    Those are too cool - I really like the red one.

    That silver one is what I got for you before our PM. Glad I talked to you. :)

    Awesome collection - Enjoy!

    I think there were only 6 made, Carbon. You are missing the TR, LM, and 333SP.

    Jerry, i can't thank you enough; the dirty racecars are the best...


    Mule, for some reason i thought there was 7; 6 is better, it's less money i have to spend...! :)

    It figures you would have all of them... Unreal... You should zone your house commercial and open a museum... :)

    Yes, that was the paint job of #104504 when Steve Earle was driving it 1996-1999. Italian flag on Yellow. In 2000 Steve went to the 360 Challenge (which is one of your models too #07 360 C) and Dan Martinez took over the #104504 and it was repainted to the new FoH/FoD silver paint scheme. I'm (FerrariChat.com) is owner #3.

    Yes, it's one of the most common 1:18 Hot Wheels Challenge cars you can get. There's always some on ebay going for $15-30. I wonder how many were actually made. Now the rarer ones are the silver paint job from the 2001-2002 season. I had to pay $60 for one of those, but they probably only made 5% as many. Now the really really really rare one is from our sponsor Cavallino Models where they customized a silver one with my exact graphics and name. All the major race team sponsors will receive one or you can buy one from them for $125 or so. Only one in existence as of today.

    I went upstairs actually and looked at some of my Ferrari models and I actually have the yellow in 1:64th scale. You can see it on the first picture in this thread http://ferrarichat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8650

    Wow, never knew they had a 1:64 of it. I don't collect that size, but I'll have to find one of those.

    The first model was made by Hot Wheels (maybe few hundred).

    The second model is Robs car.

    I'm still searching for this silver one myself. I think 60$ is pretty reasonable compared to some prices that have been ask on Ebay!!!!

    The 1:64 came in silver and yellow also. They are on Ebay, too. If you want one and can't find it, Rob, let me know. I have a spare.
