1979 Pontiac Trans AM

Another great car that I saw at the Tallahassee Automobile Museum is muscle car,
a 1979 Pontiac Trans Am SE.The 1979 Firebird was re-designed with new graphics and a front nose with quad rectangular headlamps that stood in seperate bezels with a new grille below them. The rear end also got a make-over and featured blackout panels that disguised the taillights on Formula and Trans Am models.

Note: Another record setting year for the Trans Am and it's sales and a special silver 10th Anniversary edition Trans Am was sold in what would be the last year for the Pontiac 400 engine.
This car is refer as the Bandit,made famous by the movie Smokey and the Bandit, by Burt Reynolds.This is the fastest factory car Pontiac Car ever produced.
Fully restored, this car is painted black, with a gold firebird on the hood.And it has only 10 actual miles driven.

A Thousand Dollars Luxury Pizza

What is the difference? A Thousand Dollars Pizza from Nino Bellissima and a Five Dollars Pizza from Little Ceasars.
A New York restaurateur has cooked up the most world's most extravagant pizza -- a $1,000 pizza topped with six sorts of caviar and fresh lobster.

Nino Selimaj, who runs six pizza restaurants in New York, on Wednesday unveiled his Luxury Pizza, a 12 inch (30 cms), thin crust topped with caviar, lobster, creme fraiche and chives. Cut into eight, it works out at $125 a slice.

"I know this won't be for everyone but there are people in New York who can afford it and once tried, they'll be back for more. It is delicious," said Selimaj, who moved to New York from Albania about 29 years ago.

"Sure, some people will say it is just a publicity stunt but I have researched this for over a year and think there is a demand. I have already sold one."

Selimaj said his restaurant Nino's Bellissima, which is the only one of his restaurants to offer the Luxury Pizza, needs 24 hours notice for the gourmet dish as it orders the caviar in advance.

"But where better to experiment with pizza than in New York where people love their pizza," he said.

If diners are still peckish after the Luxury Pizza, they can always head over to the midtown restaurant Serendipity that sells a $1,000 ice-cream sundae called Golden Opulence which is covered in 23K edible gold leaf.

For a $1000 you can 200 pizza from Little Ceasars or Cici Pizza .,for $5.00 a piece with lots of pepproni and cheese ,with marinara and garlic sauce

A Thousand Dollars Dessert

Have you even tried the most expensive Ice Cream Sundae? How much did you pay? $10,$15? How About $1000 U.S.Dollars?
What do you get when you take five scoops of Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream decked with exotic candies and truffles, dribble bittersweet chocolate with a 70 percent cacao content over it, top it with fruit-infused caviar and edible gold leaf, and serve it in a crystal goblet with an 18-carat gold spoon?
The world’s most expensive dessert.
Thanks to Stephen Bruce, one of the founders and owners of Serendipity 3, a dessert cafe and popular tourist destination on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, satisfying a guilty pleasure has reached a new level of indulgence. The Golden Opulence Sundae, created to celebrate 50 years of luxury cuisine, isn’t on the menu, nor is it advertised. It’s like an exclusive club, marketed only through word-of-mouth, where you slip the bouncer a few Franklin to get to the front of the line. It’s secret. It’s special. And it’s $1,000 a serving.
“It’s bold and over the top,” Bruce said. “Like most things in New York.”
Bruce came up with the idea back in September 2004, when he was looking for a way to commemorate the golden anniversary of the cafe he’d opened with close friends Patch Carradine and Calvin Holt. Of the three--then all ballet dancers known for throwing fabulous parties--Bruce, now in his early 70s, is the only one left to taste the product of a lifetime’s achievement.
“On the day we unveiled it,” Bruce said, “I had the whole thing.” Since then, Serendipity 3 has sold more than a dozen of the Wonka-worthy delights. Customers who invest in the Golden Opulence Sundae are often wealthy buyers looking for a creative way to commemorate an occasion of their own. Past consumers have included a couple from Canada celebrating their wedding anniversary; a successful lighting designer; a woman treating her daughter on her sweet 16th birthday and trying to top her 15th, which included a walk-on appearance on the television show "Friends.”
The sundae isn’t meant to be a spur-of-the-moment purchase. It’s only available by appointment, and the ingredients--everything from the Parisian candied fruits to the pricey Amedei Porcelana chocolate--have to be ordered in advance. A well-known specialty cake designer, Ron Ben-Israel, created the gold-covered sugar flower, while the rare Chuao chocolate is harvested from cocoa beans on Venezuela’s coast. The Grand Passion Caviar--served in a mother of pearl spoon--comes stripped of its saltiness and sweetened with fresh passion fruit, orange and Armagnac liqueur.
Bruce personally supervises each construction, a 20-minute process because of the delicate nature of the ingredients. Chocolate is chopped and melted; ice cream is layered with Madagascar vanilla. Once customers have savored the delicacy, they get to keep the golden spoon and $300 Baccarat Harcourt crystal goblet.
The sundae has joined the ranks of the city’s most extravagant edibles; another is the Algonquin Hotel’s $10,000 martini, which comes garnished with a diamond of the purchaser’s choice. But in the world of solid foods, the Golden Opulence Sundae has little competition, and was the first to gain recognition from the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s most expensive sundae.
Its nearest New York challenger--an entire zero away--is famed toy store FAO Schwarz’s Volcano Sundae at $100. The toy store’s concoction, however, is more about quantity than quality and is recommended for “four big eaters.” The mound of ice cream is drenched with seven toppings and erupts when the Belgian chocolate crust is cracked.
But it’s a different sort of customer who opts for the Golden Opulence.
Naresh Malhotra, a professor of marketing at the Georgia Institute of Technology, suggested that the sundae provided a unique experience for those who wanted to stand out from the crowd. “They can fulfill that need,” Malhotra said. “It can boost a person’s ego.”
Still, the Golden Opulence Sundae--about which celebrities and royalty have inquired--is not likely to reach the average sweet tooth. “I don’t think anyone who can’t make ends meet, would go out and spend $1,000 on an ice cream sundae,” Malhotra said.
Many find the concept hard to comprehend. Lynn and Spencer Sweet, a couple of theater buffs visiting from Vermont, braved the cold one recent Tuesday as they waited for two hours to try another popular invention at the crowded restaurant.
Lynn was eagerly anticipating the Frrrozen Hot Chocolate--a $7.50 ice cream shake that Rachael Ray had promoted on the Food Network. But they’d never heard of the Golden Opulence Sundae. And even if Spencer had an extra $1,000, would he indulge? “Not on a sundae,” he said, somewhat incredulously.
But soon there may be a cheaper version--a way to bring the quintessentially New York experience to the masses. “We’re planning a poor man’s option,” Bruce said. “For 1,000 cents.”
I rather go to Bruster's Ice cream and get me 3 big scopes of my favourite ice cream on a big waffle cone - only $4.50

The Mini Concept

I was always amazed though not in love with this cute little car. The Mini Cooper. I like to drive or sit in one but not so much as to own one.Remembered almost 30 years ago, I knew this guy who drove in one. That car was small but drove fast and furious. Even since I love to see a Mini.And few years back I was excited to see the new version when they brought it back.

Mini Showcases Stretched Mini Cooper Concept!!

BMW owned Mini Company, which manufactures the little, fashion icon car Mini Cooper have displayed a new concept based on the small car. This new concept vehicle is based on an extended version of the same Mini Cooper and it was showcased at the ongoing Frankfurt Motor Show on Monday. They call this concept car Mini Concept Frankfurt and it still retains the two doors, which are so popular on the regular version of the car.

However, the new long doors make it easier for the passengers to get into the rear seats of the car. Mini says that they were inspired by the Morris Mini Traveler to develop this version. At the back of the car, the rear doors are hinged on the sides and open out and both the doors hang on special “intelligent” hinges that minimize the amount of space needed to open them.

Inside this concept vehicle, seats are mounted in a way that they appear to float above the floor of the car making it look like a spacious car. This version of the car was developed by the company to make loading and entering the car as simple and convenient as possible for the riders in the car. This version uses a supercharged MINI Cooper S engine making it a fun car to ride.
