Just checking on the off chance.
I've got a Land Rover - does that help at all?
I sat in a mates once......well, he'd hired it for a weekend. Does that count?
Put it in the OTC forum, I am sure someone, if you ask nicely, will nick one to order after a skin full on Friday!
I've been a long term collector. Let me know if we can share advice, tips, etc.
Here's my latest:
A lad on Blandford camp has a Ferrari
Had enough of the Aston have we?
Probably the best and worst cars I have driven have both been Ferrari's on a track day.
Not quite a Ferrari, but it's Italian and has a good vintage on it
Poppy's going to cuff you for dissing her wheels matie boy....................
Alas no but my step brother owns one and he is a right twat will not let poor old lltq with in a mile of it.
My cousin is a car dealer and has had quite a few really shit ones over the years, including a 328, 348, 400 and a really shite Mondial which he got for a couple of grand. He's also had a few Lancia Thema 8.32s which have Ferrari engines. I helped him do a dashboard change on a mate's Testarossa once and the underside of the dash was made out of corrugated plastic, the sort of stuff estate agent's signs are made out of, I kid you not. The reason we were changing the dash was because the plastic had started to disintegrate.
Personally I reckon the pre 1970s ones are lovely but anything built between 1975 and 2000 is generally quite crap, the newer ones are pretty good apparently but if I had that sort of cash to spend on a new car I'd probably go for a Alfa 8C.
Having said that, regardless of which model you are in, people still always look and either say ''wow a Ferrari!'' or ''wow what a dick!'' Even when driving the Mondial, which was worth less than most second hand family saloons, people still thought it was something really special, I suppose it's all about the badge for some people.
Don't even get me started on Maseratis.
My uncles - cousins - sons - wifes - dad has one, apparently.
If I could afford a Ferrari I'd buy a Porsche
3200, talk to me.......
I suppose it's not as bad as a Ghibli or a Biturbo.
