Cool surprise Christmas gifts

Post by IMADreamer »

I got an incredible gift today. I seriously don't know how in the hell she knew I'd like it. So long story short, Sam Posey is my favorite race car driver of all time and I have always had a thing for his 1970 Challenger TA. So this morning wrapped up under the tree was this beauty. It's 1/18 scale, didn't even know it existed. I really don't collect cars but this thing is going to look awesome on my desk. Maybe the coolest Christmas gift I've ever gotten.

I know little about cars and less about racing (have never even heard of that guy)...but that does look really cool.

I snagged some of that for my boss last year. This year he had to settle for Rowan's Creek.

Anyway, I ended up with a planer. My neighbors are going to love me about as much as Dreamer's love him.

Sister got me an immersion circulator (sous vide). Just did some NY strips, and holy [expletive], it's great. Amazingly foolproof.

Get yourself a Searzall torch attachment to obtain a nice crust.
