    In the earlier episodes of Home Improvement was that a Ferrari wheel on Tim Alan's wall during the "Tool Time" segment? If so, I remembered seeing the Ferrari emblem in the center of the wheel, where today there is nothing.

    Whats the story behind that? Why is the Momo wheel void of a prancing horse? Anyone know?

    The original episode was Tim got that as a present from Jill (his wife on the show) It was Andretti's steering wheel from what i remember. It was a D formula wheel.

    Ferrari might have not given them rights or something...or maybe someone stole it off the set ;)

    True the wheel is still on the wall it is just void of the yellow insert. If there was a legal reason, why keep the wheel up? why not take the whole thing down.

    He also had models there in the living room. A yellow 348 and a red TR I think.

    Tim Allen is a car guy, apparently has had a few Ferraris. I respect his turnaround from being a coke dealer.

    Yeah, it saw it on TV, and he even talks about it briefly in his book, Don't Stand too Close to a Naked Man. IIRC it was before his break as a standup comic.

    Excerpted from www.IMDB.com :

    ...he attended Western Michigan University and graduated with a degree in Television Production in 1975. In 1978, he was arrested on drug charges and spent two years in jail. Upon his release, he had a new outlook on life and on a dare from a friend started his comedy career at the Comedy Castle in Detroit...
