So for those of you who didn’t notice (i.e. you only read your RSS feed) I updated the look of the site again with a new theme. I kinda like it. We’ll see how it looks for a while. I was inspired for the change by seeing this:

'63 Ferrari 250 GTO - Front.jpg

I mean, how many times in your life are you going to get to see a ’63 Ferrari 250 GTO in person. These things sell for literally millions of British pounds. The last one sold at auction brought in 12 million.

We saw it when we stopped to buy a soy latte on the way home from the Warrior Dash. Random turn into La Grange, TX, plus a stumble through town looking for anything that resembled a coffee house. We found one, and as my partner went in to get the drugs, this pulled up outside the shop. Turns out the guy and his wife were there for the same thing we were.

He’s apparently owned it for almost thirty years, and says it does 170 easy. I’m totally jealous, but wow! This is a beautiful car, and probably a once-in-a-lifetime experience to see one up close and personal.

I’m calling it a #win.
