There are not many line-ups of cars that would compete with the previous pictures!

Nowhere near as impressive, but here is a group of cars assembled at Silverstone by the UK Ferrari Owners Club in July 1992. Unfortunately there were so many great Ferraris squashed together that, although it was an amazing sight, photographing individual cars was difficult from the public side of the barrier.

These were just some of the cars on display and in the background of these shots is a glimpse of some of the others. There was a good number of Ferraris racing too, and a great turn out for the Concours.

Here we have:

The ex-Rob Walker 250 GT SWBs (7 SPA) 2119 and (B 400) 2735.
250 GT SWB California (23 VT) 3059.
275 GTB/C 9035
Some of the 250 GTOs there that weekend.

Could it be the owner/driver of 10797 (Didier Griffe?). One of the pictures above, I think, shows this car with a yellow pullovered pilote.

I had not been aware of a Jackie Stewart look-a-like competition that weekend!

The lady in the picture is not the same one as in the passenger seat of the car in Classic Oldtimer's picture above (who appears to be the same lady as the one in my picture in post #742). Could it be Ulrika Jonsson?

Could well be. The other blonde lady next to the daytona is an old friend from my old neighbourhood. I did the trackday but not the concours that year.

June 1980, Goodwood paddock. 308 GT4 #11844, which I believe, was then owned by David Scheldt. Whatever happened to him ?

In Bognor Regis now? Seems to tie in with approx dates of when his previous address changed ownership.

308 GT4 #11844

The car is for sale in London.

According to the 308 GT4 registry #11844 was completed in late November 1975 and trucked to UK concessionaires ,Maranello in December 1975. Order number 185 was finished in Marrone metallic Dino 106-M-73 with Beige hide (VM3234) and Beige carpets. In turn the car was supplied to the then Ferrari agents Lazenby Garages of Rothley,(by now owned by Cooper group and rebranded later as such in 1976) Leicestershire and first registered MJU 889P,on the 2nd March 1976 to Lazenby Garages as their own demonstrator. According to Tony Willis who was the then managing director of Lazenby Garages, this was their first GT4 demonstrator.

The then (January 1976)list price was £15,718.95 plus delivery number plates and road tax. In addition the car was optioned with electric windows £120.46, heated rear window £28.06, air conditioning £374.40, leather interior£302.86 and metallic paint £152.10.

Four months later the car passed into the ownership of its "first" owner with 6,225 miles and registered to Mr Geoffrey Reyner of Geoffrey Reyner Ltd -a transport company-of Manchester on the 9th July 1976.Reyners owned a number of Ferraris according to Tony Willis ,who says that this car was replaced by a later GT4 in August 1978.The car appears to passed into the trade with Perry Motors Ltd in London, who sold the car to a motor trader ,Michael Nathan also of London .

The car passed in to the ownership of Mr David Woolley of London on the 9th August 1978,re registering the car ,DW 26 removed from his Rolls Royce.

In a letter with the car, written when he sold it , Mr Woolley states that "the car has had only one other owner and was purchased from Michael Nathan".

Passing into the ownership ,with some 32,000 miles, of Mr David Scheldt of Middlesex on the 9th January 1980, swapping it for a 308 GTB .Incidentally the car was by now re registered OAR 217P,and registered to his company Scheldt and Petty an Italian car specialist. Mr Scheldt had the car refinished in Blue notifying the DVLA of the change on the 4th November 1982.

Passing to another car dealer, Mr John Day, who registered it to his company, Day and Shindler Ltd of London ,on the 13th July 1987,using the car himself .

The car was next purchased by Mr Michael O'Brien from John Day for £23,500 ,with some 38,000 miles, and registered to him on the 23rd April 1990.Two years later he re registered the car into his company ,HI-Fi electronics manufacturer, Swisstone Electronics Ltd, on the 1st June 1992-and by now finished in yellow. Exactly twelve months later it was re-registered to Mr Michael O'Brien of Surrey. Upon his acquisition he sent the car to Moore Tech Engineering in Chessington to repaint the car red and having engine/gearbox removed to "refurbish the engine bay". Some £9,616.17 was spent on the 30th November 1991.

It seems that John Day was a good friend of the next owner, Mr John McDonald of Eire-apparently introducing him to Michael O'Brien .

Mr O'Brien sold the car to his friends ,in early 1996 (John and Ursula McDonald- who had set up the HI-FI store, Richer Sounds in Ireland, and would explain Mr McDonalds enthusiasm to buy the car from a fellow "Hi-Fi'er"). Having bought the car it was transported to Holyhead for the crossing to Dublin in July 1996.Mr McDonald kept the car for six years in that time covering 54 miles and never registering it in Ireland! He sent it to a friend with a Peugeot dealership/workshop for "fettling" and whilst there it was damaged. Mr McDonald received compensation for repairs from the insurance company, but decided to sell it to a friend Mr James Reilly, the minister for health ,where it joined a collection of Jaguars.

The car returned to the UK mainland in the Autumn of 2015 where it was sent to Steve Moody of respected marque specialist SMDG for recommissioning and MOT testing. This has included new cam belts ,replacement tailpipes ,radiator.

Thank you so much for posting these wonderful photos of old Ferraris. So nice to see some of them in everyday surroundings-it shows how much the cars stand out.

My husband now owns the Azzuro Blue 308 GTS QV (reg B23OVT). I would be so grateful if I could arrange a way of giving him a copy of your photograph of this car -I would pay you for your trouble as it would be very special. I do now know if this is possible.
Thank you again
Sarah

Is it still Azzurro, Sarah? It would be great to see some photos of the car as it is today, too.

Ah, my first Ferrari which I owned from 1995 - 1997.

It was red with black interior when I had it. Last time I saw it, at the NEC auction in 2012, it had been restored - repainted light blue and retrimmed.

https://www.silverstoneauctions.com/...i-308-gt4-dino

Originally LHD, it had been converted to RHD by the time I had it.

Still taxed + MOT'd according to the DVLA site.

I remember researching prior owners. Perhaps you are one of them?
