Eer, I decided its not a car to drive. Its one to look at, and call George (after loving and petting it, of course). The mod was to stick it on a shelf out of the way, and get a completely different car parked in its place. I am not helping much. am I. Going away.

I think the most important thing is to enjoy it. Looking forward to seeing it in due course.

Shell looking better, but how did it get from red to blue with white double pin stripe thinned out by rubbing?

Still curious as to the genesis of the partially rubbed out appearing, thin double white pinstripe.

Reflection, where the body has a crease line?

A Bamby, like an aging woman, needs make up to find a wealthy partner. Take care against apparently shiny small cars. They are after your wallet!

Make up was pretty bad to be honest and my wallet is not impressive but my skill will make it a "nice " driver
