Pepsi Dance Trax 1989 "Rhythm Nation"

Here is a new straight from VHS clip of the Grand Rapids show "Pepsi Dance Trax."  This one comes from 1989 and features a whole Club Eastbrook full of teens in their best 80s fashion dancing to Janet Jackson.
Also, local radio personality Michelle McKormick, who I believe is still on the air and.... another guy. Maybe someone can help me out with who he is?  Anyway, enjoy!

Ecto-77!

Okay, so this is not very "G.R." but I would say it IS pretty retro!
I thought it might be fun to share, in lieu of other content, my latest model-building project, "Ecto-77!"
Some readers probably may know my real-life car, a 1977 Pinto wagon....


Recently, I came across an original 1970's era Pinto wagon model kit.  Of course people were telling me I should do it up to look just like mine and I almost did, BUT I had also been wanting for a while to put together the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 kit. The two collided in my brain and I thought it would be fun to try and combine the two. A Ghostbusters Pinto seems pretty hilarious to me and something I've never seen tried before.  So, tinkering in my spare time from Sept. 2016 to March 2017, here is the final result-- Ecto-77!
Hope some enjoy it.
