    Missed getting 'early entry experience' tickets --- for $35/ea . . . but? . . .

    . . . traffic wasn't that bad --- + my buddy 'DW' was driving, so we could take the 'HOV' (= 'high occupancy vehicle,' aka 'diamond') lane . . .

    . . . and we rolled onto downtown ~8-ish

    Lotsa construction goin' on, thereabouts --- high-/density rise apartments, looks like

    Dropped-in to The Pantry ('est. 1924')for breakfast . . . = two-times:
    ..eggs (over easy)
    ..sausage paddies (massive)
    ..pancakes (ditto)
    ..glasses o' 2%

    (Burp!)

    Paid for DW's, too --- he was driving, after all . . . if I can call it that . . . = ~$40


    Lasted me all day . . .



    . . . 'cept for a 32-oz Dr P that I absorbed at the venue

    Only Ferrari that we saw at the show . . .

    . . . in the lobby --- shilling for a used-car dealer?

    Gack!


    Then/again . . .



    . . . this is the California T, so . . . .

    (Does anyone actually drive these? . . . or any Ferrari, for that manner?)

    . . . '3D Printing'

    'Naked' bike

    Frame, mostly, I think


    No idea if this is a 'real/functioning/useable/actual' device --- no lights, signals, license plate brackets, etc . . or just a bunch o' plastic bits mocked-up to demonstrate what's possible using this technology


    Still --- v kool --- IMO . . . especially that tank!

    . . . more '3D Printing' . . .

    'Naked' car, this time


    K --- now THIS comes across as a somewhat more thought-out + developed + involved + put-together kinda project . . . looks like metal bits connected/bonded w/ CF tubing. And just check-out that suspension . . . no Blacksmith cutting tubes to fit, here = CAD-happy or what?

    Dunno what the costs are of this kind of approach . . . + I don't see anything like impact bumpers or crush-zones or . . . so --- maybe this just some 'blue-sky' technology demo? --- to attract attention/business/FaceBook likes? . . .

    . . . sure got mine . . .


    . . . but seeing this kinda elaborate/intricate/beautifully-executed stuff done by a small-time company . . .


    . . . = pretty d@mn exciting

    LEGO-Porsche? . . .

    Porsche's current racers take more-than-a-little getting used-to, looks-wise . . . not pretty --- IMO




    . . . think that the 3D Printing Guys could help out a little, here?
