    LOL, yeah, it does... It was so much cooler to find it by peeking in the window late at night rather than checking out their website, though...
    Hey, what car is in your avatar...?


    Bryan, sorry... i figured it was something like that... You're not that old, don't worry... :)


    Guards - LMAO...!

    One of my all-time favorite Ferrari road cars and one that I've never seen in person, 375 Plus Cabriolet 0488AM. The photo was taken by Peter Vann and appears in Antoine Prunet's Fantastic Ferraris.

    Next time try turning off the flash. The photos will look very blurred, but they will be more visible.

    Wayne, why is it one of your all-time favorites...? There must be some history behind it...

    If your camera has threads on the inside of the front of the lens, you can buy a polarizing filter at any good camera shop. Be sure to take your camera, so they get the diameter correct.

    Sure is! BTW, Dave, looks like you captured part of fellow F-chatter Manny Del Arroz's 375MM s/n 0490AM in the background of that shot. Did you get any better shots of it?

    Yes, Carbon, there's PLENTY of history behind it. A quick synopsis: One-off built for King Leopold III of Belgium, lost for quite some time, discovered in Europe and subsequently purchased by American attorney Wayne Golomb and later the subject of a strange legal battle. Golomb still owns this car as well as one of my other all-time favorite Ferrari road cars, 375MM s/n 0456AM and he drives them almost daily. Lucky dog!

    (Edit): Forgot to mention, for those of you who care about these things, the 330 GTC in Carbon's pics is s/n 9159.

    Wayne, I think that picture is from 1983 and if I'm not mistaken I may have emailed that and some others to you some time back. I'll look to see if I have any other shots of the MM.

    Wayne... That 330 GTC just sold for $115,000... How the hell, may i ask, do you know the serial number merely by knowing where it is...? Are 330 GTCs that scarce...?

    Dave, I remember you emailing me the photos of 0488AM (they're somewhere on my hard drive), but I don't remember seeing 0490AM in the background. Do you think you might have some better shots of 0490AM?
