Cyrus, the lights are OEM. They light up when you open the door/s. Some crazy music also plays along, but i ignore that.

The scale is an unconventional 1:31.

Well, the detailing is a lot better than that of an ordinary toy, and it didnt come cheap either, for a 1:31, as compared to my other acquisitions in a similar scale.

As for disconnecting the music, thats something i would be doing pretty soon.

Default Autofest City News - September 2008

Dear BHPians,

This is the concluding issue for Ford, in as much as the models at Autofest City are concerned. We already have quite a few new releases at Kevin’s Hobbies, Canada, which should be here with our next consignment around April 2009.

From the feedback we have received right through the Ford – Shelby tour, it seems that the coverage and history of the models has been quite exhaustive. Thanks for all your encouragement and appreciation – it has gone a long way to deliver better issues every time!

Here is the link to our September 2008 issue:

Best regards,
Neil D’Costa
