Obviously the car and the photos are wonderful.
But above all, the house looks fantastic, and touches the Architect that I am. Is it a happy combination of old and new ?

This is the only house we ever owned where we took our ideas, sat down with an Architect and blended both idea sets together to come up with what you see in the picture. We lived for 6 years in SE Asia and used that experience to set the tone for the house. We call it our Texas Hill Country "Bali House". Stone, wood, fire and water set the stage throughout.

Our Architect said he had a lot of fun designing it.

All I've done is add my grandfather to Petunia. He now flanks Bony on the back glass. Grandpa Jack did 52 years with LAPD.

...and I finally got my Gulf/Livery edition..... had my 1969 Honda Z50 done in the color scheme :)

Good news! Swapped in a brand new red top Optima and gauges have been running great again. Older battery was testing fine, but decided to pro-actively replace, and voila, the gauges have been good, whereas they had recently been behaving sporadically.

My Gas Guage has been stuck on 1/2 tank for the last couple drives, thought it could be the battery. Will change it most definitely :)

Went to Cars and Coffee near Nashville, Tn yesterday and there was a big turnout given the temps were in the low 30's in the early morning. But the sun came out and it turned into a really nice day. Photo of the Ferrari parked next to mine. I helped guide him back when he was parking to ensure the Ford was ahead by a nose!

Scuderia is a nice car, and have thought about buying one.....but you are WAY ahead in every respect not just parking

And this is a good picture that shows that the Ferrari Rosso Corsa is a horrible shade of red IMO....too much of an orange tone. Ford got that right too, a good shade of red.

Had a large refresh service at Elite Autos Including new wheels and tries, AC recharge, oil line replacement, etc. So far 2900 miles in 5 months of ownership. It's been fantastic.
