Good one, David!  Thanks for the memories of those old, early Corgis!  While their models were, for their time, special, the figures brought them to life!  (And also into the popular eye!!)  Do people still remember the Hardy Boys?  I wonder if I  do . . .

Answer:  Nope.

I remember it - and turned my nose up at it. The original was already a great model.

The 1912 Rolls-Royce 40/50 HP Silver Ghost Barker Pullman was actioned for charity in 2007 by Gooding and Co.at Pebble Beach [but of course] for a cool 2.9 Million bucks. For decades it's affectionately been nicknamed, "The Corgi"
