The beautiful handcrafted cars are priced at $9,500 each – roughly the same amount of money that one would have to pay for a complete restoration of the original car.

3,000 hours for the whole process (scanning, molding, etc)? Or to build each one? That would mean 1 1/2 years of 8 hour days.

Oh, where were they made? $3 an hour is big bucks someplace!

Not R E a l Thanx ..

   Hmmmm.. this did not come out as I had planned . I typed it up as I was falling off the cliff . Diagonally across the page descending  both line by line with the first two letters Capitalized and the last two lower case .  "Best laid plans of Mice and Men are oft lead astray"

Everything on this photo says original car owned by Ralph Lauren...I cannot document any model pictures taken by Michael Furman....Anyone help us with facts ?


This is what Michael shoots for a living...real classics

So what you are saying is the photo is the REAL car, not the model. That's the conclusion I get from looking at your links.

Yup, nowhere on the model page does it actually say that the photos are of the models.

So, the best I can tell from looking at the links is that they made models of the REAL car, but the picture shown is of a real car that was used to make a MODEL from, so if I'm not losing the remaining marble, those that said real are correct as the picture is of the real car, not the model? I think that the "article" got Harry this time :P  ;)
