    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! :D

    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..... :D

    What the hell - here are a few of them:

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

    Thank goodness you posted those pics. I think we'd all just about forgotten what these things look like. Phew. Thanks again.

    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! :D

    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! :D

    yes, it would have to be, the 3 litre is gutless so imagine a 2 litre without a turbo (or even with one!!)

    never seen a 208 here in Oz, why would we bother with one ?

    don't think so. far as i know he doesn't have a short historic/numeric plate, and his exhaust tips are silver.

    edit: think there's something different about the plenum chamber too

    Damn, and I got excited when our dealer got a Gransport this week....wish they finally got themselves an Enzo or F50. :(

    Were those taken at Maranello Motorsport? They didn't have a problem with you going in and taking pictures? Any of the F40?

    yeah get 'em out into the open and shoot them. most of the local prestige dealers are on my road and while they're nice to look at on the floor, it just doesn't really do it for me.

    well ok , but the point of the exersise was to show that i was going to find a ferrari on post it on the site.
    The guys at marenello motorsport had no problem with me taking the photo and were quite friendly. this is what its all about.

    the F40 was there didnt get a photo as was in service area.

    I appreciate them, and don't mind PP he's always stirring ****. ;)

    Its good to see they are fine with pics, I just thought over there with the more exclusive cars it might be a bit of a problem. The dealer here is also happy for me to take pictures - they expect me nowadays. :D

    I really need to make a trip to Vic. or NSW so I can see myself some supercars - maybe later in the year.

    360C, how about bringing it to WA in October?

    EDIT: or if that fails, bring it to Alice Springs in August..... :D
