Amazing 1/5th Scale Ferrari 250GTO
Been a while since I posted here. When I've had a few moments of Joe-time lately, I've been pretty busy with my weekly 1/6th photo-comic Minons at Work. If you haven't visited for a while, check it out. New cartoons every week, and we just opened a Cafe Press shop so you can buy Minions at Work shirts, mugs, and other gear.
But I just had a hole open up in my schedule, allowing me a little time to catch up some things. Last year we made a stop in Las Vegas and I got to do a little sight-seeing. While wandering through the Grand Canal shopping area of the Venetian Casino and Resort, I spotted this incredible near-Joe-sized Ferrari in a shop window and took a couple shots. It was late at night, and the shop was closed (things DO close in Las Vegas, despite what they tell you) so I couldn't see the price tag or description. My best guess based on the level of detail and craftsmanship was "if you have to ask, you can't afford it." From what I've been able to find out, that's close. Here are some more details here. 3,600 Euros folks, shipping NOT included. Still, it was cool to see.
