There is normally a drive out from central London if you are interested. Details are sent out about two weeks in advance.

Just joined acouple of days ago.

Live in West Sussex and thought i'd say "Hello"

Currently have a '98 456 GTA, Tdf Blue with Tan, only 19k miles.

Tempted to change it as i've had it 4x years now. Do i stay sensible and stick with 4x seats so that we can all go out (612 Scaglietti), or do i say 'what the heck' and be selfish.............?

Yes I had an Argento Silver F355 in the late 90's but when the kids arrived it got used less and less - lack of time and not enough seats.

Last 4x years i've had the 456 so that we can all go out together, but still suffer from lack of time!

Are you considering a 612?

If I were you, I'd keep the 456 and add a 308 or 355, instead of moving up to the 612. Keeps the family happy and gives you something as an indulgence.

But it all depends on circumstances I suppose. Room in the back as the kids get older makes the 612 a tempting proposition.

Although it looks like this thread hasn't been added to in a while, I thought I'd introduce myself.

Thanks Boxer, although I've only been on this forum for two years less than you, I've got some catching up to do with the qty of posts! But then I've only had the car for just over a year, unlike your collection - which I gather included a 456 at one point, but your experience wasn't so great. I read this forum in great detail before purchasing - but still continued with my acquisition regardless, we'll see if that proves to be foolhardy.

I gather you're quite active on the FOC front too, I've not done much with that, although I've been a member (PHR) for years. I never seem to find the time, too busy working. Plus to be honest, at the moment, my wife doesn't really share my passion.

You are spot on, my experience with the 456 GT was not that great. However my experience so far with my next 2+2 (Nart Blue 612) has been terrific.

I am actually not that active on the FOC front. Been about two years since I made it to any of the major FOC events. Just don't really have the time unfortunately.
