One thing that most web Browsers ("clickers") may not realise is that when they use a Search engine on the Web their "search String" is recorded and reported on, officially this is to enable Site Owners to fine tune their pages to ensure the browser finds the information they are looking for.
In reality it provides us with a weekly dose of amusement as we "watch" the antics of the "great Illiterati" struggle to get their fingers to hit the keyboard in sync.

has been repackaged
and distributed, by Testors this time, major difference from the Novelty
Inc. kit is that the Spare wheel cover is now the same colour as the body. Found

Has the 1966 been done as well?
Lone Star 1955 Thunderbird
DCMT Lone Star Ford Thunderbird
I spotted this one and put a "placeholder" bid in, and then forgot!
I do already have the colour but mine has the white on red wheels, so I was not heartbroken, but I did expect to see a few more familiar names in the Bidding.

It appears the mysterious
BT Jupiter models 1960 model
produced by SMTS and then distributed by Belgian Trucks was available as a Kit
as well as Ready made.
