New York Giants fans, now that your team's season is over and you've got some free time on your hands, here's some motivation to get moving on whatever project you've been putting off until the end of football season.
Don Martini, a 75-year-old grandfather from Blairstown, N.J., recently completed a scale model of the old Giants Stadium in his garage. It took $20,000 and two years, but Martini's model is one of the most impressive "do-it-yourself" projects you'll ever see.
The model is 20 feet long and 17 feet wide and has nearly the same number of lights and seats as the actual stadium did. Instead of scoreboards Martini installed two small TVs, one of which shows Super Bowl XLII on a loop and the other plays the 2008 NFC championship game.
Martini had to sell his antique car to clear space for the model in his garage. And the stadium is only the centerpiece of an extremely impressive space. Martini's garage also has a timeline of Giants Stadium on the wall, a wall-sized image of the New York skyline and autographed photos from each Super Bowl team.
