    Hey everyone -
    I suppose you've all seen another recent post:
    http://ferrarichat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13802

    YES!! Along with some of the other so cal f-chatters (Armen, Jerry) - this has been a momentous weekend for me as well!!

    I just purchased a 1995 456GT from a fellow F-chatter in Georgia. It is Canna di Fucile, dark blue/blk interior, has 17k miles, and tubi exhaust. I spent this past weekend in Atlanta with the car and with some other f-chatters...

    Before anyone asks what I'm doing with a 2+2 and not another challenge car, just drive one and you will see... these things are SO much fun!! :) The car will hopefully be shipped to CA in the next few weeks (just in time for an early bday present!! hehe).

    Here are a few pics of the car... The pictures I took over the weekend are still on my camera and won't be posted until this weekend (I don't have the usb cable with me!!). I have TONS more high-res pictures... will post later! :)

    Enjoy!
    Byron

    Awesome! Can't wait to see it.

    I read that Forza article this past weekend regarding the 456 Buyer's guide - They sound like a blast! Gotta love the V12's!

    Congrats!!!!

    Incredible color combo and a worthy successor to the 348 Challenge. Nice job Byron! We'll definitely have to do a drive named "The 456 Byron run" once she arrives safely to CA,

    Looks beautiful. I wish you much happiness and many great drives.

    Last night at HOB, the GM was asking me about putting together a Ferrari event. How about a 456 theme or a F-1 viewing party? PM or call me.

    Byron,
    nice choice.
    congratulations.

    are you going to add some personalized touch?
    are you going to put aftermarket wheels and tires?

    Thank you so much everyone for your congratulations... It's such a warm feeling!!

    Gene, to answer your question, yes. It has a tubi exhaust on it already, but I hope to add a few more things like 18-19" wheels (thinking about HRE's or Kinesis) and possibly replacement resonators or even test pipes.

    But first, I need to get the car!! :)

    Martin, if you're watching this thread... call me "grandpa" all you want!! I'm going to enjoy this one, I think! ;)

    I hope to have it here by 4/23... just in time for a drive on 4/25? :)

    Byron

    Love the color Grandpa Byron!

    I am actually looking at a 99 MGTA for Mario right now that I can get super cheap.
    Also looking at a tax bill that will let GWB ride in a 360 Spider as of April 15th.
    Decisions, decisions.
