Wish I'd know you were going out to play - I've just come back from a bit of a blast myself!!

Where did you get to?

Ahhh - Cold and wet, I remember the English weather well - Looks like the convertibles managed to get the roof down, at least for the photos!

Looks like like u had some fun!

Very nie!! Just saw that the favourite choice for UK is Rosso Corsa/crema. Almost all the cars have that clour/interior combination.

We met at Box Hill and took a brisk drive out to Arundel, via A29. Weather was ok , with a bit of sun and NO rain.
I think most 1st time Ferrari buyers go for Rosso/corsa or nero. I know i did, but next time it'll be TDF/tan for me.

Nice - I like Box Hill.

Used to go there on the bike in the summer - but it's just too busy/crawling with police now to be worth it.

I'm exactly the same - Rosso/Crema this time - but probably TDF/Tan next (if I get a choice) - because they look bloody fantastic!!!

I didn't want to say as I'm not sure which of the cars belongs to Tony - but seeing as you're asking (and at risk of offending Tony) I think it's absolutely horrific.

It's obviously a nice original car - still has the black roof, still has the black lower panels - so why someone would do that to the back of it, I don't know.

I've rarely seen a Ferrari that's undergone "home improvements" and has come out looking better - and this certainly didn't.

Tony - if it's yours - please don't take offence. I do absolutely accept that modifications are a very personal thing - and one mans horror story may well be another mans dream. The above is simply my opinion.

That 348 threw me - I'm surprised the back panel/lights are the right size, or have they been reworked to fit?

BTW, can someone run-down all the models in one of the photos - I am hopeless spotting the differences between TBs & GTBs, TRs & Testarossas, etc :oops:

(They're all pretty thin on the ground here :cry: )

like Bazil said, i'm sure than the rear panel was home made...
For sure, if this guy loves his 348 with such a rear, it's still his choice and his car....

Hope he is happy...

The difference between tb and gtb...or between tr and testarossa...on one picture...could be a good thread...for dj dirk...

Guys,
the cars were;
3 x 355 Spider
1x TR
1 x 360 Spider
2 x 355 GTB
1x 348 TS
!x 348 TB
1 x 308 GTB.
Mine is the 355 Spider with Challenge grill.
. The 2 348's both have modified rears.The GTS has Challenge grill and 355 lights and the GTB has the whole rear from a 355 . The Challenge rear was a custom made job while the 355 rear was sold as a package , price i believe was around $2k.
As you say, this is a very personal thing and the Challenge grill car has grown on me a lot. I know the guy who owns the car and he has spent a lot of money and time on it. The car also has 355 Challenge Speedline wheels and uprated discs and calipers.

I've spotted the tb - 2nd from the end!! Wouldn't have noticed if you'd not mentioned this - can just tell from the front.
