    Thoroughly enjoyed watching that (albeit very short) interview segment with Mr. Caiola -- that gentleman is a HOOT!! Would love to meet him in person! He's obviously really loving life.

    He's my new hero too :D Especially enjoyed some of his comments regarding his Ferraris, the event, and the track....for example:

    "I actually own 9 360's...because I wanted one in every color..."

    "I've been tracking my cars now for 4 days here...the only times I came in to the pit were because I ran out of gas..."

    "I raced all these guys here this week...and I beat them all!"

    He even left Mr. Barry M. a little speechless...gotta love it.

    I was rolling on the floor during the interview. It's very refreshing to see a man his age who is so successful and living life to the fullest!

    Martin, this segment "Crazy Cars" will apparently be run several times over the weekend. As a family member (Benny's nephew) his cracks about my grandfather were hysterical (and very true). As a staunch hard-headed immigrant, my grandfather (RIP) wouldn't even buy any of his kids a bicycle. Benny claims he built his own, out of wood. Family legend has it that one of my other uncles, at the age of eight, went up on a mountaintop and sold his soul to the devil in order to get a bicycle! Very colorful relatives I have!

    I have known Mr. C for a long time and always enjoy seeing him. He is one of the true bright spots in the hobby. When does this air again?
