  1. I'm going to attempt to models some TV sitcom cars from the 'fifties, beginning with the nice '40 Ford ragtop from Leave It to Beaver (Wally and Eddie chain Lumpy's car to a tree and extract the real axle) and the ratty Model A tub Bud Jr. drove before he got his '48 ragtop, from Father Knows Best. I'm putting them in the same diorama, for fun. Billy Gray replied to my inquiry as to the color of the hand-brushed flames on the A; gray! Also sent me two nice images of him with a '54 Merc ragtop (Jim Sr. drove a '54 sedan in the first season or two) and his flat-track racer. See below; I rolled up my jeans cuffs in that era, too! I was wondering if anyone else had done something similar to 'preserve' those old crocks in replica, or had any tips; after sixty years on-and-off playing with plastic kits, I've never tried a model scene. I'm trying to keep it very modest, btw; first effort at diorama, and weathering model cars at age 73 -1/2. Ever wonder what else those kid actors drove? Apparently Tony Dow had a Corvair Monza; still exists, and I recall Paul Petersen in what I think I recall as a Siata roadster (beautiful V-8 car; I've judged on at concours!), which may have been his -- but what else?? Bet it wasn't a tired '51 Ford club coupe, like I had, huh?! Any interest? Wick Humble
