    Great comment and attitude..really.
    This is a neat place to go and look, listen, and learn....
    But about these toy cars[:0] ,er... scale collectibles [|)]..
    In the real world, those that 'can' probably already 'have' and rarely need to come onto a forum to talk about it.
    So what is the big deal anyways?
    If historical accuracy were the only criteria, 85% of our 1:1 Studes would not pass muster.
    So picking apart toys seems a bit childish...
    (Sort of like my slowly but surely destroying my factory promo 1:24 AMT '65 Mustang, ultimately killing it by having a scale engine fire that could not be put out by the scale fire engine[}])
    Best part of this thread is seeing Bob's nifty warning poster[]
    (and his superb pun)

    Perhaps Studebaker owners don't pay top dollar for models because they don't have the financial capacity to pay??? I know that if I had place to put a real car I'd like to have the best I could afford, with a body off restoration, and updated brakes and seat belts, however reality sets in, so I derive much joy from the delightful folks and their beautiful vehicles that I see on this forum.

    I have some models which I enjoy, but I don't imagine paying $US300 or more for one, good luck to you if you can.
    In any case, it'd be nice if you could supply links to the models you mention such as Bruce Arnold and stop sniping about Gary's comments, so he got it wrong we're not all perfect and the information you supplied has informed us greatly.
