Volkswagen Touareg Pick-up Truck Resurfaces!

From autoscoops.eu

Here was the original concept which was shown with the introduction of the VW Touareg in 2000. It was a gorgeous design but was not created due to market demands.


And it has resurfaced in 2006 as a custom created by VW Individual, a division within VW which makes police vehicles and limousines.



I think it has gone in the wrong direction. It looks more of a hickish frankenstein freak that looks like a Ford F-150. The diamond plate is nice, but a bit too much. I hope they go back to the original 2000 concept and see where it was headed.

It would be great to see a VW Touareg Pick-up but not the VW Individual design. It needs to have 4 seats and not look like it was built by Ford. A Turbo Diesel Injected (TDI) powered Pick-up would be perfect.

Hayden Panettiere Tattoo Misspelled?

Hayden Panettiere's tattoo is fully visible in these pictures from Cannes. What we can see is an Italian phrase, "Vivere senza rimipianti". This translates to, "to live without regrets." Unfortunately "regrets" in Italian is "rimpianti."

So it looks like Hayden has at least one regret...

Make sure you put sunscreen on that tattoo

Xmas Tree Subway Train Layout 2009

Here is the finalized version of the 2009 xmas tree layout using an MTH Premier R40 Subway set, Lionel Fastrack, MTH Graduated Trestle System, and MTH Realtrax Trestle Set.


Here you can see how close the train is to the upper deck when it has to go under.


Here is the upper deck view of the spiral.


And here is the lower deck vantage point.


This was the 1st version, but due to the incline of the spiral it's better to have the train go down on the steep grade.
