"I'm An American Bad Ass", are the lyrics to one of my favorite Kid Rock songs. Those lyrics perfectly describe the 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 'Cobra Jet' ($70k-$80k) that's up for auction in beautiful Hershey, Pennsylvania. 1969 was the first year Ford introduced the 428 cu. in. OHV Cobra Jet V8 series of engines. These engines were paired with a Cruise-O-Matic transmission and put out 335 horses. This ride was completely restored back to its original specifications by rotisserie restoration, taking over three years to complete. The auction is taking place on October 9th and along with this iconic sports car you will find an assortment of boats, and other very rare vehicles.
This amazing and ground breaking 2009 masterpiece by James Cameron ushered in the era of the RealD 3D cinema technology. Avatar ($17) follows Jake Sully, (Sam Worthington) a paralyzed Marine that's been dispatched to the moon known as Pandora. He has a unique mission which leaves him conflicted between carrying out the orders that he's given and protecting this new world. Avatar is currently the king when it comes to the proper use of 3D to enhance and make you feel like you're apart of a movie and not just using it as a gimmick. The cast features Sigourney Weaver, Sam Worthington, and Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, Michelle Rodriquez, and Giovanni Ribisi. Avatar is currently the highest grossing movie of all time.
OK, occasionally an idea comes along that is just simply amazing. The Stuff-A-Burger Set ($24) allows you to stuff your favorite fixings into your burgers, taking standard fare and making it something truly remarkable. Imagine a bacon cheddar stuffed cheese burger or caramelized onions and blue cheese. The possibilities are endless. The set comes with the Stuff-A-Burger Press and a grill basket. What a great way to kick off the summer.
If you're looking for an everyday cap this coming winter, check out the Nike Air Max 90 Winter Strapback Cap ($32). It's made from a soft wool blend and features a six-panel design with interior taping for durability and comfort. The clip strap in the back allows you to adjust for that perfect almost custom fit.

I love the Ford GT. And the 2016 Ford GT ($TBA) looks like it won't disappoint. The Newest GT just revealed at the Detroit Auto Show will come with a compliment of advancements when it starts production in 2016 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the GT's placing 1,2, and 3 in the 24 Hours Le Mans. These updates include a V6 twin-turbocharged Ford Ecoboost engine that puts out more the 600 horses, and the use of lightweight materials including carbon fiber and aluminum to improve acceleration, handling, and efficiency. Additional features include an active rear spoiler and 20" wheels that make an aggressive visual impact.
