MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Got these cool kits today. The Da Vinci clock is a wooden kit, I found it at Hobby Lobby. The music box is a wooden kit, and the Strandbeest is a plastic kit. I found both of them on Amazon. I think I might go with a Steampunk theme for all of them...
  2. Nice lookin CJ. All you need is a truck, and you’ll be ready for race day 🙂
  3. That is beautiful. Does it sound as nice as it looks?
  4. The famous jet truck known as “Shockwave”, after about 3 1/2 decades of entertainment, made its last run this past Saturday. The fiery crash happened on Saturday, July 2 during the Field of Flight Air Show at Battle Creek Field, Michigan. Neither the truck, nor the driver, survived. Here’s a link to an article with some more information: https://jalopnik.com/driver-dies-in-jet-truck-crash-at-michigan-airshow-1849144522 Condolences and prayers to Chris’ family, and all who were affected by the event.
  5. Wow - that’s awesome! From what I found (quick search), I agree about them being legit. Looks like they got some neat stuff, too.
  6. Nice little Nissan. Looks good in that color.
  7. Yep, that’s the one. Being on the Eastern side of the map, I haven’t heard about them until I discovered their website. So, any info is much appreciated.
  8. That beauty definitely belongs in a museum - it looks just like the real thing! Congrats on the museum showcase!
  9. I just found this website the other day. If anyone needs or wants the link, I can get you it. Has anyone ordered anything from them? I just want to know if shipping is good. Oh, and if they’re legit 😁 Thanks in advance
  10. Here's a neat article that I found. A '65 Shelby with an interesting story to tell. Just wanted to share this with y'all. https://www.torqtalk.com/home/worlds-fastest-200mph-silver-bullet-65-shelby-mustang-gt350r
  11. Are you on Facebook? They have a group made for the airport. The first time we went down there was the event after JJ's race, and we didn't know it. I remember watching that episode of Street Outlaws and thinking "hey, that's the airport at Berkeley Springs!" lol
  12. Yep, that's the one! Potomac Airpark, IIRC.
  13. Actually yesterday, but I took my F150 down to the drag races. There's a no-prep track down in WV that Dad and I go to often. Well, yesterday was the first time that I actually ran instead of just watched. Didn't run any classes, just test passes. Anyways, the real pleasing thing is that I almost outran a Chrysler 300 (SRT8, maybe? Not exactly sure, I just know it had some horsepower). The Chrysler only got me by half a car, which is a milestone for my ol' truck (both of us made clean passes). Last year the truck couldn't keep up to SUVs, now she holds her own against performance cars. I guess I should add that we did some work to it over the winter, so it's a bit different from what it was last year.
  14. I have the honor of being the Photographer for my Uncle’s wedding! I’ve been dabbling in photography for a while, and this will be my first official work. Needless to say, I’m pretty excited about it!
  15. Behold, my prizes for the day... A bottle of Blue Rocket traction compound for all the no-prep races that we'll run in this year. And I found a neat-lookin book at Ollie's. Since I'm a guitarist who likes to listen to the classics, it just had to come home with me 🙂
