Some crazy chit here and one act of sacrilege.
There is a very fine line between a hobby and a mental illness.

Does the need justify the want ? Or does the want suffice?

Way cool but which one is sacrilege?

The Citroen was my first guess but I am thinking the Chevy in the Ferrari

I'm still wondering how badly those diesels are mashing the shit outta the suspensions on those little shitbox cars   :eek:
Started with nothing and still have most of it left.

When did the American Dream become an entitlement program?

I like the V12 tractor

Yeah definitely built for the mini rod series. However not around here, there limited in cubes.
