Tuesday Oct. 4th
|The "GANG" out for another day in Venice..
|Great open air markets.
|The classic wooden boats in the canals are beautiful. Even the ladies notice and appreciate them.
|What an elegant lady.
|Two of the many beautiful women in my life.. :)
|I love the classical paintings found all over Venice depicting their culture, history, and religion. This is a painting of "King Glorious the Len"
|I think this is going to be Duane's next riding suite.. Maybe for walking too.
|Human's endless creativity in tools to kill each other with.. :(
|I think this look may work for my next garage??
|Kim is a retired police officer and she is standing in front of a prisoner's box at the Palace of St. Marks.
|I think I have seen enough cruxifications to last several life times..
|I want to be an "ARCH" salesmen in Venice..
|Ferrari's influence is everywhere in Italy!
|Got to have a few gondola photos, right??
|CAR TIME!! Entering the Lamborghini museum..
|This experimental model is called "The Egotista".. For the man who wants to be seen. A single seater hyper car. Must be compensating for something???
|A Muira motor and gearbox. One of my all time favorites!
|One of the all time great designs.. The man who designed this car was 19 years old when he did it. Talk about talent!!
|A Lambo 400Gt. One of the very first cars I professionally restored in the mid 1970s for a customer.
|Always wanted to win an F1 race...
|Elegant car with an elegant woman.. ;)
|About the only Muira I will ever be able to afford.. :(
|Talk about making an entrance.. Pulling up to the Lambo factory in a new Lambo..
|This was a local coffee shop we went to near the factory. You can rent the Lambo outside for only $1100 per hour..
|A quick drive by the Maserati factory.
|I think we are entering the Ferrari side of town..
|Does it get any more Ferrari than this?? A Ferrari sign, a Ferrari worker in uniform, with a Ferrari driving by..
|The parking lot of the Ferrari museum. A few enthusiast here today.
|This is the power train from the new La Ferrari. The basic V-12 motor "only"puts out 800HP so there is an electric motor ( the green add on at the rear) that adds another 160+ HP when you need to pass for a total of 960+HP..
|When you have 960HP you need brakes like these but you probably don't want to be around when the car needs a brake job, which can easily run in excess of $50,000 just for the brakes!!
|The ridiculously complicated steering wheel of a modern F1 car!! What does the driver have to do anymore other than adjust knobs.? ;)
|Her mother must be very proud of her..
|What a nice guy!! Our tour bus driver stopped our bus, got out, and walked this elderly many across the street..
|The original Ferrari factory built by Mr. Ferrari back in the 1950s. Now long since replaced.
|Welcome to Pagani
|Mr. Pagani's first race car he built when he was 19! There is talent and then there is real talent.
|At least we still had enough energy for another night out on the town.. ;)
|Beautiful woman in a beautiful city..
|One more injury for Mr. Tough.
|I don't get it... How could such an elegant woman come from me???
|More ideas for a garage addition..
