70er Chevrolet El Camino rot [Spielzeug]

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Muscle Car, 28 Dec. 2009
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Welly are well known for producing top quality models.
And this El Camino is no exception.
After trying for several years to obtain one of these in the States,
(and failing)it was great to find one in Europe
If you're into American Muscle,this item is a real gem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good piece of kit, 28 Dec. 2009
I bought these headphones for my wife ,after she tried to buy me some Bose ones whilst on vacation.
Whilst not being able to justify the cost of Bose kit ,which will only get used a max of 4 times a year(flights),these JVC ones seemed reasonable for the wife who can use them at the gym as well as on flights.
The headphones come in a stiff case which protects them well.
The build quality is excellent,with the rotating ear pieces moving smoothly.
The sound quality is great,and there is very little difference when you switch on the noise canceling(unlike some other models i have tried).
The only down side is that the ear cups a little on the small side(or have i just got big ears?).
Overall a good quality item and value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Words are not enough, 26 Jan. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Annoying,tacky,overdone,amaturish, poorly produced oh and annoying.
What am i talking about? Ian Levine? his recordings? Could be.
But in this instance it's those awful visual effects put around every artists on these dvds. They cheapen the performances given by these hallowed artists as do the some of the appalling electronic music used to back said artisits.The miming of some acts is terrible.I personall y think it would have been better to show interviews with the artists whilst playing the original track, but thats jusy my 2ps worth.
BUT IF YOU LOVE NORTHERN SOUL BUY THIS SET.If you never buy anything else in your life again buy this set of dvds.
The memories that the music evoke and the fact that a lot of the performers(some that i have met personally over the years) are now departed,literally brought me to tears.
Putting faces to names of singers whose material i've loved for 35 years, to see the joy in those faces when they realised that they had huge amounts of fans in the U.K. was truly amazing.
The sheer number of classic soul tracks contained in this set is enormous.
Mr. Levine has been critisised by many people(including myself) over the years,and indeed this project could have been done more professionally, BUT, there is no doubt of Ian's love and dedication to the music we all know and love ourselves.
This is shown in the interviews for U.S. t.v. and the obvious pride in accepting an award from the Myor of Detroit.
Thank you Ian for making a grown man cry............
To ALL northern soul fans out there BUY THIS, you won't regret it.
Keep the faith.

Brits Guide to Orlando and Walt Disney World 2001
Brits Guide to Orlando and Walt Disney World 2001

5.0 out of 5 stars If you're a Brit going to Orlando BUY THIS BOOK!, 6 Mar. 2001
This is the second edition we've had of this book, last year it was a present, this year it was the second thing we bought(after the flights). The information is clear and concise and in the ever changing central Florida landscape, it is very accurate. The first time we visited Florida nine years ago we bought loads of guides(Birnbaum's etc.) but they were mostly aimed at domestic tourists,not British,and none were a patch on 'The Brits Guide'. Having read the book cover to cover several times I cannot find any inaccuracies apart from the fact that most restaurant prices are over estimated, which leads to a pleasant surprise when you arrive. If you only buy one travel guide for your vacation make it this one(and if Mr.Veness would like a researcher,I'm at the front of the line).
