The Stealth-X by Snolo Sleds ($2549) is the Ferrari of Alpine sleds. The Stealth-X's three main parts; the mono shell, the front ski, and the front arm are mostly built from carbon fiber. The mono shell is molded to fit your lower body and includes a foam padded seat with a flip up padded back rest. The laid back seating position gives you the most stability and comfort when steering and leaning. Another great feature is a removable front ski that can be slotted into the shell so the sled can be worn as a backpack. If you're looking for a professional grade sled or have really spoiled kids then this is the ride for you.

"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.
Imagine living in the 25th century and you don't like the rules so you decide to rebel against them and this results in an oft overlooked gem from George Lucas. THX-1138 ($17) centers around a man and woman who are seriously pissed at the rules that have been set out for them to live by. Both written and directed by Lucas and starring Robert Duvall, Donald Pleasance and Don Pedro Colley, this is a hugely enjoyable movie which proves that George Lucas' talents are not restricted to Star Wars.
