Really looking forward to this model.I thought I had a pretty good knowledge of old American iron.
Talked to an old timer a year or so ago,and he told me all about this car that he bought new,a Turnpike Cruiser.I had never heard of any such thing,and when I went home and googled it,I was pretta blown away by what I saw.
Dont know how I missed this one.The car is a perfect example of how cars were once kind of designed to the times.Meaning,that when this car came out,the news was full of stories of sattelites and rockets and new fangled jet airplanes.
Its reflected in the lines of the car.Long sweeping pointy rocket like body accents,angular jet wing type accents,etc.And like many of the other cars of those days,it was just insanely huge.
Definetly one of the greats from the "golden age"of American automobiles.
Now I hope I can find one or two of these in the stores.
