Yes, you did. Those models that are "luck-out" deals are often more special to us, than the ones for which we paid a bundle.
Yes, I couldn't agree with you more. On top of that, this one is special anyway. Although it was the convertible that I got for my 7th birthday in 1967, I wanted the hardtop even worse. I have both the hardtop and convertible models of the '67 Galaxie. The '67 Ford Galaxie is the first model I ever laid eyes on, and is what got it all started for me building models, as well as peaked my interest even more into the 1:1 cars. These are the ones that you would have to pry out of my cold hands when the time comes! I'll never get rid of 'em. They're with me for the duration!
In addition, I have all three of these '67 Galaxies under construction right now.I finally decided to get them built, and put into my display case. I'm gonna like that.
