My really Kewl gift.

My dad gave me this very wonderful Christmas present. This is a torch that was used in the 2006 Torino Olympic Games. It did not come with a stand. So I took it to a friend and we opened it up. The gas line seems to have been purposely cut, probably for custom requirements when exporting or when bring it on a plane. The serial number is also stamped inside. However after an email exchange with the manufacturer, Pininfarina, I was able to obtain one. It arrived and I am now displaying it in our front entry way. I guess this is as close to a Ferrari as I will ever come. Siobhan, is not sure whether it can stay but does say it needs a spot light! Thanks dad!
