I haven't seen this posted, so I thought I'd bring it up for discussion as it's fairly interesting: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=2490204253&category=6212 This is not exactly a Ferrari for timid drivers (not that most timid people would consider a Ferrari): 1000 HP through twin turbos, a conversion to EFI, etc. It's basically a new car underneath. For those who don't know who John Carmack is, he's the lead programmer (and one of the co-owners) of id Software. They're responsible for the Doom and Quake games. He's also the head of Armadillo Aerospace, one of the groups competing for the X-Prize. Basically, he's the penultimate nerd. If it's something he can make faster or a machine he thinks he can do better, he'll work on it.
