I collect Franklin Mint model cars that I used to own the real car of, but no longer have. The first picture is the Franklin Mint model. The second photo is the actual car back in 1979. I did a Google search on the VIN number of this car and found it for sale on Craigslist a few years back. It was still on the road after 37 years! There was a part of me that wanted to buy it back.

    Thanks funfairjoe777. Sorry for not responding earlier. Searched the Internet with the VIN number and found my old car for sale so many years later. It was like finding an old friend. At the time my 18 year old son was saying lets go get it! There was a part of me that would have liked to drive down and buy it back. It was owned by someone other than who I sold it to.
