    Thanks Atomic! Glad you liked it.

    In the 1950s, the models were all so thin with skinny little arms. This one... well, I'm a bit suspicious. Maybe the art director did this as a gag. Glenn or Glenda is all I'm sayin.

    Gale - Ha, I was thinking the same thing:-O She also has a pair of mighty large feet.
  • Gaela Gardner 7y

    My friend Melissa used to have one of these and still regrets selling it.

    Ginger - I'm not sure your friend will ever be able to get over letting one of these go - they're pretty cool:-) Maybe down the road she'll be able to pick up another?

    A friend in Ohio has a 57 Nomad - a project child, that I think he'd be willing to let someone adopt real soon....

    Roberto - Sounds like your friend has run out of steam. How far along has he gotten? Has he had it for quite awhile? They're beautiful cars.

    The car hasn't been touched for 17 years. He owns several cars, a 70 Caddy Hearse and now a 30 foot motor home.

    Not only does that model have big feet, one of her legs looks like it melted against the car.
  • Vintage Roadside 7y

    Melsky - I think maybe she had a massive case of static cling going.
  • Megan Lloyd 7y

    her feet are placed very oddly. Photo is very crisp and great contrast though!
  • Vintage Roadside 7y

    meganelyslloyd - It almost looks like she's trying to push the car over or she's leaning against it heavily.

    What the!!! That is one ugly woman!!!!!

    silver1990chevy - She did have a unique look:-)
  • Benjamin Payan 6y

    Do you think her unique look helped with the sales?
  • buzzbuzz93 6y

    I think the huge feet also say man in a dress.

    Very smart colour scheme!! These cars were very nice, well built and very attractive. It is very difficult to own a real one here in England, so I have to make do with a die cast model!! Thank you for sharing your photo!! My Nomad is here:-
