Franklin Mint Austin Mascot

The photos don’t really give you an idea of how small this really is.  However, keep in mind that this is 1/3 the size of the original and the original was quite at home on a car which was only 10′ long from bumper to bumper.  These were made in 1983 and were part of a larger collection.  I spent a while looking for one and while they come up for sale from time to time, I only picked one up a few months ago.  One thing to be wary of is that these are fairly fragile and shipping insurance is a good idea.  Thank you for the tip Drew!
