    I'd have at least 6 Ferrari's if it wasn't for my ex-wife. KILL KILL KILL

    Surprised not to see any mention of the Sultan of Brunei...

    This is no good. She clearly doesn't know you will be there.

    I think Bardinon's collection appeals to me the most. All in due time, I suppose.

    Bardinon is indeed amazing, plus he has his own track ..so if he's bored on a sunday night, he knows what to do :)

    Andrew, you forgot Tony Wang. I think his Ferrai collection must be worth around $200M. I would choose Stroll from the ones you mentioned cus he has 4 of my faves, 250 Pontoon TR, BBLM, P4, & 512M (1970)

    I shot 96 pictures in less than an hour before everybody came inside to view the cars and listen to Jon's 2 hour 'talking tour'. Almost every Ferrari in there had a history or was a winner. Very gracious of the man to host this event. It was my first activity as a new FCA member. I sure hope he does it again this winter. I will show up with extra chips for my camera!

    Many of the NonFcars were just as nice if not rare!

    amenasce,

    regarding the Maranello Rosso....As far as I understand it, the collection is owned by an ex Ferrari driver, but I dont recall his name. theres a web site for this place, www.maranellorosso.com i think.

    The Beaulieu museum in England has got to be the best overall car collection in the world. Cars that broke land speed records, 1930 Rolls, Bentleys, etc. etc. etc. I've been, and it's incredible. http://www.beaulieu.co.uk/

    Was at the Maranello Rosso museum this spring. You can't take pictures there, but they let me snatch a few nevertheless. The place is very thight and the cars are not nicely displayed, kinda caged in. But the collection is awesome nevertheless. The guy collected "just" 250s in all styles. Plus a few race cars:

    Also I know of two major collections in Switzerland. One is allegedly in a bunker in the Swiss Alps, would survive WW3. Another one is in a warehouse. Both supposed to be significant. I once read an interview with one of the owners (the interview was done back in the late eighties) and they asked him, whether he has a TR as well and he said, no, since everybody has one of those...

    Another great place: The Schlumpf Museum in Mulhouse (France, near by Basle, Switzerland). Used to be a private collection, but when the Schlumpf brothers went belly up financially, the French Government turned it into a public museum. All kinds of old cars and a few rare Ferraris. The best part is their Le Mans and F1 grid:
