I bought myself a plastic model. It's a Plymouth Fury and it is called "Christine". I could not find any Stephen King brand on it but there was a trademark stamp from Columbia pictures, licensing the Plymouth Fury name from the Chrysler Group (now Daimler?). They definitely mean Stephen King's "Christine" but I find it odd that there is no mention of him at all on the box or the instructions. I guess it falls under the rights sold for the movie where the movie folks can partner up with a toy model maker and cut their own deal.

Anyway, my plan is to build this model over the next few months. I will place several drops of my blood in the read paint and paint a few hairs into the back seat. Once done and time moves on and I am no longer of this world I foresee a day when some intergalactic travellers will read this post and, just for ****s and giggles, hunt down this model, extract my D.N.A. clone me, and we'll have some beers.

I hope you post a pic of it when it's completed.
