I'm blessed with awesome children, yesterday I went down to the Lego store and bought a $300 Lego Porsche for my son. He's 21, goes to college and holds down a full time job and lately he's been working a string of six day weeks, 10 hours a day and still hitting his classes. This week he's got a few days off from school & work so I took the deep dive as a Dad to show him how much I appreciate his grit and sprang for one of his favorite hobbies...Lego car building. Here's a 1200 piece Ferrari he built a while back. This Porsche kit is a full on car build; you build the engine, working crank shaft & pistons linked to working and shiftable transmission, drive shaft and differential. Steering linkage and suspension. This thing is an awesome piece of engineering. Is it for everybody? Is 1911's for everybody? The red Porsche labelled block on lower left is the 500 page instruction manual. 2700 pieces to corral up. Some guys like stuffing full sailed clipper ships into glass bottles, my boy likes building Lego cars he'll probably never own, but then again, he keep attacking work fearless like he does, you never know. I'll try and take progress pictures as he goes through the construction. Inside of box has an illustrated history of the 911, which is a nice touch, but $300 is still a lot of dough. Before anyone jumps me for supporting a left wing anti gun anti American company please know I don't give a fig. I like having fun in this life and it gives me a great deal of pleasure making others happy. Life is quite hard edged and trying at times and we should treasure those moments we can grab to make it otherwise.
