    Robert, use Pledge with Future as a clear coat. Some people even mix it in the paint. It will also protect the paint. Heres an example:

    Ford blue is not a myth. There are 2 Ford blue used in the 60's. The following link will help to define the difference. And yes, as the owner of a full size 1966 full size Mercury S55 vert and someone who grew up in the northwest berbs of Motown with dads of friends and neighbors who were  middle to high ranking Ford personnel, I know what I'm talking about.

    I had most of the usual toys that boys had from 1950 thru the mid 1950's. Tinker Toys, Lincoln Logs and so forth. The car ones, besides promos, where the F & F plastic cars that came in Post cereal  boxes. But the one I most remember was the Mattel fix it kit toy car like this one, only mine was red and blue.

    B J Pollard 1:1 car collector and man responsible for the saving of many brass era and pre ww 11 automobiles
    I knew of B J Pollard and his collection in the early to mid 1950's. The closest I ever got to the man was when I delivered his morning Detroit Free Press and placed it inside his storm door. He Paid the paper directly, so I never had the honor of meeting him. He would drive an old fire truck around the small village we lived in located in the northwest burbs of Detroit. I do remember that his daughter lived on the south east corner of the block behind me and. one day, while riding my bike, there was a a beautiful Duesenberg Towncar parked on the side of her house. The references have listed below contain much info on this collection and who he was. If you open them, read them through to the end as they contain pictures of how he stored the cars and his spat with Henry Ford.

    I printed a girl like this. The only thing is, I can't post up a picture because the only thing she's wearing are the high heals. She's 1/25 scale too and the detail is
