Some years ago I sent Rick some photos I'd taken in the 1970s of my cousin Ken's Series II Alpine. http://www.oldclassiccar.co.uk/sunbeam.htm

Well back in February I was contacted by John Lakey of Corgi Models asking if they could make a model of Ken's car.

True to his word John sent both Ken and myself copies of the model that arrived today.

Hehe that's very cool indeed, did this fella from Corgi join the forum, or contact you via your site?

What a great result Peter. if you keep it in the box, along with the correspondence from Corgi it could well be worth a significant amount in 50+ years.

I should really have looked after my Barbie's. Wink

Hi Rick,

He saw the photos in your Sunbeam page but contacted me through my website. I don't think he joined up to OCC.

Note to self: Contact solicitor to add it to my will.
