Default Movie Car Location?

Does anyone know who own's the convertible used by Elvira (Hope that is spelled correctly). I belive it was a black convertible, squarebird years. Thought for sure it would be listed on this great webpage with some information on its current location and status.

It is a 1959 Hardtop that had the roof cut off to make it look like a convertible.

Pictures of the car are here: http://www.elvira.com/plchest/macmobile/mmgallery.html

Both Monogram and Johnnie Lightning based their models of the Macabremobile on the 1958 Thunderbird. Monogram did so because they already had a 1958 Thunderbird model. Johnnie Lightning apparently copied the Monogram model, not the actual car.

Hi-Fraid I have no knowledge of its owner but I have some photos of the car when it was at the Petersen Museum in LA . Can e-mail them to you if you wish . They have no record of it on their archive but they might be able to tell you who owns it

Best wishes

Peter
