    So i get home late last night and as i open the first door, something falls over onto my feet...

    i look down and - what's this...? A FedEx package...?

    Hmmmmm... Who's it from...?

    Jim.

    i rush inside, toss my keys, my coat and start cursing at my impatience to get open while i try and find out HOW.

    Finally, i pull the little string thingie and, below the little styrofoam pop corn packing things is a note and 4 NNOs - Actually, to put it how Jim put it - NNNNOs, which i thought was very clever...

    Thanks, a lot, Jim, i really appreciate it...! Your letter's up on my wall along with a bunch of other stuff people have sent me... These will be added to my 1:64 NNO Registry... The one on the wall will be noted that you helped contribute to the registry. Thanks again. :)

    LOL, we have lives...! So what if they're obsessively focused around Ferraris...? :)

    I will insert the obligatory funny Allan comment now:

    "And that's as close as he'll ever come to owning an NNNNNNNNNNNNNNO"

    lol

    Carbonfiber, come on man can you go back to calling it an Enzo please? Why or how you came up with this nonsense is irrelevant, if Montezemolo calls it and Enzo, shouldn't you? :)

    PS - Speaking of hotwheels, my buddy just got his lexan 1:10th scale Enzo body for his nitro R/C car, and it's hilarious. To see that thing whipping down the street at full wail is comedy!

    Do you have any 308's? I would love to have a few to give to kids this summer. Should probably order some eventually.

    If I hear that you were crushed and killed by a giant pile of toy cars... I may smile. And think what a good way to go. :}

    If NNO thinks it looks bad, he should see one in person. His mind will change. I think it look crappy in mags but in video it looks very nice indeed. In person it must look fab u lus!

    Maaco - give it a rest dude. If it bugs you - put him on your ignore list. That way you dont get irritated and we dont have to read about you getting irritated.

    I agree - The last thing we need is an Allan wannabe.

    Very nice Jim - Enjoy NNO - How many do you have now?

    I always love the Maaco reference rodsky, it's much funnier than what these other hacks have tried to do to my handle for a diss. No creativity.

    Like calling the Gallardo the "Gaylardo". Just not funny. I'd go with "Gallarda$$" personally. Now that would be funny and it would play on people's dislike of its rear-end.

    If i think what looks bad...? Certainly not the NNO... It's my favorite car...!


    Mako, no, NNO stays... It's me being creative, just as i was with DES when DES was my user name... Why don't you use it to your advantage and whenever you see it, just say, "That's right, Carbon, you have (N)NO Ferrari... That would be funny; clever, too...

    Thanks, Rodsky... and yes, Jim gesture was very nice...


    Hey, K5mcl, i'm interested in what you have as well...


    Jerry, i'm not sure how many i have no... Some come, some go... i'll have to count them... It's still probably around 80-100... i haven't bought any in a while...

    well, his aren't in good condition, they were kept in boxes loose. Many don't even have paint left, but i will take pix tomorrow and post em up. I'll also take pix of the hot wheels, if you see any you like, you can have them.
