DINKY TOYS 1972 PINK PANTHER CAR...



A couple or so years ago, I showed the second edition
of the PINK PANTHER car (released by MECCANO, who
once owned DINKY) and promised to one day show the first
version once I had dug it out of a box in my cupboard.  Well,
that day is finally here, so feast your eyes, Panther fans. 



And don't forget the opening and closing credits
of  the Pink Panther show - sing along now...



And let's not forget his original theme tune...

They did a pretty good job getting the car down pat.

Recall the the car made news nearly a decade ago as whoever had it had sold it on eBay (it's referred to as "The Pinkmobile" BTW). Here's some links!

It's a cracking design, Chris. I'd like a proper model, with opening side doors and an interior like the car on TV. Ta for the links.

I haven't seen the Pink Panther opening credits for decades, Kid !! The cartoon version of Inspector Clouseau is much better than the Peter Sellers film version in my opinion - controversial !!

Crivens! Shock sensation! I agree with you, CJ - much funnier.
