In case you can see what people purchase when using your Amazon link, the guy who bought all the Lego is me. The Lego Speed Champions purchases might have been a give away. Their new Countach will eventually be parked next to last year's Ferrari. If only Volvo was cool enough to be desirable as a Lego set.

I’ll try but it’s hard to keep them in the rear view mirror or a pic

My sons grew up on LEGO like I did. My now 25 yr old is very proud of his Saturn V rocket complete with lunar module, flotation balloons, and frogmen. It has to sit horizontally on a long shelf.

I'll bet that much plastic cost almost as much as the actual car.

I've been re-reading Bukowski's Ham on Rye. It's sad, funny, blunt look at his life growing up.
Ham on Rye is a 1982 semi-autobiographical novel by American author and poet Charles Bukowski. Written in the first person, the novel follows Henry Chinaski, Bukowski's thinly veiled alter ego, during his early years. Written in Bukowski's characteristically straightforward prose, the novel tells of his coming-of-age in Los Angeles during the Great Depression.

If you're over 25, you likely know if you like Bukowski or not. If you do, and you haven't read this, I suggest it. A friend of mine (about 15 years older than me) in NYC knew Bukowski. My friend was a magazine editor in NYC in the 1980s, and Bukowski wrote a piece or two for him. My friend flew to LA to meet him, and he spent a few hours in Bukowski's famous apartment.

Bukowski is the only poetry I can read. I have a couple poetry books of his: Play the Piano Drunk Like a Percussion Instrument until the Fingers Begin to Bleed a Bit, Tales of Ordinary Madness, and Notes of a Dirty Old Man.

If you've got the cojones to title a book "Play the Piano Drunk Like a Percussion Instrument until the Fingers Begin to Bleed a Bit", I'm going to read it.
