This is the ultimate gift for any Ferrari owners out there. This guy made a replica engine in wood. Pretty cool!!!

Time to shell out some greenbacks!!!

Thanks Dennis -
I though it would be really cool to tell the ladies in Venice that you are going to pick them up in your ferrari, and bring them to the canal instead of the street.

I’ve seen where this same guy did a cinderally carraige (Boat) with horses as well

Holy crap, that is dead sexy! I have been a Ferrari lover since I was a little kid. It’s the first car marque I lusted after. I’ve driven some very fast cars (faster than Ferraris), but have yet to drive a Ferrari.

If you could get this thing to turn over, I bet the resonance wouldn’t be quite the same as the real thing… probably more like an oboe than the wailing V12 acoustic symphony of the real thing.

MedicKen… that was too funny! This is definitely a dyno queen-type piece!
