1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Model Kit by Revell
Available at megahobby.com
What a model car kit really? Admit it, there is a car that we all wanted and desire to have this is nice model to hold on to our dreams. My first car was a 1966 Chevy Caprice 2 door with a 327. I swapped out with my father for the 1966 Chevy Bel Air 4 door sedan with a 283 and factory installed A/C. I love muscle cars thanks to dad I’m the ultimate Tomboy. What saddens me the whole D.C. Sniper got my car profiled as potential shooters payload in the trunk. Plus, gas hit $4.83 a gallon who knew it would drop back down again. When you get pulled over six times a week making you late for work one gives up the cars. Well I have 1966 models that dad and I once owned the 1966 Caprice 4 door sedan 327 with factor A/C and the 1965 Chevy Impala Super Sport 2 door convertible with a 409. Now we put a shift kit in the power glide transmission on the Impala, I hit 45 mph in reverse in 12 seconds hitting a friend’s calf in the field.
Dad got rid of the car; I cried for months, and he should have taught me to drive stick. I have another reason something for show and tell to go with the photos for my cherished memories of 66 Chevrolets. Admit it our dad or uncle had the car, we hoped to have, it doesn’t work out that way. The other car I lusted for was the 1971 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda convertible, the car had one owner and this E-body beauty has a custom block 426 with bronze guides. I’ll settle for a model desktop trophy for now, less harassment from the police. The Hemi slipped out of my hands, I know where it is and I’m still hoping to outlive the current owner. I don’t care if I become an old lady that can’t see over the steering wheel, it will be mine! This model car kit is only to help hold on to that dream: I will drive it, I will own it, and I will die a happy woman! Choose your own dream there many models available.

A must have on any trip through Jurassic Park of the insect kind. It never fails I find the largest, liquid bombs on the world with that creepy icky yellowish green nuclear waste color. The Bugslide works great removing the ewee……… and it polishes leaving no residue. It has UV protectors plus beads water great. There is no need to find a car wash along your destination.

I’ve already received a GPS last Christmas and desire to utilize to the fullest. Resetting the gadget twice it has gotten me lost a few times. Thankfully, I still carry those paper origami directions in the car still. I was told by the tech guy update it and often. This little gem is perfect Pay once for life coverage for the United States (Including AK, HI, PR) & Canada. No monthly fees or continuing maintenance costs. Now the funny thing Hawaii has four interstate highways but Hawaii is an island, so what states does it connect…eeh?

It’s Murphy’s Law your battery has failed despite all the pre-maintenance winterization you have done to your car. The road side assistance will be three hours, the last person offering to help looked like they belong on a unsolved mysteries program as the serial killer, after they’re gone it’s 2 am and your on another planet. The smallest “jump start” system for car batteries can restart a standard 12-volt car battery between 15 and 20 times on a full charge. This beats waiting for roadside assistance in the cold for three hours.

If you ever had one of those horrible designated parking places at work. Such as, the Dippy-dog marker 12 in the theme park, parking lot in the middle of July. I love the concept of whipping this scooter out of the trunk and riding it all the way to my workstation. Yes, waving at my boss as I pass by him and going “Wheeee”… All fun aside, something for just around the neighborhood. High torque motor variable speeds to 15 mph, twist grip throttle, and hand operated rear break. The 10” tires offer a good ride careful of potholes. The battery has short charge time and can hold up to 45 minutes of use more like 25 minutes, if you constantly push 15 mph. The recommended age 12 yrs and up with a max weight capacity of 220 Ibs. I see this as a cheaper alternative to a $19,000 2010 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Classic. I don’t even know how to drive a motorcycle; I know I like it, what else could I say. This woman has high-octane wishes and high-horsepower dreams.
Bobby Ore Motorsports Stunt Car Driving School
Level One – Stunt Class 3 glorious days

It’s a great vacation to be a better driver okay, honest!
I’m sorry but seeing the “Transporter” and my favorite of all time “Bullitt” with Steve McQueen. I’ve always wanted to learn to drive like the movies. No, I don’t want to do something crazy on the road. I see this as a dream vacation, my theory the stunt driving classes will improve my skills in a perhaps scenario evading trouble. That’s my excuse for dropping $2,500 not including travel, stay and meals for three days. It’s just so cool to play on a fun vacation! Bobby Ore even has advanced stunt classes and a drift series of training. Not to mention counter terrorism driving! Too bad, I have to be in Law Enforcement to do that series. My sister thinks I have too much personality to be an officer, huh. I mean why go to Florida for Disney World boring. I want to go to Sebring, Florida and burn rubber. A great stunt driving video game would be more practical but hey Christmas is coming a person should dream big. Santa I’ve been a really, really sweet and good girl this year, I so deserve to tear up the track!
Oh for those on the cheap: I get a travel coffee mug and travel cooler cup every year sans the dollar store in my stocking thanks! I’m waiting for the travel dinning set great for tailgating!
