A Shiny Thing archetype-- it exists only to compel & look cool and pulls it off really well.

I think I want one.

Good stuff!



Here is the first mockup of my Porsche 4 cyl coffee table. It's now in the paint stage!


You can also see my early "Sport seat" desk chair behind it!

Cool2

I'm thinking these made into candles "Mandles" would be way cooler on the kitchen island than her Girly candles

I remember when mortals like myself could stand next to cars like that . Occasionally even touching them .

This is one of my best friends in his 550A Spyder at an autocross in the mid-1970's. I think he paid around $4500 for this car in 1973 and he sold it in 1978 for $6800. I could have bought it from him for $6000. It is 550-0113 and its worth somewhere around $1.2 million today.
