That Ferrari F12 looks pretty nice, and affordable too. If you leave off some of the options you might get one for under $500,000. Better hurry though, they only plan on making 7000 per year.  [smile]

Sorry haven't been posting as much as I used to.  So swamped at the shop it's unbelievable.  Not that I'm complaining  ::)

As always, it's more fun to drive a slow car fast, than a fast car slow.  The video gets more and more... um... exciting.  Enjoy!

I could never bring myself to drive a Citroen [eek]

I think Aston Martins are beautiful cars, but a new one in Oz is just insane money (as is a new Ferrari). Anyway, my fav AM would be a DB5.

Sadly I look at cars these days and tend to see the last idiot that was driving that marque!

Stumbled across this little gem the other day looking for some missing cabinet molding.  Homeowner snuck it in before moving into the house.

Sad news:

LITTLE RIVER-ACADEMY (September 12, 2014) A man is dead after an accident at a drag strip racetrack in Bell County, Texas.

The Bell County Sheriffs Department confirms the man lost control of his 2013 GT500 Mustang at the Little River Dragway Friday night.

The man has been identified as Allen Mouton of Killeen, a 48 year old father of 3.

Lt. Donnie Adams of the Bell County Sheriff's Office says the driver was making a single-car run down the drag strip when he hit the guard rail at the halfway point before hitting a tree.

The strip was open for racing tonight.

No other injuries were reported.
