    Seems to me this car has been mentioned on F-Chat before - on the old board.

    In that color combo, it's not so bad. My 17-year-old daughter likes it, so I probably shouldn't. :)

    Is that a true factory color?? I actually like it also (without wing and rollbar) I can't imagine it would be hard to take those 2 items off.

    Granted the rollbar is ugly and the rear wing a bit much, but if he wants to track it and is serious about it, you need the roll bar and probably even the wing. After all the Challenge cars have wings for a reason.

    Color choice is so individual, no need to get upset about it.

    Rob Your 355C is quite handsome!! Did you really get 10HP from just changing the filter to a K+N on the 328? I saw the Dyno results.

    To Each His Own--I agree
    I just thing that the 355 GTS/GTB/ + Spider are the most beautiful things in the world. Sometimes people overdo things. This car looks like it belongs in Fast + Furious. The only thing missing is a set of curb feelers.

    The paint isnt really that bad. I guess if you took off the wing + rollbar you would have Uber 355 spider. Challenge Suspension + Big Brembos =FUN

    Agreed with the movie statement. But what are curb feelers? And what is a type R sticker? Clue me in pls.

    PS: I have seen beautiful Monza replicas and they all had these ugly roll bars. But I guess once you flip her over, you don't care that much anymore, whether the rollbar was ugly or not. As long as it holds...

    But that rollbar looks decorative, not functional.
    And worse, its not just a rollbar... its a decorative rollcage!
    So, actually negatively functional.
    Unless that is some really thick walled tubes.

    Last time I saw this car on the track (Laguna Seca), the guy was very serious about his track driving, so don't judge him (or his roll bar) too fast.

    How is it decorative? I suppose he could/should have extended the tubing into the dash and a -pillars, but for basic roll over protection it looks fine to me; even the cross bars behind the seats. Then again, had he gone further, the same guys lambasting him for "destroying/ricing out/etc" this perfect 355 would be saying the same for drilling a 3 inch hole into that pretty little dash.
    I don't get some of your opinions, at all.
    PS: What , exactly, would make a roll bar "pretty"?
    This is a true targa rollcage, but it's far too restrictive for a street driven car, as it's in a race only F50.
