    (linux_pro @ Feb. 20 2005,15:12) Sounds as if this Brioni you described falls into a simliar category (although possibly an Ahmish used-car salesman?).
    I grew up amongst the Amish, and never met one that sold cars.
    Uhm... maybe used horse buggies? And did someone say there is a quilt museum? Is this true? Is it a sort of art gallery / quilt museum?

    Actually I knew a few that sold used farm equipment. Funny story, last year they nabbed an Amish guy in Goshen, Indiana, for setting up a global scheme where he was somehow moving money around the world and ripping people off. What's funny is he was driving a Mercedes and a Porsche, both purchased with cash, and the AMISH DON'T DRIVE. Could the guy be just a bit more obvious. As for quilting, it indeed is a very fine art. My grandmother has done some fabulous quilts over the course of her life. Now she is 96 and her fingers are too arthritic to permit her to quilt anymore, but quilts are a wonderful indigenous American art, just like jazz, blues and bluegrass. Grandma and some other ladies once did a quilt with some kids from a nearby school that had the words 'We the People on it," as tribute to the 200th anniversary of the Constitution. The kids went to the White House and presented it to President and Mrs. Reagan. I think it is in the Reagan Library now.
