MY MIAMI VICE FANTASY LIFE

I love the fantasy aspect, the clothes, the cars, the music....it affects some differently. I am a super fan.

 

Those navy top gun instructors used to see all the flaws in the movie TOP GUN, and pointed out how unrealistic it all was, and what would never happen.....yet they all LOVED IT ANYWAY! I metal detect too! What's your make and model of detector?

I like Bounty Hunter units, and have a pair of Tracker II detectors and an older model 2D-707. I gave my BH Landstar to my Dad a few years ago and for last Christmas got him a Pioneer 505. Now I've retired I'm trying to decide on a new, more professional unit, and am torn between the Whites DFX or MXT and the Minelab XTerra. What detector do you swing?

Hey guys, I metal detect too. I haven't had any major finds, but I have found a lot of wheat pennies, Mercury dimes, a few Indian heads, a buffalo or two, and tons of clad. I also found a couple of gold rings that fetched me a hundred bucks or so each. My friend and I found a gold clad pocket watch that had a inscription in it. It was given to a man for fifty years of Sunday School service. The kicker? It was presented to him back in 1928! We tracked down the owner's descendants in a small nearby town and even had two newspapers pick up the story. We even found the original owner's tomb in that same small town. Do you guys read Easter and Western Treasures magazine?

I have read Eastern and western treasures, and treasures magazines. Thery are getting hard for me to find without subscribing. Even my detector shops won't carry them.

I haven't sold any jewelry, mostly I take a photo and then give it away to family or friends. I've returned a few rings too, one was a 1/4 carat engagement ring to a college student that I would have liked to keep...... but you can't if you ID the owner! Cause we're the good guys! I'm chompin' at the bit to start hitting the beaches regularly!!!Oh, and I read Lost Treasures magazine myself. ;)

Just read through all the posts on this thread.I am definately stuck in the 80's. Obviously from miami vice. But the whole era. And the music. Don't get me started on that. A great deal of new music is remixes and sampling from the 80's. Or maybe I'm just getting old:D. Like most here I to am living my bit of Miami Vice. Sure my ferrari is a Nissan 300ZX. And the clothes are copies or as close as I can get. I buy rayban replicas for the reason that I either loose or break them. But in the end as long as you are a decent person, comfortable with your life and true to who you are and follow your dreams then your pretty successful.Maybe I'm getting off topic now. But thanks for the posts on this thread. Hope more members post their bit of the "Miami Vice" life.

Thank you for posting aussiefan! Your right, it's more important to be a good person, and replicas are pretty cool if you ask me! There's nothing wrong in the way one chooses to honor, or express MIAMI VICE, or what is right for you. Some choose to wear raybans, others do not. Some like wearing linen sportscoats, others do not. You don't have to have the stuff to be a fan first and foremost. Just be the fan YOU want to be! That is ALL that matters. :clap:

I obtained more "VICE" things. After acquiring these items, I started to look at these things and thought.....really, what the hell am I doing? Why am I spending all this money for Miami Vice type things? I really must be obsessed with this show. Perhaps I should slow down and take it all in.

 

This is nuts. What am I doing?

 

I never listen to myself.

 

MIAMI VICE FOREVER!!!! :thumbsup:

Today, and this week, I'm going to FORCE myself to wear a white blazer. You see, I'm self conscious about wearing white blazers, as it's the most recognizeable color for Crockett to wear, and it REALLY stands out. I always think that it draws too much attention, and people might associate the jacket with Sonny Crockett and comment with some stupid comment.

 

I usually avoid wearing that color blazer because of feeling self conscious, however, Easter was yesterday, it's April, It's spring.....If I'm going to wear it, it's got to be now. Today, I'm FORCING myself to wear a white blazer. I'm wearing it in public with the mind set, "I'm wearing it, and I don't give a damn anymore." They say if you want to break yourself of a fear, then you must face it head on. No matter how comfortible I get, I will force myself to wear it.

 

I wore it in public for about 2 1/2 hours, and you know what, when I entered stores, the employees welcomed me, and asked if there was anything they could do to help me. The response was great. I was treated well, and nobody made any negative comments, or said anything about MIAMI VICE. I think I'm going to like this experiment! :thumbsup:

Today' date=' and this week, I'm going to FORCE myself to wear a white blazer.[/quote']STOP THE PRESSES, WAIT! I thought the rule was after Memorial Day (early May sometime). You're from west of the Mississippi though, the rules change out there. I'm not an authority though, just want you to be fashion-safe.

Gah - Labor Day comes before Memorial Day, 'L' comes before 'M'. Whoops! Hey, I can't edit posts anymore, what gives!Come to think of it, Easter pretty much is the pastel holiday, with all those blues, pinks and yellows.. I think by May I'll feel safe putting away the rest of my winter duds. Busted out some yacki khaki trousers today for the first time this year - preppie mode. All I need is a big "U. of MV" crest to sew on my blazer, or maybe two big M.V. varsity letters to sew on a varsity jacket. Come to think of it Coop, I think a man of your pedigree would be suited for the first ever MV Varsity Jacket, make it happen and take some pics!

I've already designed it, and have a maker lined up. Drat! Busted before I even had it made. :)

 

I think you know me too well cageyJG. :clap:

One of the items was sent to me longer than I expected, as it wasn't sent on time. It's still not here. The other items are here now, I just wanted to take some shots with a display case, but I guess I can add that picture at a later time when I get the display case which I have yet to order.

 

These items are just like items featured in MIAMI VICE, just not the actual physical items themselves. They are all things you've seen before, ...but now I own them for my collection. I'm obsessed with MIAMI VICE.

It immediately makes me want to quote Tubbs in the episode RED TAPE, before he goes agro in the bank:"So...this is your display case?!"A Vice fan? Me? Nahhhh...
