    Went to Autosport Design last night... Saw this in the window... Very hard to get good pictures... Here's what i extracted from my camera that actually has some pieces of the car you can see... Secondly, i don't know if it's a replica or if it's the real thing 'cause they had two vintage Jaguar replicas last time i was there... Anyone...? Thanks...

    i'm gonna try and go there tonight before they close and check it out, maybe take some better pictures...

    i inverted pictures 6, 10 & 11 so you could get a better view of the details... The Ferrari is on the right; i'm not sure what the other car, further back in the showroom is...

    D'oh...! is right... When i was there, my initial guess was a 330, but then i went home and flipped through The Complete Ferrari, trying to find the details in the pictures that i saw on the car in the window and i thought it was a 250 GT... LOL, go figure... Thanks, everyone...

    i'm gonna try and go back today and take pictures while they're still open... Apparently they charge an arm and a leg, but last time i was there, the fellow i spoke with was really nice... If i can more (better) pictures, i'll certainly post them...

    LOL, sorry... i tried and tried (you wouldn't believe how many pictures i have that i DIDN'T post) but just couldn't get good pictures of the car... They've got a few Astons there so i thought the one further back was an AM, but i wasn't sure... Thanks for clarifying...

    Thanks, everyone... i just called there to find out what time they close and they close at 6PM, so it doesn't look like i'll be taking any pictures tonight... Maybe i'll try on my lunch break on Thursday, if not, maybe this weekend... i asked if it was a replica and he said it was real...

    While the 330 GTC is an absolutely wonderful car, it's not a typical model for a replica. I suspect it's real.

    By the way, Carbon...what were you smoking when you took the photos <g>

    Not sure what the <g> stands for; maybe "giggle", but i actually WAS smoking a cigarette through about half of these pictures... :)

    If they're odd shots, it's because i was trying my damnedest to get a good shot of the car, but to no avail...
