    Thanks, so much I was not familiar with that title! Thanks, again....

    They did have a tricky reputation, I watched a yellow one in Phoenix , AZ, US work hard to get it dialed in, they had rear sway bars laying everywhere!

    There are several photos on the "More old photos" thread. Are there any in particular that you are looking for?

    Very good.

    Just had the transmission rebuilt. Runs great! As you know, it has dog rings. I find it fun to shift! Have to pay a little attention, kind of like a musical instrument - get the timing and RPM's right.

    I have a book about 250 LM, titled "Ferrari 250 Le Mans Berlinetta", by David Piper - Edition Mille Miglia, all in Italian, but with very good photos of the car and various components during built, etc... Some photos are so large, that I would have problem to scan them.
    Bought the book years ago, thinking it was in English (well, Piper is English, no?).
    There are some racing photos too. Interestingly I found that at least 3 '250 LM' were not built at the factory with aluminium body, but plastic.
    Also, there is a gap of almost 2000 chassis numbers between the penultimate 250 LM and Piper's one - the last produced.

    I have some shots from Scuderia Bear back in the day. Do all these shots fit the bill or are some the 330?

    cheers

    So was I, one of my very earliest Ferrari memories. I have a magazine article on the subsequent restoration.

    The white and red 250LM was also seen in the Sears Point paddock during the Ferrari Challenge event last month. Stunning machine.

    Cheers

    Those are great shots!
    What is that round sticker next to the number and on the sail panel of the #85 car? Model builders like to know these things...

    Thanks!
