Hot Little Italian Number

Hot Little Italian Number

Posted to Flickr on 10 August 2009.

In the late 70s and early 80s the toy company Kidco produced a line of Matchbox-style cars called Burnin’ Key Cars. Key Cars came with a spring-loaded hole in the back into which you inserted a plastic key. When you squeezed the key, the car shot across the floor, or at your little brother’s head, if you preferred.

The Key Car shown here is a Ferrari 308 GTS licensed from the television series Magnum, P.I. starring Tom Selleck. I purchased it as a young boy way back in 1980, and it is in "well loved" condition today.

This image is straight out of the camera: no tweaking, no color processing, no cropping, no nothing.

Photo submitted to the Flickr group Macro Mondays. In keeping with the theme "A Little Italian," the palette is limited to the colors of Italy’s flag: green, white, and red.
