    In the past two weeks I have seen a red Ferrari F40 near my house three times. The first time I saw it the guy was driving out of the Walkley hockey arena, the second time it was driving down Bank Street and I just saw it again today driving down Merival road. Does anybody know of any F40's in Ottawa?

    Forgive me for the ignorance, but I always thought that the F40's were never street legal in Canada, 15 year rule or not. Has this changed, or am I simply wrong?

    Best,

    That F50 could have been driven up from the US for a vacation or something. I'm kind of surprised that Canada doesn't waive certain cars - I mean, come on, if they made them legal, maybe 3 or 4 might find their way into Canada... it's not like they would displace Pontiac Sunfires in sales or road population. It's just hard rules taking the place of common sense IMO.

    I spotted a CAMARO based F40 replica in Niagara a few months ago... beware that your F40 spot is not the same ;)!

    I have seen an F40 at the 2003 ottawa ferrari parade. I don't know if he is from the ottawa area, I heard that the car driver/owner was there as a favour to Remo Ferri. We would have liked to ask him about the car, but he was a little bit standoff-ish and freaked out about the attention his car was attracting. Duh!!!! an F-40 in Canada....what did he expect.

    Well, I think we all knew there was an F40 somewhere in Ontario. What I want to know is if there is one in Ottawa.

    Could this be the F40 that Remo sold a while back? There used to be one on the upper level (next to his 365 GTC/4 and 275 GTS) but it has been gone for about two years (replaced with a yellow Enzo).

    Ok, I think I know who's car this may be. Let's play a guessing game shall we? Here is the one and only clue. Has this guy gone "Banana's"? LOL.

    This may or may not be the guy in the pic however it is someone who had or still may have an F40 here ;-)

    Cheers,

    Vasco.R


    P.S *hmmm* If it's not the guy who's gone "banana's" then I have missed it by a "shoe". Or shoes.........many shoe's LOL. Confused yet? :p

    Damn. Remind me never to write any more guessing games. Tabernack!

    I've recently heard that there was or is a F40 in Calgary. Anyone know anything about this car? Apparently at one point it was involved in an accident with a deer.

    Ok... so if by that you mean it's still there I take it there are at least 3 F40s in Canada. 1 in Calgary, 1 in Montreal, and 1 in Ottawa.

    Yes this is true, this car went out west a few years ago via montreal. It belonged to the same collector that my F-Car belonged to.

    The Ontario dealers (plural) had a few models when the F40 was new. There was one PROTOTYPE (USA nose! sliding windows, flat 20 vent back window and 5 vent fender) , two street versions (USA) and one race model (#19). None were street legal at that time...

    I saw the car again driving down the Queensway this weekend. It's definatly an F40, not a replica.
