Thunderbirds are five

Here are the five very impressive models that you could have been playing with fifty years ago. The suspension models 214S and 215S don't seem quite right to me, the lower slung originals seeming more representative of what I remember the real thing looking like.

The photos below show just how remarkable this vehicle was. And also serve to illustrate just how well Corgi had reproduced them at one-forty-third of the size.

There is a sixth - a Bermuda Taxi - but I am not too bothered about getting that! These are very impressive cars and the two recent additions - the 214S and 215S are almost as new, in beautiful condition. I hadn't expected to like them as much as I do!
