I recently found this Limited Edition Brooklin 1956 Ford Thunderbird from Miniature Cars USA in a storage box. I like this color better on this '56 T-Bird because it reminds me of one of my favorite car type movies ("American Graffiti"). I can picture Suzanne Somers cruising around in this '56 T-Bird with Richard Dreyfuss trying to meet her.
I like that white one, too. I heard Suzanne Sommers tell a cool story about American Graffiti. She was so broke before she got that part that she had to pay the toll to cross the Golden Gate bridge on the way to the audition by bartering a barely used lipstick with the toll attendant. Such a humble beginning for Lucas' iconic mystery blonde bombshell in the classic white T-bird.
I think that one of the best shots in the movie is the overhead view of the T-bird on the highway. Thanks for posting the photo; I'll be looking for that white Brooklin.
And this is the final 1/43 die cast '56 T-Bird I can add to the forum. I got it just a couple of years ago and it too is a $2 model. The maker is New Ray. Certainly a lot better than the $2 Zee toy from 20 years ago.
