    I missed it. Someone posted it on a community FB page, and a CVT reporter saw it and asked if he could shoot some video of it.

    Was it on during the weather forecast?

    I rode in an older 6-cyl 911 years ago. I remember the engine was loud and sounded like a garbage truck. But my biggest memory was the BRAKES. Holy carp that thing could stop fast!

    Anyone have any experience with 6-cyl Porsche boxer engines?

    Nice.

    A Ford Model T would also be good, but even harder to make than a Daf.

    The good thing about the Bug that makes it appropriate for snow: it's igloo-shaped. :-D

    Artist is too strong a word I think. I was just copying (trying to) from some diagrams I found online. More of a technical exercise?

    One old-timer who stopped to chat while I was snow-carving said he had a late 50's vintage that had semaphore/wigwags on the B pillars for turn signals.
