Anthony's Model Cars
1928 Porter Convertible 'My Mother the Car'
long time ago AMT released the 1/25 scale kit My Mother the Car from
the television show of the same name, starring Jerry van Dyke, Dick
van Dyke's brother. |
Basically, the AMT version was a Ford Model T Touring with a modified engine hood, radiator, headlamps, trunk and gas tank. Allthough not a real T, as it shares a lot of parts I added the model to the collection.
My Mother the Car may very well be known as the most notorious short-lived sitcom of all time (1 season, 30 episodes) and the worst television series of all time. It's solely due to it's premise, a talking car. Dave Crabtree (Jerry van Dyke) discovers that his mother has returned from the grave as a 1928 Porter convertible automobile.
Well, my model doesn't talk...
