    HNY too.
    07239 was originally not dark red or Amaranto (as it is today).

    Marcel do you remember the picture of I believe s/n 06437 that was like a Pininfarina advertisement? Outdoors at a country house with a side view of the car near a woodpile. However in the colored picture the original paint on the car was showing much more blue than green. When Michael restored the car to Aqua Verde Metallizatto it came out looking much more green than the Pininfarina colored photograph. Do you have that Pininfarina photograph available or any original color image?
    Thank you.

    See also cover of FCA magazine "Prancing Horse" of 1973, issue #36.
    Aqua Verde Metallizzato is an Alfa Romeo color, a metallic sea-green.

    Yes, thank you Marcel I remember that issue but did not make the connection with that color. Did that restored car go to [name deleted] Hong Kong?
    In some notes I had for the Pininfarina picture there is also a child with a pedal car in the view that looks like a 1950's Ferrari F1 car. It even has silver headers painted on the side of the toy riding car. It was on a computer I don't have here now unfortunately!

    09657 posted on IG today by DK Engineering.

    "This 275 GTB/4, #09657, has had some pretty outrageous styling upgrades during is life including an outside filler cap, 7 Louvres per side, flared arches, a front air intake on the bonnet, recessed door handles, dive plates and to top it off a two piece targa roof! Pretty insane isn't it!? Although not true to its original form it was always fun to see what mods people carried out to their cars. Almost sadly in this day and age of Classiche we don't really see hot rods like this any more. But we sure can remember them!"

    Well, technically, in 1981(?) this car was +/- 15 year old model and if today we were to search some now +/- 15 year old exotic cars with currently or recently fashionable(?) "hot rod" modifications, I'm sure plenty of examples could be found.

    CMT6891: That is the most common short nose steering wheel, but not ALL short nose cars used it.

    Another picture of 6437 shown on the ramp at Pebble Beach in 1992. The pictures were used in a later advert for European Auto. Also see the article in Cavallino #73.

    I thought to 07855 because I saw it in Monaco in 2008 and apparently, it was in Maranello when you took your pics one year before...

    Is it the same fog light as on s/n 06601? If so, anyone know the make/part no. of the unit/lens? Is it a Carello lamp?
