      i was maybe 11 or 12 when i saw it and just loved the way it was made.
      don't think he made any other notable films,. but commissioning ferrari to build a one-off meant he had some kind of nous?
      He was approached by Pininfarina. Afterwards Luca gave them the nod to put a Ferrari Badge on it

      He also commissioned a LM spec 430 from memory.

      Yes!
      El Paso? I spent a month there one night.

      It was down the road from Boeing Field. I think it's in the Seattle Air History Museum (if that's what it is called?!)
      It was still painted in BA livery

      Like I said. There was one just sitting in the back hangers area at Heathrow in Nov. Also still in BA livery and all. I was in awe of it. I saw it as we were touching down. I have seen the Concorde only once previously, when I was a kid in KL. It was the only time I think that Concorde ever flew into KL.

      Yesterday I saw a Nissan Maxima on 24" rims. I was so in awe of the thing, I forgot to take a photograph It looked crazy!


      edit:
      Kinda like this, though this doesn't do it justice compared to seeing it roll down the street in front of you

      I don't mind the 1 series M sport, but it isn't pretty! I don't buy cars because they look good. I buy them based on how they drive mainly. I think that is the difference between me and a lot of you guys. I couldn't care less about the looks as long as I can live with it.
