Kathy had been on a visit to Virtual Montmartre when she noticed the stairs. Recalling that wonderful scene from "The Great Race" with Tony Curtis, Natalie Wood, and Jack Lemmon, we immediately thought of the fun of riding a vintage auto down those steps. Then I kept my husband up all night as we thought about an entire sim dedicated to the vehicles, scenes, and costumes from that movie. Ohhh, what a mine of pure fun it is!
Anyway, we went looking for a vintage auto and found one immediately - and it just strikes me that the company in the movie that makes the Leslie Special au-to-mo-bile (which they pronounce as an unfamiliar word) is the Webber Company.

We had only gone into the Marketplace to pick up this car, the SZYM Metro, originally ... but it's like being sucked over the event horizon. We didn't get out until dinner was declared.

|Dawww, brilliant moped!|
We thought this was just hilarious: the !Rickshaw+ for just 1L! It has room for two and the charming asian noob's legs move. Definitely worth the price although it's non-copy.

|Lludmila will fall in love with sailing all over again.|
|The perfect accessory! Doesn't it look great on her?|
