Is it as HOT where you are, as it is here ? In wet, Foggy England we have just had :-
The hottest June since 1976
Yesterday, 88 degrees - we are further North than Maine but it was 4 degrees hotter than Miami !
At least we are not in South West France which just got hit with 99mph winds and 7 inches of rain in 24 hours.
Well, something just persuaded the UK government to invest $10 billion in 3 offshore "Wind Farms" to supply "Clean" Electricity to 4 million Households
Ford 100th Anniversary
Apart from the Matchbox 1:43 1955 model I mentioned in N/L21, MiniChamps (aka Paul's Model Art) have released an open top 1955 for the 100th Anniversary Celebration of Ford, very nice moulding and detailing, but I think the radio Antenna is a bit on the long side? It's at least twice the height of the windscreen.
This is the same MiniChamps who released the 1:43 2002 T-Bird in the James Bond Collection.
I have posted an interesting Field Report by my "roving Reporter" of the
actual Celebrations http://www.tbirduk.com/field/ford_100.htm
Many Thanks to Steve (and Family)
And Finally, a bit of a teaser !
Is there a second version of the Matchbox 1:43 "Coke Billboard" car on the way ? The one released in 2001 was pale Green (not really Seafoam in my opinion) http://www.tbirduk.com/HTML/mb-dyCoke_2001.asp
However if you go to
and put thunderbird in the Search Box
....... It sure looks like a new color (black?) and logo to me ?
