🎶Meanwhile, some music for you to enjoy as you read. This piece is part of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, particular the first of the 4 violin concertos, called Spring.
🎶让大家继续读的时候,欣赏一点音乐。这件作品是维瓦尔第的“四季”的一部分 - 4小提琴协奏曲中的第一首,名为“春天”。

First thing I see is the rear end. The nice and shiny parts must need some maintenance regularly.

Look like a RollRoyle


I think this maybe more expensive than a Rolls.


Indeed, anything that is Black, Gold and Red always does looks expensive.

They are still in good condition!
