So, as some of you may know, I'm into the whole My Little Pony fandom, I went to BronyCon in Baltimare over the weekend, 3 days. I drove the Eagle there, and parked her in a parking garage, attendant gave me a nod of approval.
When I left, they attendant saw all the pony stuff I had on and in the car, and said "You went to that convention?" I told him I sure did, he then said "I didn't expect somebody with such a badass car to be into something like that." Which is kind of funny too, because I heard a loud roar before I got the the parking garage from the convention center, look over, and there's a 2004-ish Mach 1 that sounds like she could torque the Earth off it's axis with a Rainbow Dash sticker in the window

Then on the drive back, got stuck in traffic, and an older woman pulled up next to me and rolled down her windows, so I turned down my music in case she wanted to say something to me (I'm kind of vain, so I think that whenever somepony rolls down their windows by me in these situations) and she said she used to have an Eagle, and they were the best cars ever, the only reason she sold hers was because she couldn't find parts, then asked where I get parts, unfortunately, I got used to that, and said the Eagle Nest and traffic took off before I could correct myself.

Also, on the drive up from SC, I got 31.6MPGs with her

:lmao: Doesn't sound like he thought the Mach 1 was a badass car.
But hey, glad he thinks an Eagle is badass (and over a Mach 1 too apparently) :banana:

Maybe we need to reinvent Kenosha Kards? That way everyone can do their own from home, four cards to the sheet of cardstock.

Probably not too expensive to make either, had a program on an old computer when I was a kid that made printing your own really easy

The Kenosha Kards were set up using MS Publisher. It has a setting for four cards and its easy to do the front and back from one master.

Below are the very early version (2004) of the trading cards.
