Sounds cool! I can't say I remember ever seeing an orange Ferrari. I do like one of Lamborghini's orange colors. It is a metal flake, with pearl, in a kind of burnt orange. It is very complicated but cool color.:cool:

A few months ago there was a post on here with a 360 spider that had been resprayed in Lamborghini Oranchio Pearlescent and had a big sound system fitted. The general feedback was that it was shocking (that's the polite version)
I do love that colour as well, but think it looks better on a Mercielago, Gallardo or Diablo

Lambo's need outrageous colours and styling because they aren't Ferrari's, but that isn't saying I wouldn't have one (I would and in orange:D )

Its funny that you say that. The other day is when I came across the orange Lambo, which was at Tonkin Ferrari of Portland, it was next to an even louder lime green Gallardo that was a special edition or something because it had cutom stiched seats and green interior components too. It was trying way too hard.

It is kind of sad the direction Lamborghini has gone. The Muira was a very classy car, and could wear lime green like it owned the color, and I know I might get flamed for this, but I'm going to say it anyway. To me, the Countach is, and always will be, without a doubt, the best looking, most striking, and daring sports car design and shape ever created. It is the deffinition of what a supercar should look like. It must have looked like a spaceship when they were released onto the road in 1973ish. I can't say the same for the mechanics though, and that's what cars are really about for me. I would never consider owning one, but I've gotten lost following one around just starring at it. The guy probably thought I was a nut or something. He was right, I am a car nut.

yes but has anyone heard or seen of the marranelo in orange I have tried looking around the net but no success :(
Nope, but I'm not sure I want to. I think Ferrari feels the same way, as I'm almost positive it has never been offered as original paint.

Some older red cars have kind of faded into an almost tomato color though, which I do like. Honda calls that color Taihitian Red, and was used on most of their early MX bikes.

Yikes, a Maranello....It would look better if it were glossier, but for some reason that dull orange just doesn't feel like a Ferrari.

Onno, that colour is wonderful on your national football shirts (but not a Ferrari). By the way I am a huge fan of Holland, if I had to choose another nationality it would be Dutch.

Hahahaha:D
I wonder why:thumbup:
Al, nothing to do with the coffeeshops, honestly !!!!:D
I just love everything about the Dutch culture, way of life, people, architecture in Amsterdam, general attitudes....etc
I go to Amsterdam 5/6 times a year, and never ever tire of the place. I'm always sad when I have to go to Schiphol for the flight home.
When I arrive in Amsterdam, I always feel like I am going home.
I've always said that when I retire, one year I would like to spend six months from March - September there to really explore the place properly and just soak up the atmosphere watching how it changes over the seasons.
This might be a sad admission, but I also love gardening and horticulture, another big draw to Holland for me.

Well, Archie, there are few things better than hearing from someone that he/she loves your home town (it's not a city, really). :) Although I was born 10 miles/15km from the city centre and have known it all my life, I share your sentiment about wanting to spend time in A'dam - I've fantasised about an apartment (better yet - a merchant's house, but I'm not that rich) there as I've never spent any amount of time there.

I'm glad to hear there are people in the UK who do not think of drugs and prostitution when they think of Amsterdam - it irks me that those are the only two things people are interested in when they hear where I'm from. But I suppose that says more about them than about my town as (almost) no Dutch person thinks of those things when they think of Amsterdam.

When you're coming 'round again, send me a PM. I'm not in country often but when I am I'm just outside of Amsterdam in Muiderberg. We could have a drink on Het Spui, or you could tend to my garden! ;)


Onno

Onno, I'm taking this thread way off topic so I wont say any more after this post:)
I think most sensible people in the UK see Amsterdam for what it really is, a beautiful city full of rich culture and unique architecture. Sure the Stag & Hen parties go for the drugs and red light area, but once you've seen the RL area you've seen it. If you really want porn you can get it on the internet, no need to go to Amsterdam for it. I haven't been up there in my last 20+ visits. As for the drugs, you can get them anywhere in the UK anyway, so it isn't really the attraction people think.
Maybe for a 20 something on their first visit to Amsterdam, they would try these things, but for me, having been 30+ times the novelty of all that has worn off many years ago. I love exploring the side streets off the 3 main canals and further afield, there are some really wonderful shops and restaurants off the beaten track and away from the Damrak, Dam Square and Magna Plaza areas. I prefer going the opposite way to the RL Area and Centraal Station up towards Leidesplein and Vondel Park. There seem to be far more Dutch in this area and it's an altogether nicer place.
The thing that always strikes me is how few Police or how little trouble you see in Amsterdam. Any town or City in the UK is full of Police and drunken hooligans on a Friday and Saturday evening:(
I'm going again in a few weeks, but am on a very tight schedule. After that, my next planned visit will be in the spring, I'll send you a PM, and would love to meet for a beer and chat about Ferrari's:D

Amsterdam to me means canals and diamonds.
Orange should be left to the lambos and the drifters -
no not the group Archie :)
