It's Ferrari red and gleaming, but it's not what you'd think. "Some people buy exotic cars. I buy a meat slicer," chef Hans Rockenwagner says of his newest acquisition, which stands waist-high, weighs 500 pounds and is the centerpiece of his newly remodeled Santa Monica restaurant, Rockenwagner Restaurant & Brasserie.

The long bun is stacked with mortadella, capicolla, genoa salami, bologna, ham, Swiss and provolone cheeses, plus lettuce, tomato, chopped red onion and pepperoncinis. While you wait for the sandwich to be assembled, look around at the automobile memorabilia mounted on the walls. Among the photos and ads is a shot of the Pasadena Freeway when it was still a brush-filled arroyo. The Godfather sandwich, $4.

The headlines were certainly scary enough to turn readers into vegetarians: "Sausages and Bacon Up Bladder Cancer Risk" "My Bologna Has a First Name, It's C-A-N-C-E-R. " "Cold Cut Sandwiches: A Potentially Deadly Lunch. " Fortunately for meat eaters out there, the study that prompted this week's dire warnings wasn't quite as absolute as it was made to appear. For starters, studies linking red meat consumption to cancer aren't new. But this study, published online Monday by the journal Cancer, zeroed in on a specific culprit -- processed red meat -- and a particular body part -- the bladder.
