The sale of my Magno figures contributed to my buying "Priss". That's what I call my car. The Purple Emperor Prototype was the centerpiece of my magno collection for a long time.
My car, a 1972 AMC AMX Javelin is Plum Crazy Purple. The female to Emperor is Empress. Priss for short.
And it has more in common with the Magno figures than I thought. The seat belts when not in use are held in place in the centre console by...Magnets.
Having bought the car last fall, I didn't get the opportunity to enjoy it. It didn't feel like my car.
It does now. While I do miss my figures, I have no regrets. This is my dream car. From the moment I sat in one when I was 17. I have to be careful though. This car has the 401...a beefed up 390 on steroids with a Carter 625. It may be an automatic, but its a monster. The 4 barrels kicking in at 60 MPH...I leave my tires on the road. And the car is very light. 3000 lbs and a short wheelbase.
