(PIC) I had a few Matchbox models (1:64?) one of which was a '58 Cadillac Fleetwood 60 Special.
It was my favorite toy adn was in thw same purple color seen in the pic below. I constantly drove it all over the house, all over the furniture, accompanied by V8 exhaust sound. I think that one model started my lifelong love for Cadillac, especially those from 50s.
