    Cool cars are always a good legacy to leave behind.


    Another famous innovator from Salzburg, like Mozart. I was watching TSOM on ABC Family over the weekend. Such a beautiful place.

    May Mr Porsche rest in peace. If he lived in Salzburg, he was living in a peaceful paradise. I saved and went to Salzburg years ago, way back when the dollar was stronger and air fares were cheap. I've never been in a prettier place. And I did the Sound of Music tour. I know it wasn't some chic thing to do in Europe, but it was fun. I also went to a nearby salt mine and slid down this huge slide to the bottom. Now that was unusual.

    RIP to the designer of my dream car.
