Evan’s Lightning McQueen – Tube Tuesday’s

“Cars” may not be the most well-liked Pixar movie among adults, but it’s got a healthy following among kids! So when Sean Burgess’ five-year-old son wore out his Lightning McQueen Powerwheel, Burgess did what any experienced car tuner would do. At the age of 2 Evan received his Lightning McQueen Powerwheel for christmas. After three years of use he had worn through the plastic wheels. So he and his father, decided to upgrade to metal rims with rubber tires. From that point more modifications were added every few weeks. Now, Evans Lightning McQueen Powerwheel is equipped with an aluminum back half chassis, dual sealed gel batteries with an output of 24 volts, a 500 watt .66 horsepower electric motor, disk brake, throttle modulated variable speed control with reverse and sparco battery cut off switch. Talk about a dream come true for a 5 year old! His own race car!! I am sure we will see him driving Formula 1 or Nascar someday!

Here’s something many guys will appreciate! Anyone remember Gilbert Gottfried? The famous voice of Iago the Parrot from Disney’s Aladdin? Well try having him read a couple pages of the book and try not to laugh! Impossible!

Cleaning Out My Closet – Whatever’s On The Weekend

We’ve done a lot of renovations at home over the past year and the basement has pretty much turned itself into a storage room. But it came time this week for me to start going through all the bins, bags and boxes of stuff from my old room. Amongst the piles, I came across some incredible things that are slowly starting to become retro to my days as a kid who is only 20. (Yes you may have some way older retro stuff in your basement but this is whats old school and full of memories for me)

For starters: Vengaboys, ‘N Sync (No Strings attached & Celebrity) , Aqua, Lou Bega, Ricky Martin, Shaggy, Aaron Carter, TLC, Usher, Mario, Soul Decision, Shawn Desmond, B44 , Avril Lavigne, Ashlee Simpson, Black Eyed Peas (Elephunk), Nickelback, 50 Cent (Get Rich or Die Tryin’) Ludacris (Chicken and Beer), Good Charlotte, Outkast (Speakerboxx and The Love Below), Christina Milian, 3 Door Down (Away from the Sun), Eminem (Encore) CD’s.
