Looks v. nice.
Why are there no 246 ( or 206 ) models out when I go on drives in the GTA ?

One of my favorite Ferraris. I really like the Daytona seats in this one and notice the flares, must be a "chairs and flares" model.

+1 on the Daytona seats. They really look just "right" in the Dino.

I love chairs and flairs on a Dino. I see some of that styling queue in the 308's fenders.... Don't forget the deep dish campys... a C and F exclusive if I'm not mistaken. Like that its a proper color too... Silver!

Current: 85' GTS QV
It's a simple process...... it's just complicated by human beings....

Oh man that is beautiful work on the engine, Alex! It is exactly the same colour as my 246 GTS but I don't have the beautiful Daytona seats. I have the b4ll cooking vinyl seats.

Did you overhaul the transmission as well?
