Yup, that was mine! Actually, I drove a combination of 4 Festivas over a period of about 20 years. I replaced quite a lot of parts on those cars, but when the wheel fell off, that was the final straw. Actually I was quite lucky it didn't happen at speed. It took some work at times to keep them going, but they were absolutely dirt cheap to drive, maintain, and insure, plus I was stubborn when it comes to squeezing the last bit of useful life out of something (still am).
Wow. I forget where mine came from. All of that stuff got lost following the breakup of the family when I was 16. That cardboard LEM rustles a few neurons as well, but I'm not sure if I had it. I had the Revell and Monogram models of everything and followed the missions with the models as they were configured at the time, as I was an impressionable an dweebish, geeky 13 year old at the time!@Blast it Tom! When I was 11 years old my dad handed me that Apollo 11 glass after filling the gas tank of his car. It's a great memory. Somehow through the years I've been able to hang on to that glass without breaking it. The cardboard cutout Apollo 11 LEM that Dad gave me after another gas tank fill-up offer from the same time period didn't survive the years, but my memory of building it remains.
it was likely in my picture of a woman walking and holding her underwear off to the side , now even though you can walk through every mall and see every ad on TV with a woman shown in her bikini briefs, but in this case it is singled out on my account more than likely. And somehow family-friendly is different on here than it is on TV or walking in the mallPost 939, "Keep it family friendly"
What did I miss? :-0
I've purchased several glasses (Apollo 12 and 13) at antique stores. Glass carafes / decanters / pitchers were originally available with some glass sets and they can be purchased on eBay.I have four Apollo glasses still in the cardboard carrier they came in. Along with news papers of the day covering every launch from mercury through the Shuttle.
Dave had the company Shadow Aero, right? I tried talking him into making the Ultra Fat Boy rockets again.#969, Thunderbird.
My favorite of all boats.
Dave Triano works for the company who maintains and operates this boat.
He gets to drive it around Lake Tahoe, that is so cool!
Like this?My post 988 has a model rocket displayed with looks to be pillow stuffing around an orange light. Can anyone give more details on how this done?

Sorry I didn't have a chance to reply earlier. I've been pretty busy lately and am just catching up with the goings on around here!I have to ask... what's the corkscrew like in real life? Laguna Seca has always been one of my favorite tracks, but I've never been on it outside of in a simulator.
