Olav, your friend Balboni is a fine driver and great guy, those Lambo cars he is in charge of testing just don't go fast! Remind him of a silver 993TT (see my avatar) who beat him on the Bahrain F1 track by a few seconds a few months back

Everyone has an off day once-in-a-while

When you drive Lambos everyday, do you remember the good days, or the off-days?

I could be wrong, but if your driving a Lambo...and your not in the ditch, in the wall, or against another car....it would have to be a good day...

Ahhh...that's an old one, too. 6 volt or 12? My dad has a '65. It's a real conversation piece on the road and at the gas station.

Heh, thanks

It's a bit of a cheat - a '64 body on a later chassis. Everything 12v.. I built it myself from a bare shell. Didn't paint it, but did everything else. Wish I had a workshop now so I could do some work on the 911 - miss playing with the spanners

My sister used it for her wedding, too...

Motion,

That's a great shot.

I see from the reflection in you glasses how you took it too.

Thanks for sharing.

Here are three of my pride and joys.

This is a great thread, at least when it's on topic, let's keep it going.

hey Motion.. how many tries did it take you to get that shot? Ortega and camera shots like that are pretty tricky.
