This is my first time doing a recap, so I hope I do well! :oldlol:

BTW, during the credits, Johnny says something you donít hear every day. Apparently, the second one-bid had to be reshot and the second showcase had to be edited due to a technical difficulty.

Not to nitpick, but its a Pontiac Grand Prix coupe (the personal luxury coupe that was technically mid-sized but was larger than the Catalina sedan -- sorry, no pretty girls included. Drat!) ...

and a Pontiac LeMans (that was the mainstream mid-size sedan offering from Pontiac).

Otherwise, a good recap. Would have loved to see the bathing module -- probably similar to the steam bath offered on Drew's TPiR -- and to know what "Lucie Ann penwa" refers to. Anybody?

*edits* XD.


Lucie Ann penwa(?) is clothing, as Johnny described it. It's for women, as he said "feminine."

I think it's "peignoir." It's lingerie.

RAT FUR? Is that really what it was? I'd pass it too...

Well, too late to edit now...

Yep, Johnny said it was made of rat. Pretty disgusting, but it was a fur coat in the 70's!

Way to bump a thread. Was it really that big of a deal that I screwed up a name? This thread is over a month old.
