        A guy here in the office received a beautiful metal MGA, 1:16 scale
sent to him by his brother in Kansas City.  The model is made by
"Tonka-Polistil", #01869.  It is green but there is another color
available......I don't know what it is.  Unfortunately, I have not been able
to find this model nor could the guy in Kansas City find another. Somewhere
out there is a red metal MGA with my name on it !
