Race Car

Whenever we go in the Home Goods Store, I bring my camera. This is because they usually have one huge, showy, and terribly expensive item in the front of the store. This month it was an old fashioned race car. In fact, they had two of them. I asked Phil to pose with one.


It looks like a replica recently made, except the front tires are worn! Stlil, Phil thinks they are prototypes. It costs $1,000.

Love the quotes and the pictures. The car is pretty cool. Does it have a motor in it so that it actually runs or is it just for show?

Very cool looking car. Can it actually be driven, or is it just a showpiece?
