considering how the gap has closed since the voting started and favored real, I think Harry is having fun with this one. Not sure what Mr. Obsessive sees, but if it is a model it is one of the better ones my eyes have seen!

I think it's a model for a couple of reasons.

It looks like Real to me. Tires look very realistic, and I didn't find any "typical" scale model-mistakes from it. Well, let's see on friday, what it really is...

There are so many subtle details that I never see from even the finest large-scale model builders that it's got to be real.

Either it's REAL or it's a REALLY good model! If it is a model, I'd like to shake the hand of the builder.

I vote REAL. The chrome around the wheel wells is nearly perfect, the thin white walls are perfect, the drivers' door is hanging a touch low out of alignment, the see through grille, the interior in the back seat area, the hub caps look real, the chrome trim around the windows and the front bumper looks real. But it could be a large 1/18th scale diecast model, or a real nice 1/24-1/25th scale diecast. I can be wrong again, have been many times before. Good one Harry. Bill and other guys see something that tells them this is a model but I can't see what they see. I haven't seen one of these cars in decades so I am not very familiar with the car. I still say REAL Maybe I need to flip that coin again. Patrick M

Looks like I fooled you with this one! :D

Final vote: 36 REAL, 25 MODEL. And it's a MODEL! A scratchbuilt 1/12 scale model, to be exact.

Ya Got me Harry! The steering wheel and windshield trim looked like it could be a model but then I noticed the headlights behind the grille and what appeared to be screws holding the wheel opening mouldings in place and went with real.

I guess my streak starts over again on November 21. That was a good one and I hope the next one is equally difficult.
