What does maintenance cost on this thing? It seems like you do some of it yourself, but I am assuming that it needs periodic valve adjustments, etc. What do these run? What about a new clutch? etc. .
Cars that sit too long tend to have more leaks, running problems, etc. People think if they just sit they'll age like a fine wine, but it turns out they just rot away. A F40 that sees regular use, in my opinion, is far less likely to breakdown.
The lion does not concern himself with the opinion of the sheep.
The dealership can usually get parts but I source a lot of parts myself, usually to save money or get better quality parts when applicable.
Have no clue about changing the turbos but if it's made for the car, I'm sure the block would hold up fine.
I don't know what wrapped or flocked means but the dash is a great carpet-esque material. Kind of like a cross between fleece and polyester. I don't know. It's hard to describe. The best part is that I don't have the glare that I had in the old car, which had a vinyl or leather dash.
Dr. Porsche was suddenly deflated and he turned to God and said, "God. I have been a good person. I have helped to build my family's company, built great sports cars and won many championships. Why does Enzo Ferrari have a house so much nicer than mine?"
God looked at him and said," That's not Enzo Ferrari's house. That's mine."
Hi sherpa, I stumbled upon some F40 pictures from a cars and coffee in colorado on another forum. Is this yours ?
