Working Projects

These are 2 working projects on my plate.  Both will receive the Big Engine Out Service which will be detailed here in the future.  I am hoping there will beno big surprises but will be worthwhile fun and interesting adventure to say the least.  Can’t wait to dig in and get started!

Side by Side Comparison of the Ferrari Testarossa Luggage Set and the Ferrari 512TR Luggage Set

The Ferrari Testarossa first appeared on in the USA  in 1985 starting with the 2 year only Flying Mirror version and subsequent variations after that.   Overall the Testarossa model  was produced from 1985 to 1991.   During these production years, Ferrari offered custom fitted Testarossa luggage by Schedoni.    Some would say the Ferrari 512TR model is just a continuation of the Testarossa but I think the 512TR should be considered a separate model all together due to the enormous number of changes and improvements made on these cars for 1992 through 1994.    Many believe the luggage found in both the Testarossa and 512TR are the same but are in fact very different.

One of my favorite cars of all time is the E30 BMW M3. A famous car tuner called AC Schnitzer modified these cars to be better than stock. I have always loved their wheels and their tasteful designs for their cars.

Here are some posters that were from the 1990s that I would love to get my hands on again.

Road Trip 2017: Hunting for Classic Cars | Days 4 -8

Road Trip 2017: Hunting for Classic Cars | Days 4-8

Ashland, Oregon is a really quaint small town.  It holds an annual Shakespeare Festival with 2 million visitors.   The whole downtown area has construction going on for this event.  As an Los Angeles resident , it amazes me how friendly everyone is.   I guess we are just jaded coming from LA.    We next drove to Portland, Oregon and spent a few days there to check out the city.  We hit all the tourist land markets:  Voodoo Doughnuts, Chinatown, Powell Books, Nike, Lake Owego, Mother’s Restaurant, Downtown Food Carts, etc.   It was alot of fun.   After a few days of Portland , we were ready to take the 4 hour drive to Seattle, Washington.   While Portland had a more small town feel, Seattle felt like Los Angeles.   It rained the whole time but it was a city I could see myself living in.
