    As a few people know my father was a mechanic and fabricator for f1 Ferrari in north Italy inside the Maranello factory. For years I have had this circa 2004 conrod from schumachers Ferrari siting on my bedside. I thought someone would like to have it more than me. Now on the Ferrari store they sell for 500 plus. But difference is this is a titanium fabricated part made by my father. It's quality is excellent and no other manufacturer comes close. But maybe someone on here may be intrested. I have not got a reserve. Will it sell? Should I keep it as it's all I have to remember my dads work at Ferrari

    Here's the eBay item number
    Item number: 160547148532

    Honestly mate I can't even afford to service my car at the moment. It's gutting but I guess I don't need a piece of titanium to make me remember how proud I am of my fathers working achievements lol

    i'd keep it too. you're right, you don't need a piece of titanium to remember your dad's achievements, but it's still very cool and unique - and the fact that it was made by your dad just adds to it's personal value.

    you could always spray parts for us ASN boys to raise some cash lol
