It would be a perfect photo if the red Rover 75 was a rosso corsa 328 GTS

Sorry !!!! But it's still a Rover 75 in disguise They are actually good value for money second hand. I still think it's a shame that MG/Rover couldn't be saved and ended up in Chinese hands. Although they are starting to manufacter the new MG TF at Longbridge now. I bought a brand new MGF in 97 which I lovingly cared for for 6 years, it was a great car. Like all MG/Rovers they never deserved the reputation they've got.

Although the ZT is hardly what you would call scintillating, it has carried me over 40,000 miles trouble free and in stress free comfort, biggest groan with it was that 2.5 V6 has to be seriously throttled to get it to perform, was ideal though as a no brainer A to B mode of transport, well appointed and comfortable over long distances, commodious boot has swallowed everything from building supplies to moving house !!!

Hey, don't tell everyone - that's why the roads north of Glasgow are so quiet.
Brilliant scenery - reminds me of the days of the Ecurie Ecosse Tour.
Of course I wasn't driving whilst taking photos

Those pictures look like they were taken from a moving Marlin?!?

I was thinking the other day that I haven't been to Glasgow for a while, been making do with re-runs of Taggart and Rab C Nesbitt on cable. Should really make a trip North of the border sometime soon methinks!

Funny...when I first looked at it in the miniature format, I thought it was in front of the great pyramid in Egypt. Stunning resemblance.

Bad places to Photograph a Ferrari are:
1) Impound lot
2) On the rack at the local service station
3) Wal-Mart parking lot

Other than that...there all other places are great

How about in a condominium complex that you are a maintenance worker for, and the guy parks it in the driveway from morning until night?

I get so excited when I see it everyday I discovered it two days ago.

There's something about Ferraris,IMHO, that they look much better under natural backdrop and lawn carpet rather than hard asphalt and concrete jungle. w/ smiles Jimmy

Jimmy, I agree 100% with you

outdoor "nature" pictures are the best

and like Boxer said, the Swiss alps are pretty perfect - no wonder there are so many Ferraris in Switzerland!

In general I fully agree. That having been said, one of my favorite pictures of a 550 was shot in front of Buckingham Palace.

I'm assuming this isn't a great place to park up and photograph a 328

You're right, Boxer. Somehow, cars like 550 (90s and beyond) look exquisite and picture perfect in urban settings. w/ smiles Jimmy
