Who says you can't make deals at used car lots? I think we made off pretty good! Got them to throw in a new set of all season tires and a hitch! B)

4" inches of unwanted snow in northwest Indiana. Once asked what nw Indiana was like, I responded by saying if God decided to give the planet an enema, this is where he would stick the tube.

It is actually a 2011 and has 118k kms on it now (about 73k miles). But it is fully loaded and has much, much more room than our trade in (a Pontiac G3). It is amazing how much space you lose when toting a baby around! :blink:

Drooling over those Jo-Han Hearse kits. Actually had several of them at one time but never built them. Well, my addiction begins anew as I have ordered the Minicraft 1/16 th MG TC and Tamiya's 1/24th scale Mini Cooper from Tower Hobby. Now to take on the "Pavlovian" mindset: start drooling in anticipation everytime I see a UPS truck :lol:

I've had three Chrysler mini vans. All were good soldiers. The one we have now is a 1996 that we bought new and now have 186,000 on it. So yours is barely broken in.

You did great Chris. I can see how you need the room. I was in your shoes 10 years ago....

Then went out tonight to a function at the wife's job, and since I'm Daddy Day Care Mon-Fri, and work myself on Sat & Sun, I took the opportunity out of the house and temporarily free of toddlers to swing through the LHS to replenish my Semi-Gloss Black, get some silver base for some Mica colors I have, and pick up the only thing Revell has done (or will do up through June) that I wanted to acquire.

A Wen-Mac Spirit of America toy. I just won it on eBay. It's missing the vertical fin, but that's OK. It's not for collector value, it going to get rebuilt and maybe have a little detail added.

Here's a photo of one with fin:

I found a site that has repro vintage toy parts, including the fin that's missing from the SoA that I got. Cool!

Something that caught my eye on eBay, and I guess since it was Palm Sunday, the first day of fishing season in many places, and the first genuinely nice day most of the East Coast has had in 6 months or so no one was around to bid on it...except me - stuck at work. So snagged for the opening bid...1986 issuing, everything sealed up inside.
