my dad comes in that gang alright....but i doubt if i could play with the mini 288 GTO, though...the small sucker might be crushed under my 92 kg frame..

but here's an idea; could youse tempt or influence my dad to get me the real thing....? i'm willing to bargain...might settle for a 350Z....LOL...

and yea stratos...nice li'l ferrari..lucky kids...hope they grow up to own the real thing...

p.s- doesn't steeroid bhai come in the 30+ gang..??

Yup, well aware of that!

2005 were still the years when i could safely say i had read each and every post on the forum -- hence i found it suprising i had missed this entire thread.

Also check this out, it was posted somewhere else on the forum but i cannot seem to find it :
