Do you honestly think Ferrari would have been better off with Ford in the 60's? Yes, I know, pride and spinning and such, but I cringe at the thought of a now where Ferrari doesn’t look like what it is now.
I only learned about this show the day before it happened. About a week ago a family friend of Chandler’s put up a Facebook post.
They are dropping faster than I thought they would. I seem some on eBay around the 100k range and I think that is great value. A V8 grand tourer that has the wail and presence this car does is hard to beat. Not sure why it ever got the reputation of being a bad Ferrari because I think I would pick one over the…
Well it is 1/24 scale, so maybe you will forgive me. If not then stop reading this post. I was perusing eBay the other day cause I wanted to do an RX-3 model, but I didn’t like what they had options for, so I thought what else. Just then on Oppo someone posted about the 308, and I thought yes, a Ferrari I could…
It finally happened this Saturday. I’ve been running on adrenaline all weekend. For an idea of how the this weekend went.
I know you would rather see the pictures than deal with me, but I must preface with some writing as this post reflects on the completion of my car’s restoration.
(It’s a new year and soon Ill release a new list of affordable Ferrari track eaters, in the meanwhile enjoy this classic list of sports cars and widow makers which are still hard to replace, although there are some new contenders. Stay tuned for my updated list on Friday morning.)
This past Saturday my girlfriend Nichole, my dog Ellie and I participated in the local Alfa Romeo club’s spring rally. Organized by my friend Dean, it promised to be a 136 mile drive of great roads and cars. Here’s Dean’s GTV:
A great concours event today in La Jolla, California. Enjoy the photo dump.
The weather was great over the cars and coffee weekend. People showed up in droves and I had to park in the boonies again due to my inability to get up early.
something something sexy engine noises and chicanes
Apparently, Ferrari dealers (or at least this one) will buy back high demand cars and resell to other wanting Ferrari buyers.
Went to the Exotics @ RTC show this morning, where I saw many cool cars and a lot of people, but failed to meet up with any of the other Opponauts who went too. In addition to the veritable flood of Lambos, Ferraris, and Porsches, there were some rare and unique things there—I think my favorites were a Rauh-Welt…
I’m not saying it’s the 308 but . . . Well no, that’s exactly what I’m saying.
Some turned out well, some could’ve benefited from a better lens, most would’ve benefited from a better technique. Oh well.
Some of you may remember that I have a 1/18 scale Hot Wheels Elite Ferrari F40 LM (nice big name.) Those same people will remember that the post I showed all $85-90 of it in was kinda shite, mostly due to the potato pics. I’ve gone and remedied that.
Of all the cars that have been made which do not conform to road-car regulations, and are therefore illegal to drive on the street, isn’t this really the greatest one? To even begin to think about basing a race car of this extremity on a Grand Touring car is just insane, the weight alone is detrimental to any type of…
