I am so impressed with this model every time I see and hold it. First came the convertible version and now this sport coupe iteration. It has all the bells and whistles but itís the little things that DM built into it that so amaze me. Case in point; it would be easy to overlook and justifiably so, the intricately detailed and tiny internal trunk latch. It sits on the rearward portion of the interior of the cavernous trunk. Thereís a realistic floor mat, tire tools and spare to distract us and the upper inside lid itself is adorned in insulation and jacking instruction sheet. But attention to detail is the selling feature of this magnificent replication.

The same engine bay and interior detailing is here but never so more lovely than the original offering in rag top fashion released in í05. Didnít like the connie kit? Fender skirts not your particular cup of tea? Rejoice Pilgrim, your ship has landed. DM left them off this version and it looks period correct in two-tone, Burma and Calypso Green, sans accoutrement. The colors are a wonderful throw-back to the era that spawned pastel and vivid color combos. The interior is formulated in every shade of Spring. The dash and floor are awash in scaled detailing and the door hinges are todayís tech all the way. So are the scissors-sprung hood hinges. And now the DM scripts, still in gorgeous metal-foil, are coated and meant to last.

The chassis is magnificent in its all-inclusive fabrication and the engine includes the same removable air cleaner as the first Bonnie iteration. The tire valve stems and tiny door lock buttons add to the detailing and the stance and complete fidelity to the genuine article has never looked better. DM has the bells and whistles down perfectly but still manages to pay attention to the small things that add up and make such a brilliant presentation. Way to go DM! Limited to production during 2008. After 12/31/08, production ceases.
