    How many "Prancing Horses" on your F-car?

    I recently started counting the number of "Prancing Horses" on my ferrari, as a result of a posting I read about a comment a user had about a Porsche that had "PORSCHE" on the car in numerous places. Then I started counting.....

    I have noticed, without looking to hard, (and I know I will find more) as many as 18 "Prancing Horses" on the car.

    So, my question is this.

    How many "Prancing Horses" does your F-car have, and who has the most. (Stock, as well as aftermarket)

    STOCK:
    1.) rear body emblem
    2.) emblem in front grill (euro 308)
    3.) front emblem
    4-7.) wheel center caps
    8.) identification plate(engine compartment)
    9.) hood release lever
    10.) rear deck release lever
    11-12.) speedo and tack
    13.) ash tray lid
    14.) horn button
    15-16.) side mirrors (euro 308)

    OPTIONAL/AFTERMARKET:

    17-18.) side fender badges

    FERRARI sure loves the horse!

    And four for the canvas targa top cover release buttons

    and four for the 85 308 model fuse block cover release buttons

    So that's 10 more:)

    Oops sorry Michael, I meant two for the fuse cover.

    I also have the 4 Vavlestem caps but didn't count it cause it's not original.

    How about this one. I just six months ago I bought a 599. Guess how many places inside the cockpit area the word Ferrari is written?
    Inside door sills (2)
    Above radio (1)
    60 yr. plate with VIN. (1) just above the headlight controls
    The vid screen that says 599 GTB Ferrari when starting the car. (1)
    Have I forgotten any?
    Back in 86 I bought a TR. Had it a couple of years before I sold it. Maybe someone can help me out . For the life of me I can.t remember if there was anywhere inside that TR the word Ferrari was written. Maybe the factory is afraid that we can't remember what we are driving.

    I love how Ferrari Embossed F430 on the mirrors of the car... Its beginning to look like a damned Louis Vuitton hand-bag.

    Its bad when Ferrari have little prancing horses on the vents, but I want to see if they will put them on each fuse by the end of the dacade.

    I dont want to reveal the true number (on an F430) but I have done this same thing.... thought i was the only sicko weirdo retard... apparently not.

    YOU GUYS ARE WAY OFF! If you want to count interior and exterior.... the number is astronomical! Don't forget the prancing horse on each window by the way. There are some really cool ones on the F430 interior by the way, some in plain view and others not so much but also many in plain view that you dont even notice until you LOOK real hard.

    Any guesses to how many inside and out on a F430... not counting undercarriage?

    Exterior, interior, windows, front bonnet, engine compartment as seen from above and sides...... The number is.........

    ??????

    LOL @ 18

    It might even be triple digits...... nah, can't be , can it?

    Ok, Here's the scoop on an F430

    Fist we have to separate the two symbols.... we have Cavallinos and we have the Word Ferrari (and in the case of an F430, there are 2 of those). There is an equal number of each (well, if you add the 2 430's to the word Ferrari category).

    On the Exterior:
    There are 14 Cavallinos (if you have stock wheels and Scuderia Shields) this includes the 6 exterior windows
    ....... make it 15 if you count the one on the gas cap of which you technically can't see from outside

    There are 12 Ferraris (includes the calipers)

    so that totals 27

    On the Engine:
    There are 5 Ferraris and only 1 Cavallino
    Within the engine compartment, there are 2 more Ferraris if you count stickers and plaques

    so that totals 8

    On the Interior:
    There are 18 Cavallinos and 9 Ferraris (includes the interior window #7)
    One may argue that when the car is started and the stereo comes on, it says Ferrari on the LED display so that's 1 more.

    total of 27. 28 if you count the LED display. 30, If you count the key which has both Cavallino and Ferrari.

    Under the front bonnet:
    There is 1 Cavallino and 4 Ferraris (includes the tire pump, tool kit and car cover bag)

    So that's 5

    grand total:

    36 Cavallinos and 35 Ferraris Plus 2 F430's (dash plate and drivers mirror embossed)

    71!!!!!!

    ***Interesting places you may have missed***

    On the rubber heel pads on the floor mats.. 1 cavallino on each
    on the rubber dead pedal.. 1 cavallino
    the key.. 1 of each
    on the flags on ashtray.. 1 cavallino
    the A/C vents.. each with a cavallino
    Gas cap.. cavallino
    Muffler... Ferrari
    on the VIN plate on steering column... 1 Ferrari
    on the tach... 1 cavallino
    The Ferrari flashlight in glovebox
    The Cavallino on the leather manuals case placed in glove box door
    The Matricola plate..
    ................................... AND THE MOTHER OF ALL MISSED CAVALLINOS (which I just found tonight)............


    On the back (facing the windshield) of the interior rear view mirror is a BIG FAT RAISED Cavallino!

    :D

    My Ferrari has TWO horses and THREE Ferrari words (2 under the bonnet)!

    Those were the days...... Somehow owning a Ferrari was sufficient.

    Cheers,
