Hey, I'm just wakin' up! :lol:

Remember, I'm an hour behind Detroit... :lol:

Well, you guys were too smart on this one, it's REAL! Something about the car said "model" to me, but I guess most of you thought otherwise!

Next ROM coming MONDAY!

As I said before, to me it was easy.

The only model out there of a Caballero is an R & R resin that even Bill Geary or Juha Airio couldn't make look that good, and it's not the kind of subject one would expect a custom large-scale model of. My other method of research proved particularly easy as well :P

Still love the car...would love to build a model of it...I personally like the HT styling of the Caballero much better than the Nomad from the same era. But building an R & R requires a lot of R & R afterwards :(

To me the strong reflection on the metallic red paint gave it away. Having it been a model, the reflection would have been different.

Thanks,
