A few of the race shops in my hometown opened up their doors to the public today so I went and snapped a few pics. This is only a fraction of what's in my area, all of this is less than a mile from my house.







This Ferarri was being converted to a roadster:






How about a street legal Nextel Cup car?

Interesting tidbit: I was talking to one of the crew guys for the Fram Top Fuel car. He said that in terms of just parts (not travel expenses, crew salaries, shop overhead, etc)...just parts and fuel it cost ~$6000 PER 1/4 MILE PASS to run a Top Fuel car. Season budget is somewhere around $4 million, but he wouldn't be more specific.

God ... I want a new job :( teaching elementary school kids or creating beauties like those? Hell, I'd stab Mikie in the kidney with a dull spoon if it meant I got his job ;)
