    The license plate says: EL VEGAS on the front and back plates.

    The inside seat area is made of white plastic with the black painted on. We will see how this stands up to time and hopefully will not turn as some of our others.

    Not what I expected. Hoping for more bling. It reminds me of the hot wheel cars I used to buy for my boys when they were growing up. (They didn't have any pink ones though)

    To me the “Pink Lady” is promising from the good pictures you have Lisa. However, I will have to see it in person. The detailing on this solid looks good-with the visors, steering wheel and underside of the car. Yes, I too wish more crystals were on the car. But given what EL has done in the last few years with putting fewer crystals on the solids I was not surprised on this piece. This summer I will be on the East Coast of the US in New York City and New Jersey for a little more than three months. With this in mind I plan to stop and see Micky at the EL store in Manhasset. So I will get to see everything and all the 2005 solids. That will be a big treat for me since both in Montana and Wyoming I do not have that opportunity at all. As a matter of fact some of the department stores that sell El here, one year they may have general distibution solids and the next year they won't have any solids in stock for holiday. So the Pink Lady and I have a solid car “date” to meet one another about a month from now! <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    Yes, it looks exactly like a hot wheels car! I wasn't going to buy one because again the size- for me if it had been smaller I would be in love with it.

    For me the solids are so appealing and charming because of the small size with tiny details. All the new solids for this year are bigger and I think when they become bigger they lose some of their charm at least this is my opinion. This is one of the reasons (as well as many others) that I say I am not “into it- collecting- like before and it does make me sad.

    As far a solids with crystals I think they are a thing of the past (I hope I am proven wrong) If you think about it, all the crystals have to be hand set therefore a lot of craftsmanship is involved in the production of the crystal encrusted solids. Let's face it today it wouldn't be feasible for EL to produce such a labor intensive solid because more labor involved cuts down on the # that can be produced.

    <img src='style_emoticons//cool.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’cool.gif’ /> I like the look of the Pink Lady, I think it's lovely. <img src='style_emoticons//wub.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wub.gif’ />

    Sounds a bit on the big side though, how does it look next to the Harrods taxi or van does it look in the same scale? <img src='style_emoticons//huh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’huh.gif’ />

    I agree with you, Lisa, about the size of the solids, small is good and makes the detail more appealling.

    I never get to see a solid in the shop before I buy it and because of the detailed pictures that I see on this site and in the bay (e) I always imagine them to be so much bigger than they actually are. It's always a pleasant surprise when I open the box to see it looking small and dainty in the flesh <img src='style_emoticons//rolleyes.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’rolleyes.gif’ />

    What is strange to me is that Margaret absolutely loves the pink cadillac and I don't care for it. <img src='style_emoticons//ph34r.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ph34r.gif’ /> Seems like it ought to be the other way around.

    I agree with Lisa that smaller is better when it comes to the solid perfumes. <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ /> All of the larger ones we have (like the Ferris Wheel) would be cuter on a smaller scale.

    Great idea Fee! It really is huge, just wait until you all see the NM ones- the lanterns are monsters! <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    Because of the size I had to rate it- I think it's OK- if it had been the size of the Harrods cars I would have rated it- I love it!

    I don't know why Estee Lauder made the Pink Lady so much bigger than the other vehicles?? <img src='style_emoticons//blink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’blink.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//blink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’blink.gif’ /> It just doen't make sense to me. When they introduced the red and gold barn I thought that should have been larger. Because it would have looked better with the pig and rooster. But I just don't get this at all.

    I wonder what else EL may design to go with the Pink Lady? I think some very “50's” items would be fun. <img src='style_emoticons//cool.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’cool.gif’ />

    This is a 1958 Cadillac convertible. <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    Closest real caddy to the perfume. <img src='style_emoticons//ph34r.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ph34r.gif’ />

    Wow – next to the Harrods vehicles, the Pink Lady looks like a giant!! However, I think I will still love it! <img src='style_emoticons//wink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wink.gif’ />

    It goes well next to the Vegas sign in the pictures from the convention.

    I agree with Woody too – more 50s items to go with it would be good! A “Happy Days' thing! <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    Nice pic of the real thing, Don – where'd you find that? And how come Margaret likes it more than you do? Where's the boy in you, Don? <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    Well, I see I am in the 30% range not overwhelmed by the new “Pink Lady.” <img src='style_emoticons//wink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wink.gif’ />
    Thanks Lisa for some really nice comparison shots of the new “Pink Lady” with the Harrod's truck and van. <img src='style_emoticons//blink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’blink.gif’ />
    I'll be looking forward to purchasing the “Pampered Pup” but not too many of the other new solids. <!–emo&<_<img src='style_emoticons//dry.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’dry.gif’ /> I think I'll stick with buying the older solids since I am new to the collecting solids game. <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />

    Great photo Don & Margaret!

    This is a case where bigger is not better! <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    I don't recall hearing comments about the Mermaid being too large. If you stand the car on end it is the same size as that one.
    However,I do agree that it does looks rather a bit too large. Smaller would be nicer.

    Hi All-

    Thanx to all the chatter re: the convention and the new pieces and the great pictures- HOPEFULLY- next year I will make it there to the convention to meet you all??!! <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ /> – I see eBay is already listed the Pink Lady!! Buy it now for $350.00- Some people are just greedy <!–emo&<_<img src='style_emoticons//dry.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’dry.gif’ /> – Or maybe stupid to know they could order it for almost 1/2 that price <img src='style_emoticons//blink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’blink.gif’ /> ?
