‘Cruise the Web in Style’ Prize Package for Car Lovers

Is your honey crazy for Corvettes?  Does your dad drive a Mustang?  Here’s a gift I bet you haven’t seen anywhere else for the car enthusiast on your holiday shopping list (or maybe you’d like to keep it for yourself)!

Road Mice, Inc. has come out with a wireless computer mouse that is so cool- it’ll have you humming Mustang Sally or Little Red Corvette at your desk.  The headlights even light up as you cruise the web!  They have several makes and models to choose from (check out their website for a 360 degree view of these little gadgets) but have offered either a Mustang or a Corvette to one lucky Books on the Brain reader.  To make it a little more ‘bookish’, I’m adding one of the following books: The Complete Book of Mustang- Every Model Since 1964 1/2 or Corvette Masterpieces to go along with it!  

Leave a comment by Oct. 28th with a car related memory- maybe something about your first car, or your first time behind the wheel, or a Friday night at a drive in movie, or a road trip during college!  Or tell us about something you’ve seen someone do while driving that maybe they shouldn’t have been doing (putting on makeup, or ???)  Let us know if you’d prefer the Mustang prize package or the Corvette prize package.  We’ll let the boys from Road Mice pick the winner.  Good luck!
