You Just Can't Beat a Really Nice F.H.C.

I bought this Fixed Head Coupé Silver Shadow back in August and never told my wife.
It's been stashed in the cupboard since then but I took it out today while she was away.



It cost me just $249.00. 
Yes $249, not $24,900. 


She'd still kill me for spending 'Cole Haan' shoe money on a model car, though.
It's one of a run of 5,000 1:18th scale models by Paragon.



If you can find one, buy it.


Incredibly well detailed. Really nice.
And heavy.


Far better than that old Bburago Camargue model I bought 35 years ago.


Which I still love, by the way.

Now, if only Paragon could do a flared arch, rubber bumper, four door Silver Shadow in Cardinal Red...

Please don't tell my wife.
