Yes, I was one of the six who chose Praline. I share Harvey's opinion. $399
I recall was the price of entry.

Curtis' photos are superb and the model appears to be very attractively finished. I can't think that there could be more than a dozen examples out there.

While very rare and nicely proportioned, it was entirely resin-bodied and I was not satisfied with the appearance of the wood framing which to me looked slightly transparent. If Bruce had been able to duplicate his earlier work such as the substantial 1953 Cadillac fare which was white metal and had lovely nickel-plated bumpers and lustrous professionally applied paint, I likely would still have this model. Still, a very nice piece of history and a model that is rarely seen.
