    Must be that guy in the picture.
    I spent a week in Seattle in August and did not see one single Ferrari. The weather was really nice too.

    People hide them in secret areas, only come out if it’s dry for a week, I only use mine to check the mail

    Hanknum (Henry) had an 78 with red Momo seats that he just sold or traded just this year, wonder if that’s the same car.

    How do you hit a “parked Jeep”. Looks like he road up underneath it. Hey at least he didn’t break his windshield

    If your are in the Seattle area on a Saturday morning, stop by the Exotics at Redmond Town Center. Usually a dozen or so Ferraris among the 200 or so other exotics cars that turn out. See https://www.exoticsat.com/ for more information.

    Lem had those seats in his. I'll run over there and see if it's his.

    Not mine that's for sure.

    What sort of cost is involved in that repair... any ideas? Curious.

    The front clip "part" is about $7K, and he needs some other bits as the grill and headlight.

    Real world would be to cut up a clip, OR find a salvage donor, like an engine fire, as I highly doubt there is a "new front clip" left against the wall anywhere in the world.

    These cars tend to go in "head first" unless as I said, an engine fire takes them down.

    I had an estimate to "do it right" for $22K when I bent the portion between fenders at the front.
    But, I have a Sawzall...….:D :D :D

    That's who I thought of too. I hope not. Not good to see that much damage. :(

    I guess this price comes from the Maranello website. I think that's the cost of custom making a replacement part to order.

    That has to be during our production, as at some point Ferrari sent ALL pre xxxx date parts to the UK dealership and washed their hands of them!
    Actually my parts price was based upon a NOS clip found on the East Coast, some eight years ago, with a $6500 ask on it.

    But call Ferrari UK Classic Parts,, they may well surprise you....

    Did we ever place whose car this is??
    For me, FerrParts on the West Coast would be the easiest vendor, for a used clip or for the individual Repair Panels.

    GT Car Parts in Arizona is also a pretty handy source at times, although I have a story to tell on them.....:D

    TRutlands is another known breaking yard, but our cars are getting harder to find.

    There is at least one left against a wall, at Eddie Walsh's place in the U.K, although it is a 328 front clip.
    Brand new, NOS...for exactly 24.750GBP, which is something like 29.000 us dollars...
    Your $7k look a bit on the cheap side, Alan...
    (that being said, the NOS 328 front clip has been for sale here for ages...)

    And that at a time when $22K installation, might total the car!

    I was trying to recall but I think it was in primer, new old stock.
    That was SOME years ago!

    Maybe our car values will rise to justify that asking price!!
    I think I bought my first 308GTB for $29,500USD, with the Bank ready to finance!

    Different times...

    I think the headlight opening is the main difference.

    Yes: the 328 does not have louvers behind each headlight pod, that's all.
