    A bit of both, maybe: tragic that it has been allowed to get into this state, but if someone is now going to out it right, that would be worth celebrating.

    Nobody is "celebrating" the condition of the car or how it got that way and we can't roll back history, so it is what it is. The part to be celebrating is the fact that it has been found, can and will be restored ;)

    Excuse me... Putting it in the Beverly Hills Ferrari showroom as is isn't "celebrating" it?

    WRONG.

    Leaving the car that way and showing it off isn't helping get someone to try to restore it. It's an effort to get MORE money out of it by leaving it that way forever.

    I already said - the "celebration" is the finding....

    I've got news for you - car dealers don't restore cars - they sell cars. Some of them barley wash them ;)

    I don't think any of have any of us have a clear understanding what is happening with this car, what the timeline has been, the context of the photos, and what the future plans are, so debating what is "appropriate" and analyzing motives is rather pointless. If somebody can provide a timeline, current status, and future plans, then we will all have a basis for voicing a meaningful opinion. Without that, we are all extrapolating off of thin air. (IMO)

    I've received cars back from dealer service looking worse than that :)

    Sorry I misunderstood. I think marketing this car in a dealer showroom in its current condition is "fishing" for someone to overpay for it as "a barn find" instead of what it really is -- and abused car desperately in need of restoration to get it back on the road.

    In my poorly worded way of getting my point across, what I'm trying to say is instead of saying

    "Wow look awesome it is that we found a car like this."

    we should be saying;

    "Wow what a tragedy for someone to do this to this car. I hope someone gets it cheap enough to be able to restore it".

    Barn finds are often auctioned at some of the most premier auction houses - no different. The market is what someone is willing to pay. Hey - I get it - there is no chance (no matter how much money I have) would I ever buy a $50,000 or $5,000,000 dollar painting - especially one that looks like a 6 year old did ;)

    Yeah, but take that same painting, stick in a barn for 40 years, and then you won't be able to live without it.

    If it is THE alloy bodied car, I can understand all the fuss. Still don't like seeing Ferraris in that condition, unless it's a before and after restoration pair.
