition reissue, indicated by the number preceded by an R.
