If you're talking about Stephen's F40 as the other one that is heavily modded, there are two others in the area.
NICE, I'm sure it enjoyed the cold air! Mine is 20% into the work I was talking about earlier. UPS didn't show till after 6pmBtw, made it to the destination. eS2 was amazing.
I love the 456. so understated. As much as I adore the 550, I don't feel as though it aged as gracefully. And I like big GT cars.
So much want in this right here:
And thanks for the thread Sherpa. I can't stop thinking about your F40, and your attitude in buying it. I have an understanding future wife, so maybe I can make something similar happen (although I won't be able to go F40 crazy. the reality of being a professor)
ITT: Inspirational stuff.
Should have worded my response better, nobody owns a car show, I'm just happy to see what it has evolved into.
It really is a great event. The only thing that comes remotely close to a negative about bringing the Ferrari is that I don't get to walk around and see as many other cars as I would like because I either keep getting asked questions and dealing with the crowd a little. Although it's kind of a moot issue as last time I went with the Audi I ran into so many old friends that had not seen me in years that I spent all my time catching up and not enough looking at the sweet cars.
I love that there are so many old cars at that c&c, especially the Porsches and Jags, although its always a treat when a whole crew of esprits shows up.
Every time I see a Fit drive down the road, I wonder if the owner has a F40 in addition.
Congrats on the F40 and being open. I used to live in the same area as Jas (RufMD) and he welcomed me to his home 2x to see his collection (at the time F40, F50, 360CS, Carerra GT, 911 GT3RS) in 2008 and let me sit in his US F40 with 1640 miles at the time. He even started it. It was fantastic.
Also, my car doesn't get started unless its going to get driven on a real drive. I don't think it's good for a car to start and idle and then get turned off. It builds just enough condensation to do damage to cylinder walls and also the oil temp never gets properly high, not to mention there's no load on the moving parts and such that need it. I'm not judging, just saying that I don't do it.
The other thing I'm super OCD about are rpm's and oil temps. I am really careful about warming up the car properly before any real rpm's and load.

I'm thinking while we have your car here over the winter for the major service we're going to install this...don't worry, no charge to you
It's a proper, proper thing!
