Aussie Ferrari Spotters Thread??

Is there such a thread here like the one in the UK and most of the US forums?
If there is then where can I find it?

If not then I would be happy to start one!

Saw a 208 GT4 Dino on Anzac Parade in Kingsford this morning! Very nice too!

I have plenty of pics of Ferrari's spotted on the road - but I'm a bit scared of posting pics of a red Ferrari.....

What the hell - here are a few of them:

550 Maranello, (red) 360 Spider, 355 Spider, 308 GTB

550 M

Seen a 550 M on the Eastern freeway on WED and have seen it quite a few times while going to work late in the afternoon, getting off at the same exit each time. Think he lives in Kew

You're hilarious. Mind you, if I'd wanted to see one, and I don't (OHOS) I could find many 000s of pics of them on the net.

Oops, I think I may have got the wrong spec on the Ferrari I saw on Anzac. It was Red (of course) and definitely the 208 GT4!

Hope to see lots more Fcars out here too!

Not a Ferrari, but I saw a pristine Silver Lambo Miura on Sydney Harbour Bridge yesterday afternoon!

Isn't the 208 a turbo?
