    Looks like my F40 day is approaching. Any word on some nice 10,000+ mile cars in great shape ?
    Thanks

    Good luck in your search for a F40. There is much useful information here. I wonder how many of the 200 USA version F40's are still with their first owner? Less than half?

    Other than the fact that it is one of the best looking Ferrari cars... can't think of one! I take it this one is not making it to Monterey in August.

    Did you find one? I think I finally found one for me...except the idiot put a radio in it? I have yet to see the install (pray for no drilled panels).

    late 92, mileage is a bit lower than i'd like (3500), but the car might check out. I will know more sooner, I hope.

    Are you both looking for a 1992 Ferrari F40? Or it doesn't really matter the year?

    John,

    Completely unaware of that car. I will try to get a hold of Tim. Thanks for the tip.

    Seeing Steve's F40 in action on a recent Northwest area drive, I'd kill to get a little ride in one!

    This is the car that was in FORZA with my car in 2002, super nice car, I wish Tim was not selling it, but he has so many irons in the fire right now, no time to enjoy it!

    Super, Super car!

    Chris,

    Glad to hear it is a good car.

    BTW - are you sure about the "sequential" F40 turbos? I still think stock ones are the same size and spool up at the same rpm on each side...there is only one per bank...you would need 4 (two per) to have a sequential effect in that car.

    I looked at botht he stock turbos and the LM ones yesterday...

    What am I missing??

    Tim's car is an awesome example... I saw it on Wednesday of this week.
