Honey, I Shrunk My Cloud Car!
Well, not exactly. This is a 1995 Chrysler Cirrus LXi 1:24 plastic dealer promotional replica manufactured by Brookfield Collectors Guild, whom is no longer in business after the buyout from Action Racing Collectibles (RCCA). The hand-assembled model is very realistic and the resemblence to the life-size automobile is quite remarkable to scale. It features a coaster chassis mounted with rolling wheels on metal axles. If this is a must have for your hobby collection, I recommend shopping eBay. Keep in mind that they are pretty rare being a discontinued item for many years. But the chances of locating a mint-in-box condition unit is actually not extremely difficult. You just have to keep looking daily. Of course, many other numerous Mopar passenger vehicles were crafted by Brookfield Collectors Guild. Good luck in your search!
This last Saturday we went to the Library. I took photos.
Sounds strange I know, but you have to take a look.( Read more...Collapse )
1997 Stratus ES
I absolutely love my car, but it has one major annoyance- the gas gauge. Is it just my car, or all they all this loopy and inaccurate. Here's what I mean:
I fill the tank all the way; the needle goes all the way to full. Good.
A hundred miles later, the gauge has barely gotten to the first line down from the full line. Then the bottom just falls out and over the course of another 75 miles or so it gets down to the line just above the red zone. It takes another 100 or so to get down into the red zone, and then the time it takes to read "empty" varies.
Is this just a quirk of my car, or is it present in all cloud cars? Current Mood: annoyed
