How do you know it's Pirelli?  Is it just the two-tone eyes?  Has Frank identified it?  I'm keen to add it to my 'Mental Watch List'.   :wink:

You're hogging The Eye.  It's time to lend it to other needy people!

 :shock:

Anyway, I thought The Eye was a paperweight you sold last year?  I seem to remember bidding on it.  :P

I know!  But it's hard to find the money when it's not really your own field....know what I mean?  I don't really collect paperweights, I could see it was a bargain, but....it's not really my style.

I'm obviously not in it for the money!  :lol:
