A lot has to do with the kid's upbringing. If his father is a
good father, the lucky kid has all the car mags in the house, goes to
races, and generally talks cars often in the home <VBG> I am told that I
picked out a 1/43 scale model of my father's '65 E-Type from a display
rack of 100s when I was 1.5 years old. My boy, Arie (good car name, eh?,
also, his middle name is Lorenzo, after my grandfather, which can be
shortened to 'Enzo) loves to stand behind the wheel of the Quattro, and
turn the MOMO while going BRBRBRBBRpht. Then, he'll twist the MOMO shift
knob back and forth a few times. He'll do this in any car, but likes
manuals best (yes! He's learning well!) I can work on the car for about
two hours with him in the driver's seat, just playing with the controls!
Great built-in babysitter!
