    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 1977. I did a Google search on the VIN number of this car and found it for sale on the internet a few years back. It was still on the road after 36 years!

      I see it in the background. It's not real clear though. Is it a black 1977? Have you had it a long time?

      Yes it's 77 Black and Gold edition, Bought it in 1979 or 80, not sure if the later part of the year or first part of 80

      I only had mine for a couple of years. Bought it new and then sold it for something else. I really did find it on the Internet 36 years later searching the VIN number. It was like finding an old friend! I have found several of my old cars doing that. Only works when the VIN is included in the ad description. I must have too much time on my hands!

      I know the feeling, The one I regret letting go was a 69 Judge GTO, I brought it back where I live now after getting out of the USMC and also had 67 Vette, had to make a choice back then as which to keep, in hind-sight should have kept the Goat

      I remember when this model came over to England , we would all get on our bikes and go to local gm dealer in Manchester , on display was this model , a Cadillac Fleetwood , a corvette 78 pace car and a two tone Chevy caprice classic in silver and black , on seeing these cars my love for american cars began .
