    Can't do that with many. The 57 Tbirds are very different. Testarossas and BMW 850i-s would make good comparisons to show subtle differences. Mustangs are very different. The Corgi Porsches are very different from anything Matty developed in-house. The Jeep is very different. Mercedes SL might make another comparison. Most of the rest off the top of my head have no counterpart...the Corgis are it.
    The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

    Thank you for your understanding.

      When Mattel took over Corgi they used a lot of Corgi's castings like this Mercedes-Benz 190, the golden one and the left taxi are HotWheels, the others Corgi

        I have the green Vette, but never knew it had anything to do with Corgi...
        I knew the 57 T-Bird with the button on the bottom to open the hood was an old Corgi casting, but that's all I knew of...

          The age of the Corgi efforts really show how badly some new/accurate cars are needed by M2/Auto World/Greenlight.

            well I don't think the guy is talking to anyone as it don't look like he pressed the button on the CB Mike

            pretty cool
            I likes the Corgi/Hot Wheels lineup

              I really like that T-Bird....I hope I have it seems familiar enough (but it could be a MotorMax? or Zee? casting I'm thinking of) and I'm sure I would have bought any T-Bird in 3-inch I saw.
