|This truck belonged to one of the workmen during our rennovation. He did not understand what I meant when I asked if he ever considered what would happen if he hit a car (like my BMW in the background) broadside.

|One day, while attending a farmer's market in Escondido, I wandered into an antique store. In the back of the shop, under a cabinet, I found this. It's a 1/4 scale Ferrari GTO engine - it's almost 2 feet long! It was one of 500 made by Terzo Dalia from Scandiano, Italy. Unfortunately, it's not one with the complete internals - but who can complain. It sure makes a wonderful display model! Here is a larger photo.
