At first glance, the striking Millennium Galaxy Blue color is a real eye-grabber. The only minor complaint I have is with the metal flake finish. It's a tad heavy on the flake, although I'm sure FM's intention was to accentuate that special tie-in with the millennium. Fit and finish is very good, although I can't get the rear deck lid on my model to close tightly. To make this car a little more special, it has been issued in a limited production run of 7,500 pieces.

What stands out on this model are all the moving parts. In addition to the opening doors, trunk, hood, working suspension and steerable wheels, FM took great pains to add some neat features. The driver's and passenger side windows move up and down in the frame (albeit by hand). Look inside and notice that the front seats move back and forth. Look in the glove box and there is a pair of gloves inside. There is also a cellular phone sitting atop the dash. The deck lid opens to reveal the limited edition plaque on the floor.

Included with the model were a pair of tweezers and a tool that looks somewhat like a dentist's probe. While probing around the interior, I found that I was able to move the parking brake handle up and down. An interesting touch. Volkswagen has caught our attention and our hearts with the introduction of the New Beetle. FM seems to have accomplished the same thing with the introduction of the Millennium Beetle. If you're into nostalgia, this is the model to have. (12/15/1999)
