Love that Ikea car! Where's the image from? I hear they have a great hi-rise crane kit.

Dave, If it was a convertible, it might be your project!

Hope you're doing well. I'm down in Washington DC this week for a conference. Just ran into some from Austin today! A real Austinite from Del Valle.

Talk to you soon.

Both images came in an email from a friend in Spain.

A hi-rise crane kit? Sounds interesting. Maybe folks could use it to work on our elevators.

Thats great! I have put together some IKEA furniture. The stuff comes together amazingly well given all the pieces. However, this one is more than I am willing to take on... now maybe if it was a A/C cobra I'd think about it. I visited your blog to see what you had on B.D and the pulitzer but landed here. I liked the CNN article for Bob. Go Bob!

Great to hear from you. I put together a big office desk for my wife last summer - over 1,000 pieces. Like a huge jigsaw puzzle, which I used to love doing when I was a kid.

But no, I can't imagine trying to put together an actual car. A Cobra for you? I might be tempted to try a Jag - if it was cheap enough.
