Flickr does provide the appropriate code to copy and paste into the forum. I don't use it and can't remember the exact procedure off the top of my head, but other members do. Hopefully someone can pipe up.

Some great Fords, if they do the '69 XL with blue stripes i won't be able to contain myself.
My fave is the '69 pickup.

Here is the code I used, just place this between the Image tag so I couyld show you how it will look.

The 1957 Ranchero looks great.

I had doubts about buying one, but now after looking at your photos, I'm certain I want one! :)

Interesting Foulcon ;) there. Did not realise they were making them anywhere other than Australia by the 70's.

Yes, Ford made a Falcon in Argentina until 1991 (seven generations) that was much closer to the original Falcon than the Aussie cousin.

Hi IFHP

Don't often see a Milestone Miniature! Plus there ain't many model cars made in South Africa. What a wonderful find for you mate. :D

Chris, this isn't a Milestone Miniature. It really is just "MM" made in Argentina. I'll post a seperate thread for a discussion of this model and is maker.

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=6881

BTW, I did see a Milestone Miniature 1961 Falcon on ebay recently. I was interested, but it sold for north of $100. My enthusisum was curb a bit when I realized that is was a US spec, not a South African spec car.

Circa 1995 Ford Crown Victoria Interceptor by Hongwell by IFHP97, on Flickr

1995 Ford Crown Victoria Interceptor (California Highway Patrol). My first Hongwell model. A nice looking toy. It seems to be a little smaller all around than the IXO Crown Vic.

I really like the looks of this 1979-80 Ford F-100 by Premium X and I also really want to add one of those 1914 Ford Model T to my collection 8-)

1964 Ford Thunderbird by Universal Hobbies by IFHP97, on Flickr

1:43 Ford Woody Comparison by IFHP97, on Flickr

1940 by Minichamps, 1935 by Rex Toy, 1940 by Ertl. The Minichamps has the best detail but is too small. The Rex Toy is probably about right for scale. The Ertl is a cheap model which looks best from behind, all charm is lost when viewed from the front.

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Bond models are indeed nice for the money. About the 1965 tail lights, I'm not expert about this car but watched some youtube videos. If the tail lights and yearmodels are correct in these two vids, the models tail lights look more similar to the 1964 Thunderbird, only that the decoration peace is missing in the taillights.
1964 Thunderbird:

1965 Thunderbird:

By the way, did '65 Thunderbird really have this really cool turnsignal feature in the tail lights or is it some aftermarket gadget? :)

Yes, they are OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer). FYI- Sequential tail lights were also used in mid 60s Mercury Cougars.

Have you got the Minichamps version for comparison as I they did the Gulf Concept too. In the Press Kit for the launch of 1:1 Ford New GT40 gave away a metal wheel centre 'spinner' which made a helluva paper weight.

I have Ian, but in the orange with blue stripes. It's on the first page
Interesting give away for a press kit. Designed to stretch the arms perhaps for those who had to carry them around
