    Well OK. You see how everything is symmetrical. Victorian rich folks loved symmetry. A house like this would be built on a Grand Avenue. The Walk might be gated or be fronted by an arbor and lead to a Gentle Stoop as if it stepped onto an Avenue, but not always. Think Paris or Park Avenue. The turrets usually served little purpose other then their Elegance . Flat roofs were only utilized in the south or areas without winters, DC, Richmond, Southeastern PA, Savannah GA. Wrought Iron features would have been added at some point. Most homes of this style would typically have elaborate Ironworks on the roofs and gated windows on the basement and first floor windows added in the 20's when the Linbergh baby was kidnapped. The slate on the roof would have been from the Delaware valley. Huge 18" pieces drilled and slotted like a modern shingle. Curved and arched dormers might be used in a commercial or public building utilizing this style. Most buildings in this style would be modernized in the 1920's and altered to appear as another style.

    Haha, yeah, it's looking amazing in some areas.
    Today forecast is around 40cm in my place for the weekend, so no need to get to Switzerland :D

    Why are you stealing all my snow? The North Atlantic Jet Stream seems to have shifted slightly in recent years... It all gets dumped elsewhere before getting to us.

    I can't complain, we are having a great season here too, but not as good as what you are getting!

    My little brother had a 350z and a buddy of mine had a turbo 350z vert, both were amazing to drive. Joe should have gotten the Nissmo 350z, but he wussed out. I used a lot of Nissmo parts on both my '72 240z and my '78 280z back in the day. Their racing division support for the early Z's was amazing. 6-2-1 header, cam, racing springs, front/rear sway bars all from the factory catalog and for cheaper than aftermarket.

    I need to drive one of these for sure, though.

    I would love to build something like this, maybe even LS powered.


    Like a 500hp LS2 :D



    Ass. :rofl:

    like NASCAR; only to the right.


    i'm assuming the derails handle the slack. i'm assuming something actuates the two derails to move the chain away from the tire when you turn the bar to go left.

    The only thing getting a workout are the seams on that t-shirt.

    That is the rear wheel. :eek:

    More importantly, this is also what appears to be a rare picture of the fleeting moment when that drivetrain actually worked.

    Couldn't find another pic of that thing, but I did find this:



    Stupid bikes FTMFW!!

    then why is there a left-hand-drive arrangement going on? is it to drive the front wheel that isn't in the frame of the pheuto?
