Sixty years ago, 1959, I was five years old and spending the summer at my Grandma's house where I found a die-cast model in the attic. Grandma said my Dad had bought it about ten years before, right before he went to Japan in the Air Force. She said he had wanted to buy the real thing but settled for a model at that time. I didn't know what kind of car it was then but I knew I wanted one someday.That thing is adorable!
What prompted the purchase, Dave?
