Mr. Nova looks a tad...umm...feminine with the scarf and over-belt thingie.

But Mr. Nova is a total FOX (isn't that the "hot" of the 70's?)

mixette said...

Oops. Maverick is the FOX!

haha, well it seems maverick is the favorite :)

personally roadrunner was my favorite, something about the helmet I think, although I think he'd be even more appealing if he was on a scooter instead of that bike!

thanks everyone for your comments - I really appreciate you keep coming back here despite the random types of posts I do!

I vote for Mr. Nova because I drive one. Mr. Nova's sweater would actually match it, too!

He sorta looks like Sean Penn, dontcha think?

Eileen said...

OMG - the first guy, in the red sweater - that isn't - it can't be, can it? Nathan Fillion?
