    I usually put between 4,000 and 6,000 miles per year on mine. It's a 1967 330 GTC.
    Leaks a little, smokes a little but it a great driver, the A/C works very well and it runs fine on regular gas.

    I've seen a few of the really early cars in the uk being driven on a fairly regular basis, there's a 166MM Barchetta that's regularly seen at club events and in the classics car mags (think the reg was YPY333 or something similar)

    You could be describing an ex-girlfriend! :D

    The guy in New Orleans still drives his $6MM car regularly, including track time.

    1,000 miles a year is hardly what I would consider a car that is "driven regularly" unless you live on some 10 square mile island somewhere! 1,000 miles a year is a garage queen IMHO.

    I assume you're referring to "Victory by Design" with host Alain de Cadenet?

    Great show. Lots of references to this program in the archives.

    Richard Coltrin drives his 250SWB in the UK very regularly, I believe he easily does 10k+ miles a year :)

    Alan DeCadenet (sp?) drives his 30's Alfa Romeo 8c all the time apparently. Even uses to go to the clubs ...

    While that is not a Ferrari I believe it was a Ferrari team car ... and is worth a **** load.

    Don't know about Ferraris but there is a guy on the LamboList with more than 250k on a 400GT, all driven by him. Now THAT'S dedication! :)

    There is a 62 250GTO around here that's all original and still gets raced.
