After visiting Jay Leno a couple of years ago, I returned home so embarrassed at my level of ineptitude that I dismantled my sputtering lawn mower in a bid to fix it. By the time I finished, it sounded like a Sopwith Camel in the process of being shot down.
If Jay Leno had this problem, he’d build a new lawn mower, smelting his own ore for the block and crafting the handle from the skids of a surplus military helicopter. The final product would put down 83 hp and be called the Blind Monk, after the sightless holy man who achieved transcendence while jetting the carburetor.
9,769 original miles. Ain't that a shame? One of the coolest cars Ferrari made... and in 45 years it's been enjoyed less than a skateboard.
Howard O'Flynn was the original owner of this magnificent Daytona. O'Flynn was in banking in New York and one of Enzo's first US clients. O'Flynn stored the car in New Jersey until 1988. He then moved the car to Texas where it remained until being sold in 2011. The car is complete with the complete factory tools and kit, original yellow felt Ferrari dusting cloth, Ferrari 365 GTB/4 original owner's manual and service manual.
a Vincati (all Ducati 750 SS/Vincent 1000cc engine)
The first Vincati was reported by the Australian Motorcycle Action in October 1975, and it was put together by Max Johnson.
In 1972, Johnson was looking for a Vincent but first found a Vincent engine installed in a racing car.
He acquired it and started his quest for frame parts, and the idea of the Vincati simply came as he was assisting a friend in repairing his Ducati 750. He assessed that the Vincent Twin would fit quite well in this chassis and that it would also be a much easier to find a wrecked bike on the market.
After about three years of intensive work including the mock-up, rebuilding the engine and finally assemble the bike, the Vincati was ready and made its first apparition during one of the VOC outing.
Phil Irving, co-designer of the Vincent, was there and made the following comment ‘It almost looks as if it grew there.’ reported AMA, which also commented that ‘Phil Irving was not partial to the many variations and hybrids of the traditional Vincent, these faint words of praise indicate he was not unpleased with the Max Johnson version.’.
According to an arrest affidavit, Adalberto Aponte, 53, said he got into a verbal disturbance that ended when Zach Waring placed his pickup truck into reverse and backed up onto Aponte’s Camry.
Waring told police that Aponte had been driving recklessly since he appeared behind Waring's truck. Waring said Aponte almost caused multiple crashes, and when he reached a red light at the intersection of Southwest 42nd Street and Southwest 27th Avenue, Aponte got out of his Camry, walked directly to Waring's open driver's window and "began to strike him in the face through the window multiple times," police said.
The victim's girlfriend yelled that there was a gun in the truck when Waring was unable to stop Aponte from punching him, a report states. There wasn't a gun in the pickup truck, police said.
According to the report, Aponte said, "I'll show you a real gun."
Waring told police that he feared for his life and his family and "had no other option but to place his vehicle in reverse and hit Aponte's vehicle in an attempt to prevent him from obtaining a firearm and causing further harm to him or his family," a report states.
Police said the red light prevented Waring from driving forward through the intersection in an attempt to leave the argument.
Witnesses to the road rage incident were able to confirm Waring's statements, police said.
