    It makes you wonder how many other fake exotics had passed him by without knowing if this one fooled him!!!

    Is there a prize for guessing the reserve price?? $687 ??

    As a native Missourian, I apologize to everyone for that car. It does not represent the Show Me State.

    What is perhaps most persuasive is the complete service history and provenance the seller has offered...

    "The friend I am selling this for told me that the motor had been rebuilt when she bought it from this guy in Arizona"

    That combined with the stable of "exotics' n the background of the pictures add to the air of prestige and elegance...

    I want to buy this car and place it out infront of one of the homes Im remodeling, partially under a blue tarp to make sure the cops are always watching it. They will think they will be watching it for meth labs, but they would be doing me a favor in watching it for thieves.

    Not only is the wheel to wheel well fit a joke, so is the top.
    Seems you would have to be from say "hayseed Arkansas" to think this is real.

    ...the shift lever is AWESOME, the top...well it fits just like a Ferrari should. Yep. I can see how it fooled an unscrupulous exotic dealer!

    I don't have a lot of love for Ferrari but I can see why they don't want these "things" out there bearing their name...

    I love the AutoCheck, "Major title issue found". Nothing more fun than dealing with a title issue. And seriously, 4 bids? Who the hell would bid on this thing?

    I'll go out of pocket for a couple of grand if we all agree to pool our money, buy the thing and push it off of a cliff.

    I KNOW it's bad, but think of the dumb money spent on making the molds for the body panels and the hours spent putting it together. A decent 348 is in the upper $30's, someone should have told the builder that...

    Chris,

    maybe you can get it and have a F-chat get together for the SoCal bunch. Charge a couple a bucks a whack to hit it with a sledge hammer and donate the proceeds to a children's charity or something like that. I'd make a day trip out of it to beat on that POS and maybe pick up a new watch as well.:)
