Anyway... ROM? :D The answer REAL!

ok, now that George has woken me up again...

The vote was close for a while, but you guys pulled it out in the end! It's REAL... but it's not the real car!

The car is the 1909 "Blitzen Benz" (Lightning Benz), and it held the world speed record for 10 years or so. However, this photo is of an exact replica of the original car(s). It's not the original, but is is 1:1, and it really runs, so it's REAL!

Here's the whole story:

Next ROM coming Monday!
