Lamborghini in a Basement

I first read about this in Jalopnik.com and since then it has spread like wild fire across automotive pages on the net.

The story goes, Ken watched Cannonball Run in 1985, feel in love with the Countach and set off on a journey to hand build his own Countach. In the end he had to knock his basement wall out to remove the car from the basement, where it was built.

I can't do justice to any of this story or those written all ready so go to Ken's personal website and read all about a man and his dream to build the car of his dreams. Oh, and he is a Wisconsin native which was nice to read. That means there is a good chance I'll get to see this car in the future. I sure hope Ken hits some car shows around Southern Wisconsin!

Well done, Ken, well done.

Rainy Friday

Nothing new in the world of Willie's. Just work, work, work. Most of the projects and toys are tucked away for winter. All though if we do have one nice day they could be yanked out fast. So, watching it rain and waiting on parts might as well watch one of the best car chases ever

Top Gear US

Some time in the near future it will get here. I'm hoping the US version is as well done as the UK version.

If you don't know what Top Gear is check out BBC America or browse the website linked.

Lego Cars
































So when the rain and cold weather come in, and there are no projects to play with in and around the shop and you need something to do nothing beats LEGO's.

The Camaro MOC I did and the 60' MOC Troy did. I'm working on a TrailBlazer right now for the boys. They need all the vehicles to get to travel around their little City we have built for them.
