Should I Spend Donuts on Poppa Wheelie’s and Ramrod?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The booze is out of Springfield!  It’s a battle of Homer vs. the 18th Amendment, with whiskey on the line…or just that wonderful Duff.  So grab those sprinkles because the store is packed with boozey inspired items to fill your Springfield with!

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Poppa Wheelie’s and Ramrod to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this biker combo…

Character: Ramrod
Poppa Wheelie’s
Donut Cost: 
150 Donuts
Consumerism +20

Leaves stores March 21st

-Comes with a questline
-Will Help earn event currency (drinks)
-Uses Poppa Wheelie’s for multiple tasks
-Poppa Wheelie’s is animated when in use

-Not voiced
-Animations are lackluster

Final Thought
An ok pick up.  He’s not the highest on my buy list…I’d say Meathook is a better buy for the animations alone…but it’s still not a bad buy.  If you like him get him, otherwise pass.

I’d pass on this one. It’s the lesser of the two new premium character combos.  If you really want a new character from this event, buy Meathook and pass on Ramrod.

Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as I premium player, I already picked him up.   But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).  Also, this is one of those items that will help you earn more currency…so the earlier you pick it up the more beneficial it is to you.  So try to make your final decision before this weekend…so that it’ll help you the most.

Here’s a look at his tasks…

    Seen this in patrics town and think I missed out big time, one I will get if it comes around again 😖

  2. Poppa Wheelie’s and Ramrod – yeah I think Meathook is a better presentation from EA (still waiting on that Greaser’s Cafe, though), so will wait for that Discount next time 🤔

  3. Talk about lazy. Poppa Wheelie name was stolen from American Dad

    • Joey Joe Joe Junior Shabbado

      Stolen from or stolen by? The Simpsons episode in which the bar appeared was released six years before American Dad existed.

      • You tell’em Joey Joe Joe Junior Shabbado (Moe: “That’s the worst name I ever heard!”)

      • You’re absolutely correct Joey Joe Joe Junior Shabbado. I’m shocked to find “Take my wife, sleaze” was not even from this century. Thanks, I sit corrected.

  4. I picked him up with Meathook and combined them with the car impound lot (free with an expensive purchase of donuts) and one of the gas stations to create a cool biker bar area. Probably the most exciting thing I’ve had going in a couple of years. SIGH I’ve been at this way too long.

  5. Are the rufians 3 seperate characters or just an npc.thanks for the help.

  6. Missed the opportunity to include Cheech and Chong -_- maybe some day

  7. *Can make donuts anymore in the Rail Road Yard, message is unlocked all prizes this week…like it use to be 🙁

  8. After update things are messed up, giant tree is gone, old missions are back, character select button does not work, I have to click all my buildings separately, pieman mission is back, what happend EA. Already reinstalled but that didn’t do anything.
    Anyone else have this problem?

    • You need to call EA as soon as possible and ask them to roll your game back to the last time your game was normal. This glitch will not fix itself and you will lose all your progress since it started. The longer you wait to contact them, the more you will lose. (Ask for a couple donuts for your trouble, they’re usually pretty accomodating).

    • Pyanfar the Hani

      Me too. Someone else also reported the same symptoms on the post immediately before this one. Did you happen to get anything from the St. Patrick’s mystery box? And do you now have a Gil deal for Lisa Lizard Queen?

      • I didn’t get anything from the St. Patrick’s mystery box, but I did get a gill deal for something, can’t remember what..
        EA did a roll back, I now have to start the St.Patrick update again.
