Thanks Doug for providing us with some car porn. Those 12 Webers are pretty sexy.
It's a shame a first year welding student ruined the dream though. Those cross braces look like hell.
lol. looked fine to me.. sort of.
Definitely not the precision crafted german welds-manship
but oh well, you know those optimistic italians, at least they welded it.
it reminds me my first test drive in the quattroporte , i said to the factory PR guy :' Mmmm, that's an interesting position you placed the button for the hazard lights..' ( 'hidden' behind the gear lever and it's inches away from any other buttons)
The guy replied ' Oh, if we put it on the center console,between the vents like mercedes does, there'll be no place left for the quartz clock'
In a Merc, time is very important, it's the function that matters. They place the clock inside the dash and on the sat-nav screen. so you never miss a minute of your precious time.
In a Maser, time is an decorative accessory. they place it on the center console , catchy, good looking, but there's no dial, so you'll never know what time it is when you're having fun.
