    Pulled up to a removal job yesterday morning right out in the sticks (i live in oxfordshire btw) and as i drove up the drive i see this under a blanket... being a car nut i knew what it was straight away and got excited :)
    the guy is the ex head chef for honda F1, and has owned this since new... 26yrs and its only got 50k miles on it, it was absolutely imaculate!!!! after much standing and starring at it- reving it and taking snaps lol he took me out in it too, not every day you get the chance to do that whilst at work and getting paid for it :) lol

    What a corker! That was certainly an enjoyable days work. Sounds like a nice guy too. Nice to see good cars well looked after, too many of them now are just disposable boy toys.

    yeah really nice guy.... we had a laugh all day long!! he was one of the boys sort of thing,

    and yeah one of the last real ferrari's, crafted rather than bolted together and hooked up to a computer....

    he said he worked hard and did alot of saving to buy it thats why he apppreciates it so much more and looks after it!! fair play to him thats what i say :)

    Odd that so much steam came out the offside pair of exhausts compared to the nearside ones.
