Went into TJMess, as my wife calls it. Found a bunch of M2s...not much of a price break, so I thumbed through looking for maybe any chase cars when I found this:

I himmed and hawed, and put it back...

And picked it up again...sheesh, full retail for these things can get out of hand in a hurry...no, better put it back.

That "barn find" look is just so...nasty, unless you've already got some good looking ones around. SIGH.

But you know, I never thought anybody would *ever* get around to doing a 57 DODGE, those tailfins are really intricate and hard to get right with the tooling.

OK, you talked me into it (I said to myself)! <Yeah, I know, closet schizo>

So, ugly as it may be, this 57 Dodge that I never thought would ever make it into production followed me home. Kudos to M2, you guys just gained big brownie points with me!

Now, are there any good looking versions of this casting out there? PS, a Highway Patrol version is in order! (channelling my inner Broderick Crawford...)

There are! Three earlier releases before the 'Project' barn-find.

First edition was this red and white

Second, was a beautiful black and white, which is my favorite so far. I must have used it
for something and didn't put it away, as the parking spot for it, between the others, is empty....


Third, this black and pale yellow, which is my least favorite...
