Toy Joy

Joy Toy

Above is my latest Ghia, a smooth little '66, green and about 3.25 inches tall...

Yep, that's right, this little guy is a toy model of my favorite transportation. 9" from the nose to the rear end. The doors, trunk, rear deck all open up. The front wheels turn and in doing so rotate the steering wheel! The front seats even fold down for access to the back seats. It's manufactured by Yatming.

No, it won't get me to work each morning, but already Amy has established that rubbing the VW emblem on the nose brings good luck for the day's endevours. She says also that it's a visualization tool. I'm supposed to use it to imagine myself in another full-size version.

January, 1999
