Wow, that's impressive.

I assume the engine runs on wood alcohol?

It looks to me that someone way too much time on their hands. It is, I have to admit, beautiful.

I wonder, too. I'm guessing 1500-2000 hrs.

Back in the '60s, I recall seeing a 1/12-scale model of a Ferrari done by a machinist - everything worked, as I recall.

Hi Gene,

I tried to sell it to a workmate (Italian descent) whose cousin owns two restaurants. LOL

The cousin paid 10/15000 for a genuine Ferrari motor from a wreck which he has mounted in a display case in the restaurant.

Very Nice......

Well then James, the wood one would have been a steal, huh? He should have bought it.
Needs one for both establishments.
