Have no illusions; save for the upgrade to chrome metal foiled badgings, this is the same old-world tooling that FM presented to an adoring diecast crowd way back in 1992. Guess what? I still adore it. The quintessential fifties Caddy; a big boat with aerospace fins like a modern day space machine, it typifies the behemoth that would have been responsible for the bug-eating grin you would have had while riding in it. FM reprised the ’92 image, in its convertible form, in 2005. It was a luscious shade of green with saddle interior. But in red, with a red interior, it epitomizes the in-your-face attitude you might have had if you owned this icon in 1:1 scale in fifty-nine.

FM crafted up a lesser limited edition than had ever been issued for the breed, 1500. The aforementioned green version came in an issue of 2500 pieces. This one is a thousand less and appropriately bodacious. The engine has plug wires and hoses and looks good even for today’s technology. All panel gaps are minimal and the ride stance is right where it ought to be. Place this baby on a shelf and admire it; it deserves that proper adulation.
