Default Great stuff!

Makes us look like a run-o'-the mill, normal, all-in-a-day's-work, sort of bunch. Proof of our sanity, as it were

After all a diy Aleph construction site takes up less space than the diy Merc (or does it )

Anyway, must show this to the wife

Peter, do you start counting from the time you have all the parts in or from the time you 'think' about doing it? For me the problem is not to finish it, is to start it.

The guy that build the mercedes shows a remarkable amount of delusion. Like MrFeedback would say: it's a gold plated turd.
If germans had a sense of humor they would offer him a job at Mercedes.

I didn't know you were building Aleph 4

The guy who built the Mercedes is Polish. The mentality is slightly different over there, the cars are still something to die4.

Even if the Mercedes is "slightly" bigger than an aleph, I think that it still has a better wife acceptance factor


PS: Peter, I changed my mind. Don't build a Mercedes, it's for Gays, build your own McLaren F1
