This is my latest project.  I started with a 61 Ford 2 door hardtop, and made a couple of minor alterations.

Makes me feel like I am watching a 1961 Ford Motor company commercial!
Nice work.

Bob, you gave me an idea, so I thought I'd play with it, and do an old type ad.

I checked through my collection of auto ads, and came up with this wording.

Nice job with that, Doug, especially the "ad." Where'd you find the figure?

A couple of minor alterations? You did more than that! I like seeing four-doors and wagons in scale, and yours came out very nicely.

Charlie, sorry it took me so long to get back to you, but I've had these figures for awhile, and couldn't remember except that they came from ebay.  I finally found the source.  It's ronald6386

 

  on ebay.   He has a lot of "common folk" figures.  Thanks everybody for the kind words on this one.
