I'll Let You Drive

Hi There Fab Free! Happy Weekend! The weather has been nice, and I’m ready to go for a drive! First, I’ve got a few things I’m excited to share with you today. This hot little car Pru’s posed next to is a 10 linden RFL Home & Garden Expo Hunt gift by Surplus Motors. There are lots of 10L gifts to be found, and the proceeds benefit RFL. Secondly, this summery bandeau style top by De’Fient Unicorn is just 1 linden at ther Spring Cart Sale cart.

The Car – I’m not even sure where to start with this gorgeous vehicle. There are so many cool features. This isn’t just a piece for show, this highly detailed car by Surplus Motors is fully functional. There are seating poses for a driver and a passenger, and the car has manual and automatic drive options. The driver and passenger doors open, as does the hood and the back trunk where the engine is, even the lights are functional. This 10 linden RFL H&G Expo Hunt prize has customization options as well, there are 5 preset colors, and the option to pick your own custom color using RGB values. You can also change the license plate, and so much more. There’s an entire notecard included in the folder for this Lucca Custom car by Surplus Motors that tells you all about each of the many many features. To get your copy of this amazing car, head over to the RFL Home & Garden Expo (sim 5) to the Surplus Motors area. You’ll be looking for a prim version of the round RFL H&G Expo Logo.

The Top – Perfect for a warm weather day, this fishnet bandeau top is just 1 linden at the Spring Cart Sale De’Fient Unicorn cart. This cute dollarbie comes in several sizes, and includes an alpha layer. You know what that means, this one is suitable for classic non-mesh avatars as well as mesh avatars. No groups or tags needed, just head over to the De’Fient Unicorn cart and pay the gift vendor 1 linden.

Step Right Up And Enjoy The Show.

awesome stunt show 1

As a young boy, I witnessed a man in a raggedy, sequined outfit jump over a pair of trailers on his dirt bike, much to the delight of the crowd. Years later, here I am on the shoulder of Route 23, promoting the debut of my own daredevil show. I chose to wear a group gift from TentatioN. It is very casual and sporty, but with the camouflage pattern on the cargo pants pockets and in the lower corner of the shirt, it also says, “I am a warrior.” Sometimes, it’s best to let your clothes speak for you (unless they are going to say “I’m a dork”, then there is no reason to give them a megaphone). This, however, says volumes in a positive, masculine manner.  The gift comes with a color change hud, providing four color choices for both the mesh shirt and the pants. TentatioN is not a free group, though. It will set you back 30L, but this outfit in four colors is worth it.

I grew up in Los Tres Dolores New Mexico , a town named for a mystical formation of three cacti. For my death-defying entry into the world of show business, I will jump over that local landmark in the greatest riding lawnmower jump in the history of mankind! At first glance a lawnmower it may not appear to be the best choice for soaring through the air, but isn’t a riding mower essentially a helicopter that has been flipped upside down? This very detailed (and shockingly fast) mower is the current FREE group gift from Knight Performance. This store along with the one which shares the building with them (Surplus Motors) are great sources for beautifully detailed vehicles in SL. Both stores are free groups and offer many Midnight Manias, group gifts and discounts. If you have any interest in vehicles on Second Life, you should seriously consider joining them.

If you are going to let your clothes do the speaking for you, this Rockabilly Hunt prize jacket from The Dark Fae positively screams, “Rebel.” Its cool stand-up collar and retro styling including a must see graphic on its’ back are perfect for people who don’t follow the rules, like me (even if it’s because I can’t be bothered to read them). The Rebel Soul Jacket sports versions with and without the t-shirt and comes in three sizes, plus an additional two sizes in fitmesh. Cool style is timeless, and this jacket is perfectly cool! This Rockabilly Hunt prize is not free, but at only 2L, it’s a bargain. These jeans are extraordinary as well, coming from a quickly expanding store called Illi. Currently on their Midnight Mania board, these Midnight Open Belt Jeans are nicely textured and look great, and a big surprise was the texture hud that came with them. Illi gives us 8 denim colors, 4 belt colors and 4 metal accent textures for the belt. That is excellent versatility for a free gift! It does carry a small logo, but it is easy to overlook, given the generosity of this Midnight Mania prize. Also worth noting are my mesh white leather sneakers, fresh from the Wayward Hunt. The prize, from the store United Colors, comes in both men’s and ladies’ sizes and with that touch of blue on them they look fantastic for a FREE hunt gift. I was truly impressed!

Well, I dressed for success and I did everything right but sometimes that just isn’t enough. Sometimes in life the ramp just isn’t high enough, or maybe the wind shifts, or maybe a lawn mower just isn’t meant to fly. A person could drive themselves crazy sitting back and reflecting over those kinds of things, but not me. I am on to my next great adventure and I hope you will be there with me.—–WHC Riler
