    So here's the deal with the "get the Wizard a microphone" comments. After a few years of trial and error on sound recording, I no longer trust wireless microphones. Since I don't have someone behind the camera, or a sound guy listening for issues, there's too much risk of a video getting ruined by audio issues-- which has happened so many times in the past. Currently I put a sound recorder in my pocket that's wired directly to the microphone.
    It takes longer to edit this way, but the difficulty would go up by over 9000 if I had to jump back and forth syncing and editing between 2 microphones. So when I film with the wizard, I try and stay close to him, and I turn up the sound level to MAX when he speaks. It doesn't help that he's also pretty soft spoken. I'm sorry, but this is as good as it's going to get without someone helping me film, and the cost and effort of that is NOT worth it.
    Also, I didn't actually mean to hang up on him, as I thought the conversation was over-- and called him back after I finished the video. I love that man!

    Wasn't a Ferrari from that time suppose to have 3 different leaks at a time?

    I'm surprised no one made cocaine jokes. I expected at least a line of them.

    I owned a Testtrossa in 1992, and even THEN the car had to warm up before it found a good idle. So, that is NOT a flaw, it is a design element. Also, in 1992, the 12,000 mile service cost me $12,000. So, if it is $8k today, be happy.

    It could be worse, you could have a roof on your doors and have to crawl inside.

    I guess the nice blue Corvette had to go because there was no suitable YouTube drama to be made from it. On the other hand, a 30 year old car that needs an engine-out service every three years should offer limitless potential for hilarity and viewer witticisms.

    Sounds Italian alright, designed to run in warm to moderate climate. I'd take Jay Leno's advice of letting it warm up until the temp gauges moves off the peg before pulling away.
