The other night Boyfriend & were hanging out when I suddenly ask him, “Will you help me build an R/C?” He was excited and told me he was just thinking about that the other day but didn’t know if I’d be interested in it or not. Knowing very well what my patience level is, he said it would probably be better if we start with on that’s already built then customize it the way I want. When something breaks, he’ll show me how to fix it. He offered some advice and grabbed one of his hobby books for me to flip through.
I couldn’t believe it! There are cars that go 70+ mph and run on NOS! He offered to give me his electric car and I can save up for the car I want when he saw my disappointment when the ones I kept picking out were in the $350 range. I took him up on his incredibly sweet gesture so my focused moved from looking at cars to looking at parts.
That’s when I saw her. The body of a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda and she was painted Panther Pink. I pointed and squealed, “I need that one! She matches Piiiinky!!!” He laughed a little, gave me a kiss on the cheek and said, “Okay….”
I’m quite a bit more excited about this than I thought I’d be. I need to take the car he’s giving me for a test drive before we decide on what I really need. However, I’ve already been scouring Ebay to find
accessories parts to transform “the car” into “Big Pinky”. I found some bright pink springs, pink lightening bolt shock covers, and some shiny chrome wheels. I originally wanted to go with tough tires that could climb the highest mountains up his parent’s driveway without spinning out but now I have to agree with him when he says street rod tires will look best. I guess I’ll save the tough tires for my truck when I get her since one of my requirements is that she needs 4-wheel drive.
