I was with my 456 on the road. Out of sheer pleasure, here some pictures of the "fun maker".
Cheers, D.

Missing serial number plate? Maybe?

I thought this was the easiest one!

Did you just grab the picture from somewhere, or did/do you own it?

Interesting; looks like the series plate is no longer on the center console - and the obvious wheel change is certainly interesting. I don't know for sure, so I'll just hazard a guess and go with 124180.

I could be wrong, but I thought that on all RHD cars it was placed in front of the passenger just below the airbag

The picture was taken by a salesman at Ferrari of Atlanta and sent to me.

I have a question, which I hope you can answer. The salesman told me that this car was used in a special dinner that was held in New York to introduce the Barchetta to America. The dinner was back in 2001, I think. I recall seeing a news article or something on that dinner, and I thought the car was a darker blue, maybe TDF Blue or Pozzi. Does that ring a bell with you?

If that's true, that's a cool little factoid!

That's how I knew which one it is - that's Alpharetta Highway in the background, and that car was on display in their showroom when I was living there. Not too many blue on blue Barchettas, so it was easy to deduce.

I'll have to check when I get home.

The Guys at FOA were great. When they'd find a car that they thought suited me, they would invite me up and send pictures. A couple of times, they drove a car to my house to take me for a ride. Steven Eckoff, Levi Gonzales and others. I think that Levi is now in Tampa at the dealer there. I also knew Steve Ahlgrim back in the day when they were in Tucker. Steve, who regularly appears as a judge in many concours, has performed PPIs for me. He once inspected a car at Shelton Ferrari in Ft. Lauderdale. I then wired the money and then drove it back to Atlanta for me. (Bet he loved "gettin' it" up I-95.)

Here's a couple of pix sTyleR took of my car at a show last w/e. Spent a week detailing it, because the entire front was encrusted with bugs. It won't be this clean again until the next show. lol.

Cheers,

George
