1st Annual Muscle Car Tourney: Starter Match

Hello everyone welcome to the 1st annual Muscle Car Tourney. 14 Players have each chosen a specific favorite muscle car from 1964-1974 to compete in 12 high octane weeks of voting. But I wanted to get things going with a starter match with 2 cars that are not competing in the tourney.  The 76 Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am and the 78 Chevy Camaro Z28 .

Kate Gabrielle's Shop is wonderful



I came across the amazing Kate Gabrielle on Twitter last year and I've been following her ever since. She is a big classic movie lover and has her own creator owned shop where you can buy pins, t-shirts, jewelry and other accessories.  Not too many her very own art work and prints. I highly recommend checking out her shop with the link provided below as well as her fantastic blogs :)
