    Oh I agree with all that, I'm just trying to increase my visual literacy and thought the colors were cool, worth discussing.

    If maintain, the combo does look better. Years ago I was considering this 3.2 and planned a visit, then it disappeared before having the chance.

    In hindsight, it was for the best since the blue leather is difficult to love. I eventually found a black/red 3.2 Coupe instead.

    Aw come on now... o_O

    It has the official Ferrari tool kit, so all those issues... they'll buff out. ;)

    Should be an easy fix.:confused:

    More power to the seller, but based on what I've seen on BaT, classifieds here, and other places, the seller is asking about twice what it's worth. IMO, of course.

    Seriously, if the drivetrain is in "fantastic condition" like the visible parts of the car... :eek: YIKES!! This poor horse was ridden hard, and put away wet... leading to rusted body and crooked teef. :rolleyes:

    Hold on a second... It has a working light on the bottom of the door(s)?! That's something I didn't know these cars have.

    That interior is in dire need of a full replacement, and red leather is the perfect substitute for silver cars. :)

    It belongs to an FChat member named, ScaleDetail. If I had the money and enclosed parking space, I would be bidding on it!! Based on what I've read, he is the kind of owner I'd like to buy from, taking good care of his cars.

    I actually added several photos from the BaT listing to my screen saver. Not yet ready to buy, but these cars are motivators for me! :) lol

    That is a beautiful car the current owner bought it from another member on here. Curious to see what it will bring, I think the mileage will keep the value down which is unfortunate as it seems to be a well sorted car and I bet it could go 150 or 200 thousand miles.

    Yes "fantastic" condition for that car is quite a stretch. Yet over the years almost all of us have been aghast by someone elses definition of fantastic, perfect, mint, show, etc condition. I once viewed a Lotus esprit in Miami, the salesman propped up the rear decklid with a broom stick and said "pretty impressive condition right?"

    They can share notes with Merlin and have birthday parties for these cars.

    Drewbdo,

    I am 99% sure the car you just posted is the one I referenced above in post #1925. Pics of the radio match, as well as the mileage. Last major was done in 2012 IIRC. Now they are asking $31,000. If it just needs a 5K major, might be an ok deal. If it needs a lot more you could be upside down in today's market. It does present well in the photos.

    Interesting... They do mention it in the vehicle description, but not in the "official" VIN location. I haven't looked at enough of his listings to notice a pattern of "always", but is there some benefit to not listing VIN in the right spot?

    Hmm... if that is the same car, they shipped it from BHCC (California) to SportscarsMiami (Florida). :confused: Based on when I priced moving a car from Vegas to ATL a couple of years ago, probably $1500-$2500.

    It may be the same car... The color combo matches, the radio matches, and so do the butt marks on the driver's seat. :D lol Maybe not "butt marks" per se, but the ripples in the leather on the left front of the driver's seat look similar. o_O

    Funny thing to me... A couple of weeks ago, I found an old VHS videotape I had made in 1987 or 1988. I was about 18 or 19, and it was my first Christmas away from my parent's home, so I recorded "Season's Greetings" for them.

    Anyway, during the walk-through of my room, I filmed posters of a Countach and a Testarossa. Right below those, I had three 8-1/2x11 advertising sheets I had picked up at the Ferrari dealer. Each page had a front 3/4 view of a red Ferrari, with some of the factory specs listed.

    One of three pages was of a Mondial Cabriolet. :)
