Neko Case's Sextastic Middle Cyclone Hot Rod, Angie Dickinson, Could Be Yours

Buy me!
Do you want this car? Of course you do. The above image is, of course, the cover of Neko Case's Middle Cyclone, and the car is a 1967 Mercury Cougar, made eternally even more badass by the babe with a sword crouching on it. The car is also a babe; her name is Angie Dickinson, and she can be yours--Case is raffling her off for charity.

Neko Case's Mercury Cougar-Rama Muscle Car-Splosion is selling $45 raffle tickets to win Angie--and the raffle's proceeds will benefit the amazing 826 International, Dave Eggers' nonprofit that offers writing courses for kids. The raffle kicks off on Valentine's Day, February 14, and the winner will be drawn on February 18.

Neko and some small friends even made a video explaining the details of the raffle.

In the clip, Neko and her friends sell the car's best features--it's fast, "easy on the gas bill," has a "loveseat backseat for two lovebirds to get close" (ewww!), and it's good for speeding away from zombies.

This is a quality item. But even if you don't win the prize, the raffle includes a few other special items to be won, including:

A drum head signed by the New Pornographers

Neko Case's limited-edition 1966 Gretsch Silver Duke guitar

A Gibson guitar signed by members of the Speaking Clock Revue, including Elton John and Elvis Costello

A Carr Amplifier

Dinner for 10 from Chipotle

A collection of vinyl from Sub Pop including LPs from Fleet Foxes, Thee Oh Sees, the Vaselines

An Adidas prize pack

Buy your tickets & good luck!
