      Why the f- did I put “French”. No clue. I think, I was so baffled at the stiupdity of my Star Wars meets I don’t know what post above my brain just let one rip. I put Italian Pagani Zonda and Agusta (which I also run theThrottle, I do know they were founded in Italy) and yet I put in a French chick too.

      Mr. Shalikashvili was born in Warsaw, Poland (1936). His Polish father fought Germany in WWII. When they were defeated, his father was forced to fight Russia in the Geogian Legion and from Germany (16 yrs old at time) he crossed the pond.
