    I certainly appreciate cars. At their best, they are moving sculptures.

    I'm sure you're familiar with Mr. Glickenhaus' latest endeavor yes?

    Yes, we have grown out of touch and I haven't seen him in a while. Last time I was at his place was when he released P4/5.

    I was actually at the Gooding & Co in Scottsdale last Friday (watching not bidding [​IMG] ), there was a lovely 250 GT Lusso there. I managed to somehow completely miss the fact that there was a Miura up for sale until I saw it roll up on-stage. At least I got to stare at the oily bits of an FXX, F40, MC12 and F50 side by side. And I will be damned if the FXX does not sound ferocious.

    Speaking of which there was a lovely Maserati 3500GT that went for a single bid of $50000. Is there something innately terrible about those cars I am unaware of? It was a rather elegant chunk of metal.

    This may be a bit vulgar, but this is what the steering linkage of an unrestored 1962 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Roadster looks like.

    I have some more assorted pics from the auction.
