2012/273: Italian Car Fest (4)

1959 Taraschi Formula Junior

The owner asked Sara if she wanted to sit in the car, but she said no…couldn’t even bribe her with ice-cream!!
Was a shame that it was up on the trailer…certainly would have made for a better picture if it wasn’t.

2011/271: Bonus – The Race

It’s technically cheating, but I’m going to submit this to Scott’s Competition assignment anyway.

This little racetrack (it’s Sara’s) hasn’t seen any action in quite a while, unless collecting dust in a basket on her bookshelf counts 😉
I didn’t want to flake again on Scott’s assignment, and because there weren’t any competitions (that I knew of) around here, I decided it was time to dust off set up the racetrack and pretend there was a race. Pretty sure the orange one is a Mercedes, so of course it won! The Audi fell way behind!

Wouldn’t you know it… Sara saw the picture when I was getting it ready for the blog, and she put the track together and had fun knocking my car off the track with hers (I had fun knocking her car off the track with mine). She even got daddy to get off the couch to race a few laps with her.
So maybe this isn’t cheating after all?

Reminds me of the race track I had as a girl (of course mine was much better quality than this one!). I was probably about Sara’s age, maybe a little older, and I soooo wanted a racetrack for Christmas. My dad had some fun building all kinds of twists and turns, and mounting them on a wooden board, and all I had to do, was put the straight part and one curve together. I remember that Christmas… I had to fight my dad and my uncle for some race time!

2011/267: Italian Car Fest, Part 5 – Best In Show

1966 Ferrari Dino 206sp
Wouldn’t mind taking that one for a spin 😉 While I was there, I overheard someone say that this is a $2 million car!
