Sorry With three Ferraris there is at least a 50% chance one will be cactus.

My score currently is 2 out of 3 in for repairs. I can't start the 3rd one without a pit crew, so for all I know it might be 3 out of 3

It's about time you found this site.

Where have you been?

Anything yet with the springs?

My current score:

1 for 4

- 360 in for annual service and front bumper stone chip respray, will have it back on Monday.
- F40 in for annual service and to fix a problem with the ride height suspension alignment
- Daytona still under going restoration, project running a couple of weeks late
- F50 running perfectly

That's why I have two: One in shop and the other to drive...we not only continually rotate but I've bought Brian Crall a new overhaul on his wife's LM003

and when not Biran, I'm always glad to put another mech's kid or two through college.

To bad I didn't own a boat or plane, then I could go out with nothing = keeping exactly what I came into the world with.

You can do the same for me!

Airplanes are worse than Ferrari's. Either it's a 12 cylinder Merlin in a P-51 or it's twin 300 HP Lycomings in a 310 or 340 or worse yet hot sections in a C90 tuboprop!

BTW, I don't think Brian is married.

Remember that I stated that "I think"!

It is her Lambo; it's his maintenance nightmare!

Hi mate - sorry - I've been out on mining sites with a new gig for our company looking at their operations technology/IT. All good!

Springs are due in a week! I'm excited about getting them fitted. I ran Kuhmo semi slicks on the 360 at Eastern Creek last week and the transformation is AMAZING. With the springs the car should awesome. Piccy of two of our cars from the day attached.

Car looks great. What color is it?

That license plate looks goofy though.

You need my front plate holder.

The springs will make a huge difference.

Just wait until we get that tranny properly cooled!

Know all about the boat thing. Makes Ferraris look quite reasonable.

Thanks Gcalo, I would like to "do the right thing" and register my car in the Boxer Owners section with a couple of photos. Do you know how I do this. It does not seem to let me post. Do I have to register in some way to do this?
