    Actually, that looks like a Ferrari trophy. They had one at the Gooding’s auction in Amelia Island. I fell in love with it. Well made very heavy. But it sold for over $20,000. I’ll check to see if I can find a picture

    I don't want to spend $60 to join !!

    Can you buy the 1000 units and we'll go into business when the rest of the Ferrari losers realise this is a great idea :p

    The reality is that after you die nobody gives a **** unless they have to pay for the funeral and then it's "what a cheap bastard he was!!"
    Haha fuchs 'em :p

    I'm actually saving my boy the trouble of driving MY Ferrari out to see me at a grave site :D
