Motivation or Torture

I'm not sure if this is good motivation or just torture...

I have a poster picture of that exact same car on the wall next to me right now.

I bet it sounds even better than it looks.

Business is obviously going well at MovieCollector. Alwin, the beers are on you at ESWC. ;0)

It occurs to me that it probably says something about my character that, given 3 gigantic photos of an Aston Martin and a discrete link to A/B test results, I am immediately interested in the A/B test results.

@Javier:
You're in luck, I'm as bald as a billiard ball :-)

I'm sure it's a nice car (100% sure)

It's funny though about these cars; I was following a smoking fine Maserati out of a parking garage in Monaco 2 weeks ago and he had the same problem as I did, slowing down to a crawl for every bump in the road, turn on the street, cars too close on both sides, etc., etc. 

However, I'm guessing that when he (and his lady friend) got out of town and onto the twisties, their drive was substantially more fun than mine :)  And I had plenty of fun in my diesel Golf.

Oh, and one more thing, that was one COOL sounding car - if Italians knew nothing else about cars, their exhaust systems make me cry (tears of joy) every time I see one of their cars (or motorcycles!)

Have you ever heard the gearbox on a Ducati? It sounds like a washing machine full of spanners. They do look gorgeous though.

What was the t-shirt :

"Ducati - turning riders into mechanics since 1969"

something like that.
