well its pretty clever that the garage is low key. With several million dollars of cars inside you don't want it to look like anything more than barn house. These tours probably are not a daily event. My friend has a client that keeps a similar warehouse with 18 cars and a bunch of Ducatis. He just has his license suspended for the second time and his over 65!

that website suggests that the owner may be the person responsible for barcodes - if that's true (which it could be, if it is in fact, chicago) - i may know who that guy is - back in the mid-90's i lived in Ann Arbor, took some time off from school and got involved with a little, but well funded optic's project designing a line of sports eyewear that we had hoped would compete with Oakley, Killer Loop, etc.

we got involved with competitive sailing sponsorship (among other things) and hooked up with this guy out of chicago - he raced a yacht out of the chicago yacht club and had a home and business in the john hancock bldg - he was a real down to earth, modest guy, and only described his business as 'something to do with the barcodes you see on products' - i never probed that far, because we were more concerned with sponsoring his sailing team and spending time at the yacht club. if he's the guy, then i completely blew it! i probably could have scored my first porsche a decade ago

It's Larry Paige, co-founder of Google.

When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Well, it better be.
But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Lots of people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well.
When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

You're right, those lower foglamps, etc. don't look quite like a 308.
