    Wazza. You are a man of many animated gifs! Like someone said before one for every occasion. More blinkers than Blackpool!

    Joe - the prog is gonna be based on the results of the voting they did on their website. I think the TR was the winner but not sure. They will also have the runners up too.

    Set the video timer now guys!

    Hi I was fortunate enough to go along for one of the day's filming (my mate had his Ferrari filmed during the day time) and the final shoot at the (mock up) studio at Tower garage.

    I won't give the game away on which car won, but the list of ten cars include,

    328
    F40
    Californian Spyder
    Testarossa
    P4
    Dino
    250GTO
    Sorry cannot remember the others...

    Was great to meet VBH, Tiff and Tom.

    Cheers, Mario.

    Hi Adnaan,

    I've been around this board in one form or another for 2-3 years but don't do many posts.

    I've had my Mondial over 10 years PM me if you want to know more, on the whole its not been a bad experience, drove it today 4 up and we all still fit in it (Wife + 2 kids 12 & 10).

    As for the 5th gear programme, I cannot say what car we were in as it's the WINNER, you will see on Monday night.

    Cheers,

    Mario.

    PS?: How do I put a picture in my profile???

    Just to let everyone know how the UK voted:

    10 246 GT Dino
    9 330 P4
    8 250GT California Spyder
    7 250 GTO
    6 360 Modena
    5 365 GT4 Daytona
    4 F40
    3 250 LM
    2 328/308 GTS/GTB Series
    1 Testarossa

    Great Programme, Disappointing result - No 288 GTO, No F50 & the 328 ought to have come first !

    Personal opinion, Biased I know.

    Agree with you but doubt that the average punter even knows what a 288GTO is.

    I agree with you guys ! The average punter, is likley to only know one ferrari name and the cachiest of them all is the testarossa ... no surprise on the result then. Also, Magnum drove a 308 and not a 328 but who would differentiate ?

    Tony, I too am quite dessapointend with the 355 not even getting a look in.

    Steve, I think that for the context of this programme the 288 gets lumped in with the 328 !!! (I don't mean any offense here, just my perception of the respondednts anwers)

    Very supprising result.

    My money would have been on the 355.
    Hur! Didn't even get a mention.

    I noticed Tiff's favorite was the 360(which should please all the Modena owners).
    I have always had a great respect for that guys opinion.
    I think he's one of the few car guys on TV that actually knows what he's talking about.
    And christ, he really knows how to drive.
    Did you notice how much he was pushing that 360, and looking very comfortable with it.
    He looked like he was positively enjoying every minute of his hot laps around Goodwood. I was specially impressed with the way he drifted the back end out round Woodcote Corner and hot footed it through the Chicane.

    I've been trying that for years but it never looks anythink like that.!
    Oh well, back to the brawing board.

    VBH-What a babe.

    ok, I may be 'slightly' biased, but thought the program was great, and was delighted to see what could have been my exact car being whizzed around by a fit young lady. 2nd place not too shabby either! I think Thomas Magnum gave a slightly unfair advantage, but still good to see!

    :eek:)
