    Here are some before and after shots of my collection with the new additions that Gus gave me... One of the coolest things i now own as an original, actual, real shift knob from a Ferrari... The one he gave me is the one from his car; it's the one that came with the car from the factory... Very cool stuff... Other shots include other parts of my collection...

    One of these days i'll sit down and take a picture of every car individually and post all of those pictures... :D

    Thanks a lot, Gus...!

    Pictures 3 and 4, what are the Indy/CART cars? What scale? Though not real expensive or exclusive, I like the small Bburago ones, also.

    Thanks, Chris... That's the 1:24 scale F40 that Gus gave me... i have a pretty awesome 1:24 collection... Not big, but very select...


    Yes, Red, i'm still in the market... Got your IM yesterday, but by the time i responded, you were gone... Get anything else in yet...?


    Thanks, Jerry, Gus & K5... Hey, K5, i'll take some detailed snaps of the GT1 and post them next week...


    Next week, i'll also be posting before and afters of my literature collection - wait 'til you see the stuff Gus gave me in the way of books, magazines, articles and brochures...! i could put Barnes & Noble outta business...!!!

    Mule, those cars are either 1:24 or 1:18, i'm not sure; they don't say and it's hard to tell with F1 cars...

    Those are actually really rare cars (to me, at least)... There used to be a candy store (now out of business) in a mall not too far from here; they used to have this small, nondescript, turning shelf of smaller scale cars that they sold... Not their money-maker, by any means... Just something to make the parents spend more money when the little kids saw it... However, i always went in there and checked the shelves to see what they had; i actually picked up some pretty cool stuff from, like a 1:24 Murcielago among other things... But i also got those race cars from them... i'm pretty sure, whoever makes those racecars, made them in a set of 6; i bought them one at a time and i only have 5... i don't think i'll ever get the last one i need...

    They have two different #1 cars, two different #2 cars and two different #3 cars; i'm missing one of the #3 cars; i have the others... The advertisements on them are fake, i think, the wheels are rubber, the cars are metal; they're just cool, 'cause they're racecars and i like racecars... i've never seen them anywhere else before or since, so they're "rare" to me... Also, they add more color to the "racing dresser" portion the collection... :)

    Holy mother of GOD! You need help, Carbon. You're getting to be like speedy308. LOL!

    I hope your not planning to get your Ferrari "one piece at a time" like the ol' Johnny Cash song. (any members missing a shift knob?)

    I think thats the shift knob.

    NNO, thats a GREAT collection. I wish I had as many as you. I gotta get some more. If you sold all of those you could probably buy a 308!

    Thanks, ETW...

    Omar, ETW is right; it's a shift knob... It's the original shift knob from Gus' 328...
