Welcome: Tell us more of the 246. You certainly have a very nice late model example. would like to see pics and know more on your [years?] of ownership.

PS: Ever hear of a knock off hub? that subject came up recently.

Welcome to Ferrari Life

It's rare that you were able to hold on to such a great car.

Lovely! I love long-term ownership stories. Dinos are fantastic. You're a lucky man.

What Danny hasn't told you is that one reason he was able to keep the car that long is that he has a NINE (9) car garage including the original '63 Alfa his family bought and he learned to drive on. He is too polite to say but that Alfa has won many Concours.

Danny - any photos of the recent refreshing of your Dino? Perhaps a new thread?!

LOL, nobody owns all of them it is the "guys" getting coffee - actually a lot of us get together and have fun. Some are keen on long distance drives, others like the shows. It is GREAT to have a support group for our habit.
