Another Brit

Hi everyone, I'm not actually new to the forum, I've been lurking, picking up all of the extremely useful info you guys place on here for some time.

I live in West Sussex (UK) and after lots of research bought a 456GT just over a year ago.

I'll add some pictures in a sec, if I can figure out how....

I've already posted a few threads and since you all seem like a really friendly and helpful bunch of people, equally passionate about the same subject, I thought I ought to say hi!

I can see this forum becoming addictive.....

Thanks guys,

Although a member of the FOC, I've not really got involved much, but plan to do more next year - I just need to get my wife interested (she's no interest in cars at all, but does appreciate the fact that I do thankfully).

I wasn't sure about the colour combo initially, but decent manuals are hard to find, and my first Ferrari had to be manual!

Great color combo for the 456.

Yes it's addicting - but we could all do a lot worse.

Welcome. Nice specced 456.

Saw a silver 456 in Summertown, Oxford the other week. Looked beautiful even though 15 years or so old.

Try bringing your wife along to the picnics, which are very sociable, informal and lots of wives come too, less blokey than some events, and there's always the house to go round.
Walton Hall Concour will be good too as there is a spa there.
Go along to your area group too. even if you go alone, then you'll have some people to introduce her to - quite a few partners come to my AG for instance, Three Shires.
Maybe see you at some events - my car is on page 13 of Ferrari mag, current issue.
