My TR home

Hi, I got back from my trip to Toronto to pick up my Testarossa. It's now officially mine and here at home. We had a nice trip and met great people.
Next step is to install my new Newman diff and wait for the damn snow to melt.

Claude- Glad your redhead made it home.

Could use some of your snowmelt. 0.41" (1.04 cm) total precip here so far this year.

Hi Claude,

Congrats on your new TR. She's a beauty!! Just curious...have you thought of attending the 2014 FCA International Meet? It's going to be held June 11-15 in Lansdowne, Virginia. This year we're "Celebrating the Redheads!" If you haven't already done so, check our website: www.fca2014.org

We'd love to have you join us!

Claude- Love yellow Ferraris. What shade is that? Does not look like Giallo Modena, but suppose it could be the lighting. Looks more like Giallo Fly.

Congratulations.

Any chance you would write up a driving review - comparing the two?

Both cars are becoming more and more desirable - great combination.

Lamborghini SV Roadster
Carrera GT GT3RS Viper ACR

Yes Terry the lighting is changing the color and also the poor quality of my camera.
The color is GIALLO FER 102.

Understood. Just thought I'd mention it.

I absolutely love the color and I too can't wait to read your comparison between the TR and the Diablo. Enjoy the TR!!

Claude- That last photo looks more color true. Turns out FER 102 is both Giallo and Giallo Modena.

Claude, love both cars. Congratulations!

Did we ever meet at the Montreal GP? I met someone named Claude in the 1990s who was a Tifosi. Very nice guy. It'd be funny if you are that person.

Welcome to the TR club. Mine is going to be exercised today. Old 12s rule the roost.
