    i do not have any experience with sphere, so i cannot recommend them.
    H&S is simply the best place to get your ferrari service done in Houston.
    the only thing is that sometimes they get super busy, so dont be in a hurry.

    I believe so, albeit a good one.

    Look at the size of the holes in the rear aerofoil, the nature of the embossed F40 logo, and the position of the PS door mirror.

    i did not know this, nor do i see that in their agenda online.
    how does one enter? what are the criteria? my car is definitely more of a driver than a show car, and it would not pass classiche (which i have never cared about).

    They emailed the program a few days ago. You should email them about the 2022 event. You can enter your car, but yours might get docked some points for having diff turbos etc. But if you are not after winning a trophy, the event itself is pretty amazing and the cars are beautiful (i dont knw if you have ever been to the Classic). Since they are celebrating the F40, id think they would welcome yours with open arms.

    16hr drive to The Breakers. You could show the other owners what a real driver looks like.

    yea....well when i first bought it, i drove this car from Bob Houghton to Geneva in one go, and i couldnt walk the next day ! but i did have a lumbar support cushion made thereafter, which helps now. (my ears were also ringing for a couple days).

    would i drive this car now all the way to cavallino......i dont know. might be fun. might be heroic. could be disastrous.

    Only one way to find out. For sure it will beat flying with a mask on.

    Well spotted, add the lo-res cavallino in the fender shield, too big side marker... well, everything actually!

    @ross Congratulations on your car, just perfect, lovely, great. Short story for being able to use a EU spec in th US is simply you bought it here and imported into the US?

    bought the car in 2011 when i lived in Geneva full time.
    imported the car to the usa in 2019 when it was more than 25 years old and therefore exempt from DOT/EPA restrictions.
    paid import duties.
    done.

    Well I got that garage door open, and drove to the ferrari festival at River Oaks Shopping District.
    Somehow I lost the people's choice vote award to an Orange F8.......hmmmm dominion voting machines installed at the ferrari festival?

    Could not agree more with you, I was there with my 430. Yours or the Enzo or the F50 should have taken it.

    Orange F8s don’t with car shows. They just don’t.

    especially with 'the most votes ever received'...... ;)
    to everyone i was standing there with, it sure seemed like a few hundred votes were 'found' after the voting booths closed.... :)
