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!  :-)
