I've been catching up on a load of posts, and was browsing through some of the photo gallery, and saw a 308 GTS QV picture in the garage adorned with Ferrari flags.

As I am currently building a house and I was thinking of how I will "decorate" the garage for the Ferrari with memorabilia, I wondered who else has already done it, and what were the results?

Outlandish, outrageous, stylish, F1-pit style, or just a car cover - have you got any pictures?

I also saw on the TV the other week a car collection, with a 512TR behind which was the largest Ferrari insignia I had seen, must have been 3m tall. Other than getting one painted on the wall, where can you get them.

I know its not a Ferrari, but i parked this Italian beauty up one day 3 years ago and just built the whole shrine/room around it:grin:
My 355 Spider is parked next to a 360 and 430 when its not on the road. A few flags and a dealer sign adorn the walls.

I don't. The ex got it all.:tongue2:

But at least the car she got was an Aurora! haha!:argh:
Now that she's gone though...it's time to build back up and get all the toys I couldn't get before.

My two Ferraris are not in the same continent as I am 300 days a year, and not even in the same country as each other! It's a bit weird, I know. As soon as I get a life they'll move in together.

But I'm about to get the keys handed over for a new garage with room for 4 cars (if I install two lifts) and I'm looking forward to doing that up with Ferrari stuff over the next few years. Will post some pics when I have something to show!

JazzyO, sounds great - but the question is - what two cars are you going to get to join your current pair?

Excellent question, I'm in exactly the same position, I also really want to know, get suggestions, idea's and advise.

It would be great to se someone post some pictures of their "shrine".

I started collecting some bits over the years, but not with a garage in mind, now I am extedning my search - even confirmed today my old front discs are in the boot when I pick up the car tomorrow. Make a good clock surround for the garage I think, and maybe the other for the office!

Garage

I have a twelve car garage on my main residence and thought I have built my dream house. Boy was I wrong. I now have nine lifts but have over 30 cars and am really short of space. I do not like spreading out my exotics and would like it on the same location. I am in the process of building a 75x150 garage on my main residence which should be more than enough space for an auto museum and a gym combo. Attached are some pictures.

Lambo65,

What can I say - Awesome. But based on your current collection, and the potential for you to add a few more, I understand there is some great garage space coming available soon - in Detroit!!!!!

Well - it doesn't mean that I only get two more... most likely I'll still keep 1 Ferrari at the specialist's, so that leaves room for 3.

Deciding what I'm going to buy next is difficult and to a large extent dependent on my cash position. But these are the candidates:

1930's Riley 9 or Kestrel or some other '30ies open sportscar. I love the Riley Imp but that's expensive (150K EUR).
1960's Lotus Elan DHC
1972 Porsche 911S. RS would be fantastic but that's hugely expensive.
Series 1 E-type roadster.

And as for additional Ferraris, in order of desirability and inverse order of affordability/likelihood of owning:

275GTS (not in a million years unless this crisis really throws some wobblies)
330GTC (unlikely but boy are they nice)
F430 Scuderia (if I wait long enough)
F430 Spider (quite possible)
330 GT2+2 Series II (affordable '60ies Ferrari - a bit sedate though)
308 GTS (if I buy this it will transfer to my younger brother in due course)

Attached a couple of pics of Riley's for sale at the moment. I love the idea of such an old car and I really like their styling.

maybe a long shot but do you have any idea what kind of lifts? and costs?
thx
Hi Louis,

Since the cars would be permanently lifted I have to install 4-posts. 2 post is easier to work on but I wouldn't like to leave a car for months on one of those, let alone with a car parked underneath! A four-post lift is around 1,600 - 2000 euros.

Holy mother! You can really go off some people you know ... outstanding garage!

Meanwhile, back in the normal world, just a nice tiled floor and a few pics on the wall ... I guess at least I don't have to move any other cars to get mine out :D

Mine is parked outside in secure carpark. I keep it under cover and its not visible from the road. Plus there are 10ft high walls and gates protecting it!

I'll try to remember to take some pics of the car with the cover on.

How was it planning to go some thing too?

@lambo65 just one word AWESOME:grin2:
In one word mate, "Anticlimax", i would never do it again. And to be honest if i had visited before i spent 30k on two bikes that i did/have over the last 8 years, i would take my cash else were. They were rude and amaturish and the so called tour took only 15 minutes, consider that i travelled 250 miles from Maranello to visit them. They invited me to visit via email as well.
There is an old saying. "Never met one hero's, for you will be disappointed". No wonder they have been owned by 5 various owners in the last 6 years.
Never again mate.
