Very impressive!

Still astonished the Lincoln Town Car is so much more coveted than most other models.

Mine is difficult to remember, exactly, but it was likely the whitish Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud because I liked the one used by the villains in The Chipmunk Adventure, although theirs was two-toned, with a pinkish-tan body and red trim:

Of course, mine didn't stay whitish for very long. A lot of rough play re-enacting the chase scene it was used in (using a Majorette police car to stand in for the Impala squad car) meant it quickly became one of my most chipped models. By the time I was in my teens, it, along with the Model A Ford Van (either the Pepsi or Rice Krispies version), was down to the base gray metal with virtually no paint on it.

And if it wasn't the Silver Cloud, it was the Cattle Truck (with yellow body and brown "wood" rear enclosure). That came to a bad end, too; the plastic "wood" parts quickly all broke off. Oh, I was so rough with my toys. :lol:
