Next oddity of my R8 collection has arrived today. These were media / press materials provided to journalists as part of the R8 launch - presumably for use in their reporting so they had stock photography and quotable text, statements, specs, etc.

One booklet is simply photos, and the other booklet is all text. Maybe they separated it out so the graphics guy could grab one and the copywriter could grab the other... who knows. In any case, I grabbed a few quick pics. It'll go into the collection now!

Another great find EZ. When do you plan to open your own R8 museum?

Probably when my wife tells me I'm not allowed to store any more of this stuff in the house. :)

I have 2 questions:

does ez legitimately have the best and most extensive collection or r8 memorabilia or are there others with similar collections?

what does your wife get to buy every time you spend more money on memorabilia? There has to be some trade off there and I’m wondering if it’s purses or makeup or what? Does this cause marital issues?

On the first - I'm sure there are those with more extensive collections than mine... but I won't lie, I have a lot of "stuff." At some point, I'll make an inventory.

On the second - my wife is just utterly fantastic. She has a very laid-back personality, and certainly doesn't care about these things. I joke about it, but to be perfectly honest, she couldn't care less. We're in a very fortunate situation, as well, where spending on stuff like this is just noise... it's not affecting anything material, so nobody's keeping tabs. I'm super grateful to have such an awesome spouse!

The front of this booklet reminds me of the banner in my garage. It was a gift from my independent car specialist who was a former Audi dealer.

Lucky man. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
Absolutely! I took several years (dating) to pull the trigger on marriage... made sure I knew exactly what I was getting into. :)
