Re: PC: HO Autos

I have the Mustang and it's either a '69 or '70; they made a lot of cars
including an 80's Buick Regal, 89 Gran Prix and T-Bird, an 80's Camaro, and
a lot of exotic sports cars.   Mongram made them, then they dumped them and
Con-Cor picked up those too - sells them for like $6-$10 each last time I
saw them.  Yikes!
