One of the many diecast models in my collection. The 1940 Ford Deluxe Coupe is a classic car that is very popular and one of the last of the great prewar cars made by Ford.

Enjoy, Mario!

If you squint your eyes just a bit, it looks real. The quality of some of these die casts are amazing. The 1940 Ford will forever be most peoples favorite Ford from the 1940's. It sure is my favorite that Ford had to offer for that decade. They just nailed it in every way that year. Beautiful design.

Yes George the diecast models today are incredibly detailed and as you say look very real. The 1940 Ford is an Icon and one of my favorite Fords as well. I'm mostly a Chevy and GM guy, I love Pontiacs but there are some Fords I like also. And the 40 Ford is one of them. All the diecast models I have were patiently thought out and I am very proud of them. Thank you for your comments. Cheers!

Were you ever a kid, okay that was dumb.

Start over. Do you remember when you were a kid, I would buy and build models and there were those days when I wish I could shrink myself down and get into those model cars AND planes.

When that movie: HONEY I SHRUNK THE KIDS came out, I went to see what the secret was to shrinking.

Another time in life I was lied to. ;-(

These models are so detailed, with gauges and engines, like George said, if you squint you can darn near think they are real.

Better keep the keys to those cars out of the hands of kids Mario. You never know when a shrunken one is going to take your model for a ride.

Yes as a kid I did try shrinking myself down in my head anyway to the scale of the model cars I was building. It was fun pretending to drive them around on the floor. That movie was hilarious and I'll have to watch out for any shrunken kids trying to steal my diecast cars! I'll have to post some shrunken guard dogs in my cabinet!

I like how those tail lights were called Sergeant Tail Lights as they resemble the military Sergeant Stripes. Cool beans!!!!

I was always intrigued by those sargent stripe taillights which is why my goal years later was to be a sargent in the service. Happily I did. Cheers!
