    I have seen threads about houses and garages, but how many people have car stuff at work (provided that they do not work out of their garage/home)?
    Mine should be humbled within seconds:

    Some vintage Ferrari models, an Alfa Milano (75) seat converted into an office chair (I am not paying $2K for the Recaro version), Ferrari Barbie, E-type steering wheel, an old Ferrari tachometer with "NFG" written on it in black marker, and an aerial picture of Concorso Italiano I attended last year.

    thx

    I think the best here is Chris with the F40 by far the coolest office ever. There are pictures on the old board look for the 355 desk

    Pat, you're talking about Chris Parr, right...? i remember those pictures, but i thought those were of his own "personal" room in the basement of his house... Not sure, could be wrong, that's just my (horrible) memory seems to recall...

    Well, I've got a shelf of 1:18 Ferraris, the top shelf is retired or current helments, signed by various famous people, and the other day the Owner of the company told me, "put up some shelves and get these trophies off your desk! You can't get any work done in a trophy display case!" LOL

    Empty champaigne bottles too!

    Oh, and the Ferrari F1 Calendar. This month shows Micheal sitting calmly as flames lick away at the fueler rig/tank jucture. THAT"S COOL UNDER PRESSURE!

    I just counted. Five trophies (My largest is just too big to fit in here!) and four champaigne bottles.

    Hey, this one's not opened yet! Bring me some ice!

    And of course the Ferrari Shield mouse pad.

    My office ain't in that league by a country mile but I do have prominent photos of myself in a yellow 355 spider generously provided by my most excellent "better half" (rented in Sydney for a day and driven as any rental car would be) as well as the 512 BB wheel nut paperweight, also provided for another birthday by my wife.

    Plus I have the "My Pictures" rotating screen saver full of F-car photos gleaned from the Web.

    Cheers

    Is that Mr. Parrs house? Does anyone know how he got that 355 desk? Can you buy them somewhere? Im thinking of re doing my pool table room with a Ferrari theme like he has done. Anyone have ideas?

    After seeing Mule's....it kind of humbles my surroundings.

    All I've got in my office is:

    - 2 laminated photos of a Daytona Spider;
    - 1 desktop photo on my 308, my wife and I;
    - 1 frame with a collage of pictures of my wife posing next to various F-Cars at the former Ferrari dealer in Montreal;
    - and a smattering of various 1:43 to 1:18 F-car models on my desk.

    That certainly is not mine - it was posted from the old board.

    That's the coolest basement ever!! Do you have a link to that on the old board? I want to go read the who's and what's on that. I am envious!

    Yeah, I remember these ones. I think you are right, it was the guy's "home office". If I recall, he did have some, ahem, zoning rules. Ferrari stuff started at the basement staircase.
    I have been pretty lucky. I have a 62 car display case (1.43) in the master bedroom ! My wife mostly tolerates my obsession.

    I had the pictures on my hard drive, but I think a search on the old board for Ferrari basement should find it.

    "but how many people have car stuff at work (provided that they do not work out of their garage/home)?"

    Well my office is in the carriage house out back of the old victorian home we live in.

    So I won't be posting any pics of Ferrari stuff, since you don't want to see home offices.

    The Ferrari desk was custom made for me by a gentlemen that has worked for me over the last 5 years.

    All that is required is the front bumper, so you could use a 348, 355, or any TR variant.

    I do spend alot of my time at that desk!
