Feeling Called Love

Just a quick Valentine's Day update to let y'all know about the li'l bundle of joy the stork brought us. Now, this isn't our first one of thesemy buddy CV gave me Boris a few years back and Glendora was an anniversary gift I gave Valerybut this is our first Kustom Kat. Circa 1968, Kustom had these specialty critters produced to promote their exclusive amp coverings—and you can differentiate 'em from yer typical Nauga by the presence of glittery Naugahyde and googly eyes.

We're real happy to have Rémy on board, and we'd like to thank Justin (again) for hipping us to the battered display case this poor guy had been stuffed in.

I've wanted a nauga for a really long time, but I never come across them. My mom had one as a kid, but of course it's long gone.

We've found a few in the wild, but there's been something amiss with those--like they were replicas or made in the 80s (or later) and don't look anything like the earlier versions. The Naugahyde company makes 'em to this day, but the difference in quality and appearance is pretty noticeable.
