Nice!   That is a better value than a performance at the Boston Opera House and a stay at the Ritz Carlton.

Sure enough, but the "A" class?

If you go the U.P. during deer season you will see a few like this crawling out of the swamp onto the highway.

I always thought an old airstream would mount up behind a B model cab pretty nice. image.jpg.988bb63530c6aac20de1fe6548dc30e7.jpg

The Ritz does have valet service though....

Yeah and the Ritz Laguna Nigel is gonna have cable TV so I can watch "Ice Road Truckers."  (No not really...)  But at least I can have carrot ginger soup, truffle chimichurri, and morita glazed pork belly with my Christmas dinner.   And of course the Candied Pomegranate with my desser.

So with a 20% tip and if you stiff the valet, a famiy of 4 could eat dinner for about $600.00.  Yikes!

It's not all that nice. The engines are very tired and there is no place to run it near us in Va, so I will probably strip the engines and gauges out and put it in the corner of the barn.

That Scarab looks pretty nice.  I bet that thing can move out, tired engines or not!

Nice ride. It could be the fastest runner on Lake Anna. There's big money in moving product from louisa to Spotsylvania dont'cha know.

Seriously, I bet you couldn't run more than a few miles anywhere on the coast without the Coast Guard taking an interest in you.

Don't let the liberals know, they'll want to take them away. 

Thing of the inventory luxury tax they could come up with? You'd end up floating the toy hanger on a barge in international waters.

Up on Long Island we'd come out of Port Jefferson Harbor and head west  dead center of the Long Island Sound wide open and always pick up a Coast Guard or County heli following us for a bit. The Donzi we had was worse, we could out run the Coast Guard heli on smooth water. Sweet 16 Donzi repowered from a 318 to a 440. Jacuzzi jet drive, 574 h.p. in 16 feet of glass, good for a radar clock 119 mph.  Good toy until we hit a foam lobster buoy at  speed and punched a big hole in the hull. Made big turns at  speed and ran it on the beach in Mount Sinai Harbor

My wife says I'm an Adrenalin junkie. I figure I  just don't enough to pay for my sins.  I keep cheating the reaper since 1971 .
