Hot Wheels '70 Hemi Cuda

My father had a Plymouth Barricuda after he got out of school. Like many fathers, he gave it up when he started having kids. There is a commercial, kind of corny, where a couple of sons hunt down their father's sports car using the VIN number, buy it and give it to him for his birthday. Don't remember the car, and don't remember what the commercial was for. In our case, my better half saw this Cuda Hot Wheels car and thought it would be fun to give to my dad. His tastes have changed and I doubt he would even want his old Cuda. He has the memories (and now this model) and for a man like him, that is satisfaction enough.
