A New Car!
This is my newest toy! A 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air in a beautiful turquoise blue. It's 1:12 scale and came from the Danbury Mint. I haven't had the courage to try putting the top up yet - I'm so afraid I'll break it! I'll take some better pictures in a day or two, in the daylight, but here I'm trying to show off the lights that actually work. The headlights switch from high to low beams with a dimmer switch on the floor. Pressing the brake pedal turns on the brake lights - what a concept! :-)
