if that works... my first wish shall be a wish multiplier 馃榿 and no fine print please!

Ah yes, the same answer I was going to give!
'For my third wish, I wish for three more wishes'.
As for fine print - if you have the time try to get a viewing of the 1967 film 'Bedazzled'.
It's all in there - even if the film is showing it's age.
I only managed to watch the Bedazzled with Elizabeth Hurley in it which I believe that was a remake? But the scene where the Devil sped past the hospital while honking loudly in the Lambo Diablo was absolute treat for me. Very fitting for the she Devil to drive a Diablo, both equally sizzlingly hot LOL.

Oi! Don鈥檛 push your luck, gents :D
Yes sir.. will try to be on my best behaviour when the genie shows up LOL

I was talking about the original with Peter Cook and Dudley Moore.
I'm not a fan of remakes, very rarely do they match the original - especially when the question of acceptable behaviour is involved.
Most modern efforts tend to have to stick with the codes of today, often missing the subtleties of the original.
Two that spring to mind are 'The Italian Job' and 'The Ladykillers'.
It's also great fun to enjoy seeing all of those cars that are today listed as 'classics......
Thanks mate for the link. The short clip looks good I'll be keeping an eye out for this classic. I too not a fan of remakes normally. I love the original "The Italian Job" but I refused to watch the remake despite many praised the awesome car stunt and chase scenes. I was unfortunate to be exposed to the remake of "Get Carter" before I got the chance to watch Michael Caine's awesome original.

The Tipo 33 Stradale set looks pretty sweet IMO. The inner child in me is screaming get the set! But the more sensible side of me said no.. maybe i should just be looking at the version C where there it has the most visual differences from the "version A" which i believe is sitting in the Alfa museum currently?
