    very interested for our Fchat experts to provide informed opinions on this bellweather

    Full disclosure: I waited too long, watched prices sky rocket and have been hoping against hope to get an entry somehow someday :):):)

    DM18 there was a blue raced prepped on in the UK for sale, pricey but the engine was solid from the ground up....long club racing history.....

    Then also, I ran across a red lightweight six carb example in Phoenix shaking down at Firebird raceway for Pebble Beach, the owner was very nice and also had a yellow 250LM...........the outside fuel cap, aluminum body was a special car.

    Like the yellow 275GTB aluminum one Enzo 'cheated' into Lemans, as a street car!

    Out of MY reach but not YOURS, brudda!

    I need to scan those pics from Firebird Raceway, those guys had a quiver of cars that was unreal!

    I was jus' slinking my way back to Houston from Mario's winery in Sonoma, with Lady Valeria in the copilot's seat.....

    275GTB alumiunum red
    250LM yellow
    real Cobra Daytona
    lister Jaguar
    Lotus F1 Jim Clark livery
    some kind of Maserati sports racer late 50s

    It was quite the fun time sitting under tent with them, watching that stuff rolll out and in.

    the 250LM was in the gravel trap four times as they changed rear sway bars.....LOL!

    I remember back in 2001, my dad and i were at Classic Motors in NY , they had a gorgeous red/tan 275 GTB/4 for $350k. We loved it but thought it was too much ...

    I still kick myself for not having pushed him to get it. It was just beautiful .

    2001? 2002? Don't think you need to go back that far, probably should have bought in at 2006 prices.

    Is my F40 worth $1 million US yet? It's one of the desirable red examples ....
